The Lattice Advantage

Lattices created with Carbon® Design Engine can improve performance, reduce time to market, and create radically distinctive products. They’re the perfect design companion to the Carbon DLS 3D printing process, which can fabricate latticed designs with excellent detail and surface finish at any volume in a wide range of rigid and elastomeric materials.

High-Resolution Metamaterials

Lattices turn materials into programmable building blocks that can be tuned to deliver exactly the characteristics you require at every millimeter. Unlike conventional foams and fillers that deliver the same characteristics everywhere across a volume, lattices can vary in density and shape throughout a single part to deliver different characteristics in different zones. They can even be tuned to have different responses to forces in different directions.

Automated Design for Rapid Product Development

With Design Engine’s inverse design approach, achieving that highly-optimized performance couldn’t be easier. Instead of time-consuming trial-and-error, just specify the mechanical performance you require at any set of locations on your part, and Design Engine generates a lattice form that meets your requirements.

A New Design Language

Lattices can’t be manufactured with legacy manufacturing processes like injection molding and machining. Products with lattices are immediately distinctive: a lattice communicates attention to quality and a forward-looking approach to technology.
