LatticeRobot® is a community of engineers working together to integrate the diverse knowledge of metamaterials into a consistent, normalized, and reusable engineering database that anyone can browse, filter, and drill into, learning about what choices might be best for a given material or manufacturing process.
Our interactive experience is designed not only to be engaging for those new to lattice engineering but also a rich and powerful resource for research and engineering professionals. LatticeRobot provides you with a top-down view of the lattice landscape as well as a HUD to navigate related structures.
Engineers can go deep with a Wikipedia-like page on each lattice profile, learning about applications, successes, and failures from other contributors. LatticeRobot seeks to integrate both quantitative and qualitative information about volume and surface lattices, as well as manufacturing surface textures, metamaterial properties, and other mesoscale properties such as composites and multi-material structures.
The LatticeRobot journey ends when the engineer is delivered to the most fit design software, manufacturing partner, or material landing page (on their own respective websites), matching users with the exact solutions for their challenges. LatticeRobot not only makes it easy to discover lattices, but also discover products and services that cater to their professional needs.
Behind LatticeRobot are sophisticated modeling, simulation, and machine learning tools that breathe magic into the data. For every new unit cell LatticeRobot ingests, the geometry is homogenized and simulated, and independent parameters like thickness, size, and aspect ratio are also automatically varied to map its entire functional gamut. By focusing on data at a parametric unit cell level, we offer the world’s first view of multiphysics lattices that can deliver several engineering applications simultaneously.
The power of LatticeRobot comes from its ability to synthesize functional lattice unit cells for use in software applications that produce latticed parts. LatticeRobot contains an implicit parametric model of each lattice as well as the functional tables to modulate it, and we fuse those together to make a bespoke, downloadable, optimized unit cell function that works with all modern lattice software like nTop, Solo Lattices, [….]. By focusing on unit cells as code, LatticeRobot enables portability and interoperability for functional lattices, a new class of live engineering data.
LatticeRobot is headquartered in Dayton, OH.
