The shape of fins must be optimized to maximize heat transfer density and to minimize the pressure drop in the coolant fluid across the heat sink where the space and the materials used for the finned surfaces are constraints. Many shapes exist in the literature ranging from elliptical and cylindrical cylinders, conical shapes to more sharpened surfaces such as rhombus, square sections.
3D heatsinks in Ultiboard
In Ultiboard 14 you can enhance your 3D prototype circuit board by using different types of heat sinks. The following steps and images will walk you through placing database components into your design.
If you enjoy designing circuits or are new to pcb assembling I hope this project gave you great tips to try out for your next software simulation project.
