Key Software Capabilities

  • Lattice structures
  • Field Optimization

Shin guards and other protective sports equipment are worn by athletes to prevent injury. Customization ensures a better fit, enables a wider range of motion and improves comfort and protection.

In this nTop Live, Yuki Okada, Technical Marketing Engineer at nTop, shows you how to use 3D scan data of a leg to design a custom shin guard. He creates a reusable workflow that generates strong, lightweight, and aesthetically pleasing shin guards that conform to the anatomy of an athlete. He also shows you how to use fields in nTop to generate many design variations of a shin guard.

Watch and learn how to:

  • Import 3D scan data in nTop and use them as input to drive custom designs
  • Create multiple design variations of your shin guard in a few minutes for testing
  • Generate and control lattices using fields to identify an optimal design
