Golf putter meets nTop - How to design a golf putter for 3D printing
Key Software Capabilities
- Surface textures
- Design automation
In golf, a lighter putter gives you a better feel, and allows you to control the movement and rotation of the golf club. With nTop, we can reduce the weight of every aspect of the putter head — from the face to the sole — and optimize it for 3D printing, while creating a design with a unique appearance.
In this nTop Live, Yuki Okada, Technical Marketing Engineer at nTop, shows you how to lightweight a putter using a simple workflow and basic latticing techniques. He breaks down each section of the putter and gives you a quick rundown of the techniques he applied.
Watch and learn how to:
- Add surface texturing on the face of the putter to improve the roll and skid
- Generate lattices in areas you want to lightweight to control the center of gravity
- Add a logo or other image to customize the putter head
