Define the lattice representation by selecting from the list next to . The lattice representations that are available depend on the lattice type.

Full geometry —Creates full lattice geometry that includes all properties and an accurate appearance. Full geometry representation requires more resources and might cause the system to be slow, particularly when the lattice contains a large number of lattice cells. Full geometry representations can be exported to 3D printers.Simplified —Creates a light-weight approximation of the lattice. The mass properties are also approximated. Using a simplified representation enhances performance.Starting in Creo 5, simplified lattices are included in the calculation of mass properties. For lattices saved before Creo 5, you must regenerate the model before simplified lattices are included.

Homogenized —For beams lattice, creates a special quilt with semi-transparent surfaces to represent the lattice volume. This representation defines the lattice without actually creating it in the model. The mathematical definition of the lattice is stored with the model, to use for analyses in. Homogenized representation is specially used for dense lattice structures, as it considerably reduces model size and analysis run time. Not homogenized:

Homogenized:

Voxelized —In formula-driven lattice, creates lattice using voxels.—Sets the level of accuracy of the voxel representation.

Custom —Design your own lattice cell inPart mode, and then import the PRT file into the part model to use as the lattice cell. Open Cell —Imports the part to use as a cell for a custom designed lattice feature.

Mixed representation geometry is bodies that contain geometry other than boundary representation (b-rep) geometry. Simplified lattice, homogenized lattice, and voxelized lattice are types of mixed representation geometry.

The following behaviors apply to mixed representation geometry

Cannot be selected as modifying bodies in Boolean operations.

Cannot be split.

Cannot be used as a tool to cut b-rep geometry.
