Enhancing Additive Designs for Bike Grips using nTop Platform

Pairing additive manufacturing with nTop Platform facilitates the creation of unique products and parts not possible through traditional methods. The mechanical engineers at Avid Product Development, a subsidiary of Lubrizol Advanced Materials Inc., have enhanced the functionality and aesthetics of their additive designs with lattice structures and complex surface textures.

3D printing with Lubrizol ESTANE® thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) enables Avid’s mechanical engineers to push the boundaries of design to create a metamaterial more closely simulating a lower durometer TPU. In this Live Session, Connor Reddington and Drew Baggen, Mechanical Engineers at Avid Product Development, will demonstrate how they use nTop Platform to lattice and create custom surface textures on specific sections of a part.

Watch this webinar recording to learn how to:

  • Manipulate your native CAD file to best prepare your model for your planned nTop applications
  • Use lattice structures to craft a metamaterial by altering the infill structure of a model
  • Create custom surface textures on isolated sections of a part to enhance functionality and aesthetics
