A Method to Generate a Graded Honeycomb Lattice Structure using Circle Packing for Additive Manufacturing

Invention Reference Number


Technology Summary

We developed a novel method to generate a non-uniform, graded honeycomb structure that can be locally scaled based on a given field (e.g., internal stress) using a circle packing algorithm.
