How to Download Heat Sink Drawings and 3D Models in Aavid Genie

Aavid Genie can generate heat sink drawings and 3D models of the heat sink you simulated in a project. Drawings and 3D models are available for immediate download after simulation and come in .dxf and .stl files respectively. Solution Reports can be downloaded after simulation as well. 




Downloading Aavid Genie Heat Sink Models Step by Step

After you have simulated your heat sink and reviewed your results, Aavid Genie presents you with several options for Next Steps in your project. One of those options is to Download Project/Solution Files.



These download options include:

Solution Report: A summary of your results and all your simulated conditions

Project File: The full heat sink design and parameters that you can use in the complete Aavid SmartCFD software

3D Printable File: The 3D model of the heat sink you simulated

2D CAD Drawing: A 2D drawing of the heat sink profile you simulated



By clicking either the 3D or 2D download options, you will be prompted to confirm the download of the files.




Aavid Genie Heat Sink Drawings

Aavid Genie heat sink drawings are simple but have enough detail for your in-house machinist to fabricate a prototype quickly for you to use in testing. Dimensions not depicted on the profile drawing are listed in the notes above the title block. These heat sink drawings come in .DXF format and can be opened by a variety of CAD packages. Keep the file for your records and feel free to add any notes you need or contact Aavid Engineering for more guidance.

Aavid Genie Heat Sink Models

Aavid Genie generates a simple 3D model that utilizes the heat sink profile and length that you used in your simulation. The Genie produces 3D models in a .STL format. Feel free to use it in your product assembly files to complete your product design.

Sharing Heat Sink Models and Re-simulation

Previously simulated heat sink design projects whose drawings retain their solution and files when shared with another Aavid Genie user.

Keep in mind that these files are unique for each simulation, so you will need to redownload the heat sink drawing and model downloads for every separate simulation. In other words, if you simulate the same project under 5 different sets of conditions, each simulation will have its own set of downloads.
