This paper reports the techniques of additive manufacturing method applied using rapid prototyping technique for optimized sintered wick structured heat pipe. The structural design of the heat pipe was executed using CATIA V5 computer aided design software. Upon designing, finite element analysis conducted to evaluate performance of heat pipe were evaluated using ANSYS R19 computer aided manufacturing software. The physical properties of heat pipe evaluated according to physical parameters such as Temperature, Pressure and Velocity. Finally, the heat pipe was printed using 3-Dimensional printer. The results obtained achieved the objectives. A low-cost solution identified for the problem stated.
