3D printed foam design for automotive seat cushion
Published on February 17, 2021
3D printed foams are getting more and more attention for high-end automotive seat cushioning applications. They are lightweight, provide enhanced comfort, and are now economically viable for manufacturing at scale.
In this nTop Live, Alejandro Carcel Lopez, Application Engineer at nTop, shows you how to design and control Voronoi lattice structures to generate custom 3D printed foams. Using field-driven design, he modifies the properties of the lattice to create variable structures with tailored material behavior.
Watch and learn how to:
- Generate 3D printed foams with Voronoi lattices structures
- Control the parameters of the lattice at every point in space
- Achieve target material properties for seat cushioning
