Give outside lattice to my mesh

Hi Guys,

I've been attempting to give my mesh file a lattice pattern for a while, but I keep failing. Using the volumetric lattice tool in F3D, I was able to provide an infill pattern inside my mesh, but I was unable to do the same outside. My mesh would benefit from having a lattice pattern, such as a voronoi or anything else. After it is 3D printed, I want to make the mesh lighter. If I put a lattice design inside in my MJF printer, the powder will stay inside, but I need all of the powder to come out. I would really appreciate it if someone could assist me in solving this problem.

 

Additionally, I'm looking to see if I can reduce the weight of my mesh by adding a lattice between the surfaces. All ideas are welcomed!

I have attached my stl below, and also a picture from google to give an idea about what I am looking for

 

Thank you so much!!

Hi @pr1743 

After I converted the mesh to a solid, I was able to use the Volume Fields . With the complexity of the design I was unable to control the offset from the edges. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of experience with the Mesh, Volume Fields and the Geometric Pattern tools. I'd suggest posting these types of questions to the Fusion 360 Design, Validate & Document forum.

Does this help?

Hi @pr1743 

If you're not able to open the .f3d file, ensure your Fusion is up to date. A new version was released last night. Restart Fusion and the update process will be completed.

Okay, I am able to open it now but do you know if it is possible for me to give a lattice pattern in the middle region of the shell?

Hi @pr1743 

With the complexity of the helmet, I was also unable to control the pattern so it stayed inside the helmet. You could try to offset the outside faces into the helmet. Then combine these surfaces and use the surface to split the inside body. Then apply the lattice to the inside body. 
Does anyone else have any thoughts on how to solve this?

Thanks,

-Dan
