Different Lattice Geometries for Different Purposes


Hollow is a cloud platform that encourages people to maximise the material efficiency of SLA 3D printing by using the space and material of the support. A cloud tool helps convert the support into useful things, and the open-source community allows people to share the concepts and inspire each other.

In SLA 3D printing, the material efficiency is very low, the material used for support when printing shell typed object may contribute more than half of the total material consumption. This will become non-recyclable waste. Hollow allows users to make use of that material and largely improve the material efficiency.
