Design for additive manufacturing

Yunlong’s major research is design for additive manufacturing. He is a leading developer for an opensource design for AM tool called intralattice. This tool can help designers to generate a wide range of lattice structures to further improve the functional performance of the designed parts fabricated by additive manufacturing processes. The methods and tools developed by Yunlong have been successfully applied in the wide range of industrial fields, such as bio-medical, automotive, sports equipment as well as aerospace.
