Enabling Custom Mechanical Responses Using Spatially Varying Lattices

It’s undeniable that lattices are the future of product development. When paired with high-quality materials, lattices allow designers to specify the characteristics required for their products at every millimeter, bringing new heights of performance and customization within reach. Unlike conventional foams and fillers that deliver the same characteristics everywhere across a volume, multi-zonal lattices can vary in density and shape throughout a single part to deliver uniquely tuned characteristics in different zones.

In this white paper, we take a deep dive into the technology behind Carbon Design Engine multi-zonal lattices, including how Design Engine creates seamless lattice cell transitions, as well as the application of potential hybrid cell types.
