Lattice structures

Lightweight strength and stiffness for a wide range of applications in additive manufacturing

Lattice structures offer a combination of strength, stiffness, and low weight, making them valuable for use in a variety of applications, where lightweight yet strong structures are required.


Overcoming the challenges of using lattice structures in additive manufacturing

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.
