    Heat Exchangers and 3D Printing

    Congratulations on your great work!A couple of years ago, I myself designed an air to air heat exchanger that was supposed to be 3D printed and be the core of an HRV system for small spaces. My company, together with a fellow company were thinking to set up a crowdfunding campaign, in order to develop a customisable commercial solution. We were focusing on using standard size (10 of 15 cm), circular diameter pipes with insulation material encasing the heat exchanger and computer fans for moving the air (like you did). We were thinking we could achieve air flow values of 30 m3/hour. Unfortunately, I was then told that my heat exchanger design would cost nearly 500 euros to print, even in polymer. That caused us to cancel the initiative. Since our company has been working on engineering p...

    Congratulations on your great work!A couple of years ago, I myself designed an air to air heat exchanger that was supposed to be 3D printed and be the core of an HRV system for small spaces. My company, together with a fellow company were thinking to set up a crowdfunding campaign, in order to develop a customisable commercial solution. We were focusing on using standard size (10 of 15 cm), circular diameter pipes with insulation material encasing the heat exchanger and computer fans for moving the air (like you did). We were thinking we could achieve air flow values of 30 m3/hour. Unfortunately, I was then told that my heat exchanger design would cost nearly 500 euros to print, even in polymer. That caused us to cancel the initiative. Since our company has been working on engineering projects to improve the indoor environmet, I would be fascinating to be able to provide a customizable solution with a cost of, let's say, 100 euros. I hope that we will get the opportunity to set up this project again in the future. Any ideas?
