Lattices are an engineering trend but there are some core things points to understand. Lattice design is a complex game. NX’s tools allow you to select a portion of a part’s form (whether a void or a body of geometry) and fill that space with a lattice.

Convergent modeling allows lattice structures and feature based solids to work as one. Lattice structures help with designing lightweight components while maintaining structural integrity and strength, and are specifically designed for processes like additive manufacturing.
