Despite the many benefits of lattice structures, their use also presents some challenges. These challenges include optimizing material usage for cost and sustainability, reducing weight to improve performance and reduce costs, and designing structures that are strong and able to manage fluid flow and heat dissipation. Addressing these challenges requires specialized solutions and a deep understanding of the capabilities and limitations of lattice structures.
Our partner Solo Lattices solution, Mocha, is designed to make lattice creation easy and efficient for all engineers. Mocha features fully conformal lattices that can be automatically generated to conform to any closed volume, the ability to use CAD features and traditional geometry in lattice generation, and the use of generative design tools to optimize lattice characteristics and achieve desired mechanical properties for a variety of materials and additive manufacturing technologies. The solution is based on years of expertise in the field and aims to revolutionize the way teams think about and use lattices.
