I would like to design lattice structures that will be 3D printed in metal for a specific application, so they need to be accurate.
Cocoon does a great job at adding a mesh around the curves but:
1_ The resulted Cocoon mesh diameter is smaller than the specified one (see image where Cocoon mesh diameter is smaller than pipe diameter altought both are specified to 2mm)
2_ The lattice nodes have bumps due to being summed (not desirable)
My questions are:
1_ Is there a way to get exact diameters, for example an exact 2mm diameter truss mesh
2_ Is there a way to remove the bumps in the lattice nodes and have a uniform diameter instead (ex: exactly 2mm mesh diameter)
I have just started to use Cocoon and I would appreciate it if someone can explain the different parameters (couldn’t find explanations elsewhere), for example of Iso, Cell size and refine cocoon parameters.
