Why isn't the TPMS/Lattice thickness constant when I distort it?

Issue:

I've distorted my TPMS and the thickness isn't constant after I've distorted it. 

Applies to:

  • Varying cell size
  • Warping
  • Remapping

Cause:

We are currently working on fixing this issue. 

Solution:

When building your TPMS, try this workflow:

  • Set gyroid to 0 thickness
  • Remap the Field
  • Thicken Body

This should allow the TPMS to have a constant thickness.

Another method is to Normalize the Field of the TPMS by using the Custom Block, Normalize Field. This block is attached below.
