nTop Live: Automated Generation of Complex Hole & Perforation Patterns

Perforation patterns are extremely common in engineering. They are used for ventilation, thermal management, lightweighting, or even as decorative elements. Yet, creating non-standard or conformal patterns is not a simple task in traditional CAD software.

In this nTop Live, Chase Allan, Solutions Engineer at nTopology, demonstrates clever ways to add complex perforation patterns to any part in nTop Platform using the available advanced latticing tools.

Watch and learn how to:

  •  Use latticing workflows to create complex perforation patterns
  •  Create cutouts with a non-round shape or non-uniform size
  •  Use fields to spatially control the size and location of the perforations
