nTop Live: Computational Design of Performance-Driven Heat Sinks

screenshot from video

The power of computational design is that you can use underlying physics equations to drive geometry and hit performance targets. By combining this key benefit with a Field Driven Design approach, you can create truly optimal designs.

In this nTop Live, Gabrielle Thelen, Application Engineer at nTopology, shows you how to set up a fully parametric design workflow to generate performance-driven, power module heat sinks. She uses straight and sinusoidal wave fins to increase surface area while maintaining the desired heat sink’s footprint.

Watch and learn how to:

  • Use equation & math blocks to generate designs based on analytical sizing
  • Control geometry using Field Driven Design to create optimized heat sinks
  • Link variables together to build a truly parametric, performance-driven workflow
