1. A method performed by a three dimensional (3D) modeling program on a computer comprising a processor and a memory, the method comprising:
obtaining a lattice within a 3D lattice design space for a 3D model being created with the 3D modeling program;
identifying junctions in the lattice that are potential sources of particle traps at an interface between the 3D lattice design space and a surface present in the 3D model; and
removing the potential sources of particle traps by modifying cell space defined between the identified junctions and the surface.
