Passively cooled computer box for Vectioneer

Description

Optimising the cooling of a control box through passive cooling.

Vectioneer is a company that provides clients with control software for various machinery, from manufacturing lines to aircraft simulators. The company created a universal control box, a computer that could run the program for the designated machine no matter the purpose. The box heats up while running and this affects the processing power of the computer, as well as the electronics installed around the box and the safety.
