How to Design & Control Lattice Structures & Gyroids Pt.2

Engineering performance requirements often vary throughout the volume of a part. This means that it is not enough to just add a lattice to your designs. For high-performance applications, you have to variably control key parameters, such as its thickness or density.

In this advanced design video, Gabrielle Thelen, Application Engineer at nTopology, explains how to use Field-Driven Design to spatially vary parameters of your lattice structures in nTop Platform. She shows computational modeling techniques that enable you to synthesize experimental and simulation data to generate advanced geometry.

Watch and learn how to:

  • Use the Ramp Block to vary design parameters throughout the volume of a part
  • Leverage computational modeling and data to generate complex and smart geometries
  • Apply gradients and spatially-varied structures in real-world applications
