Our Lattice Graph interchange module allows lattices to be imported and exported in a lightweight, open source, XML based file format. This allows you to analyze even the most complex structures using your existing FEA toolset - without having to deal with slow, heavy 3D meshes.
Rule Builder & Library
The heart of lattice design is the ability to create and use infinitely variable lattice topologies in your designs. With our lattice rule builder you can do just that. Select from our wide variety of predefined tessellations and units - or create your own from scratch.
Our Stochastic structures module enables users to generate a wide range of random, pseudorandom, and semi-random lattices. These can be applied to both volumes and surfaces, and can be analyzed and edited using the same tools in Element Free.
Vector Field Structures
With our vector field module, you can generate surface and conformal lattice topologies that follow user-defined vectors along an input CAD surface.
Element's Offset thickening module allows for lattice beams with non-round cross sections to be generated and thickened. Whether you're interested in improving printability or want to create beams with specific directional properties, Offset thickening offers another dimension to your design freedom.
We get it - STLs suck. With our CAD interchange module, you get full access to import and export native CAD data in a variety of formats.
FEA Analysis + Optimization
Our hex FEA module allows you to run an initial analysis on your part, and saves that analysis to be used as an input to your lattice design.
With our conformal structure module, you can create lattices that follow the form of your part - and support just the loads that you need them to.
