The main objective of the research was to understand if the addition of 3D printed plastic parts on top of the cylinder would change the amount of power required to heat the water. In order to do so, we learned the basics of the computer program Inventor to design the clips. Then, we were taught how to print to a 3D printer to have the physical copy of the clips. We also developed a laser alignment system using pieces of wood which allowed us to place the clips on the cylinder at specific intervals.The results showed that adding clips on top of the cylinder changed the heat transfer. There was a difference in the heat plume with and without the clips. We further concluded that the shape of the clip also influenced how the heat plume behaved.
