New Zealand researchers reinvent the heat exchanger with 3D printing

With the potential to shakeup the design of everything from air planes to refrigerators, Dr Tim Huber and Professor Conan Fee have developed a new metal 3D printing methodology for making high-performance heat exchangers. Elaborating upon traditional cylinder and square shapes, the heat exchangers built by Huber and Fee bring new, complex designs to the field that are impossible with other means of manufacturing.
