Stochastic Structures

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.

Pressure vessel workflow

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.

Element Free 0.13.0

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.

Element Free 0.12.7

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.
