General Electric Final Products
Using the Electron Beam Printers Sarah Hammond, Gwyn Kavalew, and Shreya Jaspuria each designed and produced a product that utilized a unique feature or features that electron beam printing can do. Below are the results of the semester partnership with General Electric Additive Manufacturing division.
The glasses shown here were designed using the combination of Fusion 360 and nTopology and were then prototyped by General Electric using their Electron Beam Printers in a Titanium alloy. The two glasses utilize two different lattice structures from nTopology, the first eyeglass frame utilizes the Tet Oct Edge Lattice, while the second pair uses the Stochastic Voronoi Surface BETA lattice. The unique structure of the lattice allows material usage to be minimized while maintaining maximum strength, while also providing a unique aesthetic and style.
