Designing manufacturing-ready conformal lattices and periodic structures
Published on October 5, 2020
Modern engineering design software can generate intricate geometry, like lattices or other periodic structures. But the design output may not be always immediately manufacturable.
In this nTop Live, Matt Shomper, Director of Engineering at Tangible Solutions, shows you how to use Field-Driven Design to create conformal periodic structures in nTop. He shows techniques to map repeated patterns to any shape and create parts that are ready for prototyping or production.
Watch and learn how to:
- Create repeated patterns that conform to your part geometry
- Use the Remap nTop block to create geometric gradients
- Prepare complex lattice or periodic structures for manufacturing
