New product updates
New latticing technology
Last week was the release of our 3rd generation latticing technology! The new tools are easy to use, faster than before, and offer greater control over complex lattice structures.
We asked the nTop community what they think about this update. Here are some of the comments we received from nTop users:
The next time you open nTop, you will notice things look slightly different.
The new scene lighting and ambient occlusion improve visualization and better convey the depth of the geometry.
In other words, the lattice structures that you’ll design with the new latticing tools will now also look better than ever!

There are three levels to Design for Additive Manufacturing:
- At a basic level, you address the question: “will it print?”
- At an intermediate level, you consider how to improve performance.
- At an advanced level, you manage the complexities of full-scale production.
We put together a guide that runs through these concepts. It’s a solid introduction to the topic for new designers and serves as a good reminder for experienced users.
Quote of the month
nTop (formerly nTopology) was founded in 2015 with the belief that engineers’ ability to innovate shouldn’t be limited by their design software. Built on proprietary technologies that upend the constraints of traditional CAD software while integrating seamlessly into existing processes, nTop allows designers in every industry to create complex geometries, optimize instantaneously, and automate workflows to develop breakthrough 3D-printed parts in record time.
