In this paper, the selective laser melting (SLM) forming method was combined with the requirement of boiling heat transfer for porous structure to study the forming process and boiling heat transfer characteristics of porous structure of G-surface lattice formed by SLM. 316L stainless steel powder was used to rasterize the G-surface structure. Besides, porosity and surface morphology of G-surface lattice were analyzed. Deionized water was used for boiling heat transfer experiment to study the effect of technological parameters on boiling heat transfer enhancement. On this basis, the bubble escape modes in different stages of boiling heat transfer of G-surface lattice were considered, and the delay of the critical heat flux caused by G-surface lattice was explained. This study provides a useful reference for the design of lattice heat cooling structure.
