Foam-like 3D printed lattices for helmet liner design
Published on November 18, 2020
The main advantage of 3D printed helmet liners over traditional foam liners is that you have complete control over the behavior of the designed structure. By adjusting the parameters of the lattice, you can design foam-like structures with precisely engineered properties.
In this nTop Live, Annika Norden, Customer Success Engineer at nTop, shows you how to generate conformal helmet liners in nTop. She first describes how to define a custom unit cell to create a lattice structure optimized for impact absorption and then applies it to the geometry of a helmet liner.
Watch and learn how to:
- Define a custom lattice unit cell in nTop
- Import a basic helmet geometry designed in CAD into nTop
- Build a reusable workflow that generates data-driven conformal lattices
