General Lattice announces beta version of its Digital Materials Platform, designed for Additive Manufacturing

General Lattice, a company that designs and builds digital materials solutions, launches the beta release of its Digital Materials Platform. Named Frontier, the platform is designed for Additive Manufacturing and aims to foster the use of lattice structures by treating them as traditional materials with tangible properties.

Frontier provides a free-to-search library of validated mechanical property data to support users in the selection of the best lattice, material, and hardware combination. Users can search, analyze, and order physical samples for hands-on evaluation.

Eliminating costly guess and check workflows, Frontier finds the needle in the haystack so users don’t have to, saving time, money, and resources. The future of manufacturing is undeniably digital and Digital Materials deliver a quantum leap in product development capabilities.

General Lattice is currently working with hardware and material companies to provide a centralized source for validated Digital Material information. Some of the company’s partners include EOS, BASF Forward AM, and Photocentric with an emphasis on understanding Digital Materials comprised of elastomeric polymers targeted toward foam replacement applications.

These tools will reduce the effort and costs to replace foam via drop-in lattice solutions, as well as reduce waste generated by physical prototype iterations,” Dave Krzeminski, Ph.D. Senior Additive Minds Consultant at EOS.

As the Frontier platform continues to expand, additional partners will be added, and the breadth of Digital Materials will grow to include metals, ceramics, and composites. Frontier (BETA) is already available and a full version with integration capabilities will become available later this year.
