Title: Method of making a three dimensional object

Abstract: A method for forming a three dimensional object, the method including the steps of generating a digital representation of the object, generating a digital representation of a build style lattice having a substantially uniform, conformal tetrahedron structure, overlaying the respective representations of the object and the build style, intersecting the overlaid representations to generate a digital representation of the object incorporating the build style; and fabricating the digital representation of the object incorporating the build style by solid free form fabrication.
