Abstract: Additively manufactured lattice materials are of great interest in many applications, however the surface defects generated during manufacturing can prove a significant barrier. The small feature size and intricate geometry makes characterisation of lattice struts difficult, so we present StrutSurf as a new tool for analysis of lattice struts. Using micro-CT data, StrutSurf allows random sampling of struts within a lattice, and automates analysis to provide detailed morphological information such as strut diameter, ellipticity, orientation, and surface roughness. StrutSurf will enable a range of new research questions to be investigated such as the effects of surface treatments and other manufacturing methods on strut morphology and roughness.
