My second print of these cube micro structures was done in Photocentric clear flexible UV Laser Resin on my Form 2 with the Standard Clear... V2 Settings in OpenMode. Here is the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE_UwaZH2pk

Lattices - Microstructures
Lattice structures normally are intended to optimize functional parts by making them light-weight and strong by filling ...the inside with a complex structure. This is used in aerospace technology to save on fuel while flying and still maintaining structural integrity and strength of the parts that are optimized.
Nowadays these structures can be achieved with metal 3D printing (laser sintering, laser melting and the like). But these structures are also interesting from a design perspective. The pure beauty of them inspires to use these structures in architecture, fashion or other fields.
Here are my tests with different topologies, printed on a Formlabs Form2 (SLA printing) with clear UV resin. If you want to create your own structures head over to NTopolgy ( https://www.ntopology.com
) they have a beautiful free tool for that.
You will find more footage next week on my Instagram, Facebook and Youtube accounts.
I hope you got inspired like me and get hands-on designing. Let me know in the comments what projects you came up with.
