A custom microchannel design that meets 3D printing manufacturing requirements requires a sophisticated solution. These problems limit the freedom to manufacture and design cooling/thermal management devices. Generative design through topology optimization, taking DfAM (Design for Addictive Manufacturing) rules into account, offers the solution.
One advantage of thermal network models is their speed and accuracy. By reducing the system's complexity and focusing on energy balance and heat transfer, the number of variables that need to be solved is reduced, making the calculation more manageable and allowing for a fast solution.
Phase change is the process by which a substance changes from one state of matter to another. The most common phase changes include the transition from solid to liquid (melting), liquid to solid (freezing), liquid to gas (evaporation), and gas to liquid (condensation). The laws of thermodynamics govern these changes, which are caused by changes in temperature and pressure.

How does generative design of heat sink topology increase thermal performance? Imagine what it would be like to not be limited by your brain. We are all influenced by our education and life experiences, making our brain not only biased, but also limited. In heat sink design, this notion makes innovation harder than it needs to be.
Thermal design has always been a cornerstone for innovation. Today, that innovation has resulted in size conscious products that deliver more, faster, to maintain their competitive edge. This has resulted in more power being packed in today‘s smaller gadgets, which means that they generate more heat than their predecessors did. The increase in heat generation demands more robust and efficient cooling to ensure product reliability and efficiency.
When starting to design a cooling system for your application, first determine the boundary conditions of the application. Once these are established, there are additional steps to address the cooling for any product.
