Additive Manufacturing is a process used to join a material and then form it in 3D. This technology has been widely used because it offers freedom in form and has various advantages. One of the additive manufacturing that is currently potentially and rapidly growing is modeling with based metal 3D Printing. Metal-based 3D Print has opened many opportunities so that numerous researches are done and is presently increasing with various variations. The advantage of 3D Printing is that it performs complicated modeling and improves the quality of the products made. One of the complex 3D forms is to create a 3D shape from a heat exchanger. A Heat exchanger is a heat transfer technology widely used in offshore oil, natural gas, aircraft, beverage industry, and power generation. Its use is highly dependent on the fluid and the shape of the heat exchanger. To achieve a higher heat transfer coefficient, a larger surface area of the heat exchanger is required. A large surface area will be challenging to form it using conventional technology. For this reason, 3D Print Design is one solution that breaks limitations over the heat transfer technology. The current study aims to create a summary for additive manufacturing using the 3D Print method, 3D Prints to produce heat exchangers, and the application of 3D Print Heat Exchangers in various fields.
