Metal DfAM Series: Generating Optimal Trabecular and Stochastic Lattice Structures for AM Orthopedic Implants
Jonathan Buckley, Amplify Additive
In this presentation, Jonathan Buckley, Sr. AM Application Engineer with Amplify Additive, goes over the utilization of the nTop Platform in combination with Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology to generate lattice structures for AM designed implants. nTop Platform has the capability to utilize innovative techniques for lattice generation, which are required to maximize bone in-growth for optimal fixation of implants and result in improved patient outcomes. These techniques will be demonstrated by Jonathan along with EBM fabricated implants that incorporate nTopology lattice structures.
- nTop Platform, when utilized with EBM technology, results in the most optimal AM implants in the market compared to other AM technologies
- Utilization of nTop Platform in a production or R&D setting is seamless and allows the user to organize their workflows for efficiency
- As AM becomes more commonplace in various manufacturing industries, further optimizations will allow nTop Platform to reduce the number of AM software steps needed for DfAM
