Abstract Scope Using HRL’s rapid and scalable self-propagating photopolymer waveguide process, microlattices that achieve the significant performance gains of geometrically complex, topologically optimized structures can be fabricated without incurring the cost or rate limitations of conventional additive manufacturing approaches. We present the design and fabrication of optimal microlattice architectures for varying applications, including nanocrystalline metallic sandwich cores with optimized strength anisotropy for use in ultra-lightweight aerospace structures and viscoelastic impact attenuators with optimized post buckling behavior for use in head protection systems. We consider spatially and temporally varying boundary conditions in addition to fabrication constraints to develop optimal architectures with extreme performance that remain amenable to scalable manufacturing. Further, the open cellular structure of our microlattice architectures are designed to achieve desirable fluid flow characteristics for multiple uses, including thermal management, wash-out tooling for rapid sandwich panel fabrication, and improved comfort or energy absorption for head protection applications.
