The ease of lightweighting with conformal lattices in nTop
Published on April 2, 2020
Key Software Capabilities
- Lattice structures
While designing parts for additive manufacturing, extra mass equals higher cost. Conformal lattice structures are a powerful tool for creating lightweight parts that meet design requirements.
In this nTop Live Evan Pilz, Application Engineer at nTop, shows how to quickly create a conformal lattice based on simulation results in nTop. He applies this knowledge to optimize the structure of an automotive brake pedal.
Watch and learn how to:
- Use conformal lattices to design lightweight components
- Vary the thickness of the lattice-based on simulation results
- Follow the principles of Field-Driven Design to generate optimized results
