Ultrasim® 3D Lattice Design

Optimize your parts to the fullest

Learn how you unlock the full potential of your 3D design

What are Lattices?

3D-printed lattices are repeated patterns comprised of a network of cells, beams, and nodes. These 3D-printed micro-architectures unlock entirely new designs that have been considered before unmakeable. This allows using only one material with a whole range of different mechanical properties by finetuning the combination of lattice characteristics leading to higher comfort, better rebound, aeration, and reduced weight.

Benefits at a Glance

  • Increased comfort
  • Better rebound
  • Cushioning
  • Aeration
  • Weight reduction

Lattice Characteristics

  • Lattice type
  • Cell size
  • Beam diameter
  • Aspect ratio

From these basic parameters millions of options can be easily created. BASF Forward AM offers 4 easy solutions to guide you through this overwhelming array of choices.
