Question:

Can I create Periodic Body Lattices using hexagonal or triangular packing?

Applies to:

  • Lattices

Answer:

Currently, our Periodic Body Lattices are built using cube packing. You can get triangular lattices by using some of the lattice from mesh blocks, such as Lattice Body from Surface Mesh. You can also use Lattice Body from Surface Voronoi to create lattices that will have a slightly hexagonal shape. These two methods use the underlying mesh to create the lattice, so the shape of the lattice may vary depending on the mesh.
