How to convert the structure of a volumetric lattice to a real mesh body?

A - answer If you apply a volumetric lattice in a 3D solid in Fusion 360, this internal structure will be used for 3D printing and other manufacturing technologies.

But if you need to process this lattice structure as a real shape, a surface body, you need to convert it to a 3D mesh surface first.

Right-click on the solid with the lattice structure in the browser tree (it has a little blue marker next to its icon) and select the function Create mesh from the context menu.

Specify the desired fineness (precision) of the conversion and a new 3D surface mesh representing the lattice cells will be created (the original solid will be hidden). Beware, this may create a mesh with a high complexity (i.e. slow and with a large data file). You can then edit it, reduce, export, etc. with all standard mesh tools.
