Crystallon Version 2—lattice structures for Grasshopper

Crystallon, an open-source project for creating lattice structures using Rhino and Grasshopper, has released its Version 2. 

Some of the new features in Version 2 are: 
  • Utilities for export to FEA packages like Abaqus and Calculix. 
  • Export beams, shells, and tetrahedral elements.
  • Includes a component for generating lattice hinges, cuts made in a rigid material to allow it to bend into a developable 3D surface. 
  • Tools to calculate the surface curvature and apply patterns to the flattened surface in the direction of the bend, ready for CNC or laser cutter.
Download Crystallon Version 2 for free on food4Rhino. For news, tutorials, and new tools visit www.fequalsf.com or follow on Instagram @fequalsf.
