Standard hip joint socket
This showcase demonstrates different hip joint socket lattice designs that can be printed with high detail resolution on the TruPrint machines. By preheating to 500 °C, the number of support structures can be reduced to an absolute minimum. This allows the components to be stacked, thereby enabling mass production by reducing material costs and shortening production cycles.
Stacked hip joint sockets made of titanium, thanks to 500 °C preheating
Finest lattice structures: conformal, randomly closed, random, unit cell, Voronoi
