How to Design Heat Exchangers for Additive Manufacturing

screenshot from video

By combining Additive Manufacturing with advanced engineering design software, you can develop compact heat exchangers with superior performance and reliability.

A unique capability of AM is its ability to construct intricate lattice structures. More specifically, Triply Periodic Minimal Surface (TPMS) lattices, like the gyroid, are an ideal candidate for designing heat exchanger cores. This video covers the basic steps required to design a heat exchanger using nTopology.
