Mesoscopic lightweight construction with hexagonal honeycombs

Lattice and honeycomb structures
© Fraunhofer IGCV
  • Design of lattice and honeycomb structures for additive manufacturing under the bionic approach of force-optimized adaptation
  • Increased competitiveness through constructions based on lightweight construction principles
  • Mass savings and reduction of energy consumption during operation
  • Ecological and economical handling of raw materials
  • High-strength lightweight construction with honeycomb structure due to the highest compressive load on the honeycomb with a minimum core weight
  • Use in sandwich structures
  • Add-on for Siemens NX to create free-form surfaces
