Form and Function: Metal 3D Printing of Hybrid Lattice

Altair, Materialise and Renishaw have collaboratively created a prototype of lattice structured spider bracket; a lightweight, functional structure which echoes biological forms found in nature. The synthesis of computational design technology with performance based lattice optimization, automatic surface smoothing and re-design with metal additive layer manufacturing, resulted in the creation of this unconventional, structurally efficient, manufacturable bracket that unleashes designing potential and creativity, freeing creators of common manufacturing constraints across the entire project from conception, product performance to its realization. The printed part shows how true bio-mimicking of 3D patterns reduces stress concentrations and produces a custom tailored design that embeds organic beauty and freedom of design.

An Interview with Ben Farmer of Robot Bike Co. Discussing the Development of their R160 Bike with Altair

Robot Bike Company (RBC) is a new startup established in the UK by aerospace engineers and mountain biking enthusiasts who identified the potential of combining additive manufacturing technologies with carbon fiber to, in their own words, “create the best bike frames possible”. To deliver a customizable, lightweight, high strength bike, RBC’s frame was intended to be created from carbon fiber, a material very common in the industry. The carbon fiber tubes, as well as the bike’s other components and systems were to be joined by additively manufactured titanium ‘nodes’, manufactured based on the specification of individual riders. Altair ProductDesign’s engineering team was tasked with optimizing these joints, which included the head tube, seat post and chain stay lugs, to ensure they were as lightweight as possible and still able to withstand the forces of downhill mountain bike riding, all while being fit for the AM process.

Mahle Discuss Its Use Of The Automated Reporting Director

A close collaboration was forged between MAHLE and Altair ProductDesign to create the automated reporting solution. While Altair ProductDesign developed the code, MAHLE described the current process and reporting requirements to ensure business alignment and an effective result. Previously, users had to create a HyperView session, adjust all the pictures, snap a picture of each desired view, bring the visual assets into PowerPoint, crop and place, go back and create call-outs, and re-examine results to create notes for the report; this is now a push button operation. Using ARD, MAHLE has successfully reduced time spent on non-engineering tasks, enabling CAE analysts to better utilize their time as engineers - yielding more analysis and better design.
