nTop Live: Advanced Lattice Design For Orthopedic Implants

Lattice structures play a key role in designing 3D printed medical implants with osseointegrative properties. But to differentiate your product, it may not be enough to simply apply a lattice structure to your designs. Being able to control every aspect of the lattice is essential for designing market-leading implantable orthopedic devices.

In this nTop Live, Christopher Cho, Senior Application Engineer at nTopology, shows you advanced techniques for controlling and manipulating lattice structures in nTop Platform. He uses gradients to create lattices with non-uniform properties and shows you ways to prepare your designs for manufacturing.

Watch and learn how to:

  • Modify, trim, and extend an osseointegrative lattice structure in nTop Platform
  • Control the beam thickness and porosity of a lattice using gradient controls
  • Prepare your file for manufacturing by refining the mesh to different levels of fidelity

This is the second part in an nTop Live series focusing on implantable medical devices.
