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.
