They should be able to print cylinders with gyroid infill air or water/oil cooling channels instead of flat slab fins.

Many 3D printing enthusiasts have carried out their own studies and testing, all pointing towards a similar result: Gyroid infill is stronger and has faster printing times than other infill patterns.

It’s been said that this infill pattern was inspired by a 2017 MIT study, where researchers designed one of the strongest and lightest materials available using graphene. The strength of the object was not only due to its material, but also its gyroidal shape. In fact, they found it was the shape that was more responsible for its strength than the material.
