nTop Live: Heat Sink Design for LED Lighting Pt.2 | Simulation

screenshot from video

With additive manufacturing, we can create heat sinks for LED lighting that are more efficient and have better aesthetics than traditional designs. Using simulation software, we can quickly validate the performance of our design and refine or improve its geometry accordingly.

In this nTop Live, Alec Guay, Application Engineer at nTopology, shows you how to perform a thermal analysis on a 3D printed heat sink. He also uses the simulation results to influence future design iterations to increase heat dissipation.

Follow the link to watch Pt.1 of the series.

Watch and learn how to:

  • Set up and run a basic thermal analysis in nTopology
  • Create a field from the point map sim results to influence future geometry
  • Apply nTopology’s simulation tools to analyze designs & iterate faster
