The lattice structure is a type of cellular materials [1] that has truss-like structures with interconnected struts and nodes in a three-dimensional (3D) space. Compared to other cellular materials such as random foams and honeycombs, the lattice structures exhibit better mechanical performance [2]. Some examples of lattice structures are shown in Figure 8.1. The first one is a randomized lattice structure. Due to the disordered lattice cells, the properties of this type of lattice structures are stochastic and difficult to control. But it can be used as implants in orthopedic surgeries. The second and the third are lattice structures with...
