Snapshots of a day

Added on by Spencer Wright.

Some semi-random screenshots from a day's worth of lattice design in nTopology Element Pro:

There have been a bunch of big updates to Element recently, and this workflow takes advantage of a few of them. In particular, the new Warp to Shape tool is very helpful; I also used the Extract tool and the Remesher to make some nice selective surface lattices.

The last, and really the biggest, thing here is the conversion into Abaqus for beam analysis & sizing optimization - see the last photo above. I'll be working on & posting more about that in the next few days - stay tuned :)
