Application: Lattice transitioning structures in additively manufactured products (Patent ID: US20240093744A1)

The patent filed by Carbon Inc. describes an additively manufactured lattice structure that includes two different three-dimensional lattice units connected by a transitional segment. This transitional segment consists of two three-dimensional transitional lattices, each repeating the array of the corresponding lattice unit cell. The lattice structure can be produced using additive manufacturing processes like SLS, FDM, SLA, 3DP, or MJM, and can be made from materials such as polymer, metal, ceramic, or composites. The lattice structure can be rigid, flexible, or elastic, and can be used in various applications such as braces, shock absorbers, cushions, or pads.

The lattice structure described in the patent can be customized by adding additional lattice units and transitional segments, allowing for a gradual change in lattice unit cell size from one lattice to another. The method of making the lattice structure involves generating digital models and producing the object through additive manufacturing. Additionally, a computer program product is provided that generates the lattice structure by creating interconnected arrays of lattice unit cells and transitional segments. This innovative lattice structure design can find applications in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, wearable protective devices, beds, and seats, due to its unique properties and customizable nature.
