nTop Live: Golf Putter meets nTopology – How to Design a Golf Putter for 3D printing

screenshot from video

In golf, a lighter putter gives you a better feel, and allows you to control the movement and rotation of the golf club. With nTopology, we can reduce the weight of every aspect of the putter head — from the face to the sole — and optimize it for 3D printing, while creating a design with a unique appearance. 

In this nTop Live, Yuki Okada, Technical Marketing Engineer at nTopology, shows you how to lightweight a putter using a simple workflow and basic latticing techniques. He breaks down each section of the putter and gives you a quick rundown of the techniques he applied. 

Watch and learn how to:

  • Add surface texturing on the face of the putter to improve the roll and skid 
  • Generate lattices in areas you want to lightweight to control the center of gravity 
  • Add a logo or other image to customize the putter head
