nTop Live: The Ease of Lightweighting with Conformal Lattices in nTop Platform

screenshot from video

While designing parts for additive manufacturing, extra mass equals  higher cost. Conformal lattice structures are a  powerful tool for creating lightweight parts that meet design requirements.

In this nTop Live Evan Pilz, Application Engineer at nTopology, shows how to quickly create a conformal lattice based on simulation results in nTop Platform. He applies this knowledge to optimize the structure of an automotive brake pedal.

Watch and learn how to:

  • Use conformal lattices to design lightweight components
  • Vary the thickness of the lattice-based on simulation results
  • Follow the principles of Field-Driven Design to generate optimized results
