Carbon Design Engine™

Generate Conformal, Performance-Oriented Lattices

Lattices offer a radically new set of tools for product design. They reduce material usage, improve cushioning and dampening, increase breathability, and differentiate products with a slick, novel aesthetic. With Carbon Design Engine, making lattices is easier than ever. Carbon Design Engine is a lattice design generator that automates the process of creating conformal, single-zone lattices, saving engineers significant time and effort.

How Carbon Design Engine Fits into Your Workflow

From Idea to Functional Lattice in Hours

Design Engine’s powerful cloud-based computation can generate advanced conformal lattices in minutes. Pair Design Engine with Carbon’s 3D printers and you’ll go from idea to printed part in just a few hours.

Performance-Oriented Lattice Parts

Before you click generate, Design Engine saves you time and helps you tune your design by accurately predicting material savings and mechanical responses as you experiment with different lattice designs.

Proven in Production

Carbon Design Engine is a core lattice-design technology used in real-world, production parts today. Offering deep integration with Carbon’s best-in-class materials and reliable, consistent 3D printing platform, Design Engine makes producing end-use lattices simple.

Powerful Tools, No Tedious Tuning

Designing lattices can require tedious, manual work that is prone to errors that can significantly impact part performance. Carbon Design Engine automatically resolves lattice features, both large and small, and cuts down on development time by accurately predicting mechanical performance when lattices are printed with Carbon’s industry-leading materials.

Amazing New Capabilities, One Great Subscription

It’s easier than ever to make latticed parts because Carbon Design Engine is included with every Carbon printer subscription.
