We've been hard at work developing some new and very powerful lattice design tools for the official release of Element 1.0.
Check out our new case study that optimizes structural ribs around a pressure vessel using imported stress data from SimSolid.
As we've been working on nTopology Element Pro's advanced features (mainly our FEA and DFM tools), a lot of users (including our friend Kenneth Nai) asked for a very simple enhancement: The ability to measure things in the scene.
Recently we released Element Pro's fifth big feature: our Stochastic Structures module. This allows engineers to create random and pseudorandom lattices with tuned densities and pore sizes, and is targeted at applications in medical implants, chemical processing, and filtration.
This post will take you through the CAD design of this pressure vessel. The vessel is composed of a solid outer shell reinforced with a lattice on the underside. With two halves bolting together to create the entire vessel, each screw hole is also reinforced with a lattice of its own.
Last week we released Element 0.13.0, which brought with it a few big improvements to our user interface. We think they'll help users learn the lattice design process much more quickly, and I wanted to run them down here.
Last week we released a significant update to Element, our free lattice design software. In addition to a major change to our windowing system, we also changed the lattice generation workflow a bit and added the first Element Pro module.
Since releasing our Element Free lattice design software, we've gotten a few notes asking for product documentation.
Over the past few months, we've been working hard on a free version of our Element lattice design software.
Just a quick public service announcement: the nTopology team will be at a few industry events in the coming months.
