Hi guys

I have a question about the gyroid infill … i am working a piece for manucfaturing and i choose this infill because of their properties but its really hard to produce the same infill (gyroid) in Solidworks to testing the strenght of the piece 

There any way to do that? Because Solidworks can´t load the piece with this infill and i needed to test

 

Thanks guys

Simão Manoel,

 

The easier route may be to physically test your models according to some standard.  Where I work, we occasionally perform tensile tests on specific plastic samples for chemical compatibility.  I have been able to test small parts on the same tester in order to get an idea on the characteristics of the model or material.

 

Are you wanting to vet out your model in simulation and then use the printed part or are you wanting to try and incorporate the gyroid fill into a manufactured part?
