Key Software Capabilities
- Lattice structures
3D printed lattices are used in medical implant design to create structures that mimic the properties of bone. These implants promote osseointegration and result in improved patient recovery.
In this nTop Live, Christopher Cho, Senior Application Engineer at nTop, shows you how to design and control randomized lattices in nTop. He creates a workflow to generate osseointegrative lattices and reuses it on both a tibial tray and an acetabular cup.
Watch and learn how to:
- Import basic geometry from CAD to nTop
- Generate randomized lattices with gradient thickness and porosity
- Mesh your design to prepare them for additive manufacturing
