Hello

 

Normally a lattice optimization does create lattice structures of different elements. Does a way exist to set a minium diameter of the lattice structure?

I know the function 'MINRAD', which cleans in the second optimization phase and eliminates all elements above the set value. If I use MINRAD, almost all  lattice structures are eliminated, as they are quite small (between 0.0027 and 0.335 mm). The ideal lattice structure would have diameters above 0.5 or 1 mm. How can this be set?

 

I thank you in advance for your help!

Hello

 

Thank you! 

Well the minimum diameter is also related to the element size. I guess by setting a mesh with enough big elements, will create bigger lattice structures.

How does the MINDIM work? 

 

I have changed the elment mesh size to 7.5 mm and set MINDIM to 0.5 mm. But I still get lattice structures with smaller diameters (Ømin=0.038 mm).
