Since our last software release article, Gen3D has released a host of new features and improvements to Sulis Lattice and Sulis Flow. Culminating in V1.10 which was released in March 2022, these new features give users unparalleled design freedoms for additive manufacturing. In the Lattice module, new features include custom …

benefits of 3D printed metamaterials - examples of multimaterial lattices

Multi-functional lattice structures utilising metamaterials have the potential to radically change the future of products that we use in our daily lives and the way in which industries like aerospace and the medical field operate. There are many benefits to 3D printed metamaterials that go way beyond the lightweighting offered …

Direct Energy Deposition - DED - one of the 7 AM technologie

Additive manufacturing (AM) has fundamentally changed how parts across many industries are designed and fabricated. As companies invent new AM techniques, they tend to create new terms even though the core techniques are similar. With this in mind, in this post, and as per the ISO ASTM 52900 which relates …

End effectors designed by Penn State students 2021

In 2021 we supported a Summer School project for students of the Additive Manufacturing and Design Masters program at Penn State World Campus. The students were asked to design a 3D printed end effector capable of moving four ping-pong balls (at different heights) between two locations using AM appropriate design. …

Hollow strut lattice and Intersecting Gyroid Lattice

Sulis Lattice can be used to easily create complex lattice structures. Since its release in 2020, this module has become one of the simplest ways to generate high-resolution complex lattice structures for additive manufacturing. We’ve created many tutorial videos to help you grasp the basics so now it’s time to …
