Can I build a lattice from the edges of a part?

Question:

Can I build a lattice on the edges of a part?

I have an existing lattice and I want to connect it by creating beams from the edges of the part it is created from. 

Answer:

To build a lattice from the edges of a part, use the Surface Lattice block and choose the Surface Features setting. This setting creates lattice beams from the edges of the part. 

If you want to add this lattice to an existing lattice, convert both lattices into Implicit Bodies (using Thicken Body) and Boolean Union them together.
