    The cooling air to the printer nozzle is a critical component of any 3D printer. To make a large-scale 3D printer, the airflow directed at the nozzle is even more important. The airflow needs to effectively cool the molten material and also not move it with too much side force. This means we need efficient, concentric airflow directed just below the nozzle. In this case study, we’ll show the process of using Autodesk Fusion 360 Generative Fluid Path to create the ideal air ducting for the printer head nozzle.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn about starting a generative fluid path study.
    • Learn about the concepts of all the setup items, including preserves, obstacles, load conditions, and design objectives.
    • Gain a detailed understanding of the explore environment.
    • Learn how to take a generative fluid path outcome and create a physical part of the encasing volume.
