meta.materials: Shock Absorbing Lattice Structures

Designing material behaviour through internal structures.

  • Lightweight: Reduce volume.

  • Custom Performance: Variable density lattice.

  • Optimised for AM materials and manufacturing methods.

Project Sample:

Shock absorbing insole.
Biometric data-driven variable density lattice structure.

  1. Design of a shock absorbing lattice structure.

  2. Populate the insole volume with the designed structure.

  3. Align the insole with a 3D scan of the wearer’s foot.

  4. Define the performance of the insole by selectively assigning different density to the lattice structure.
