VOLCO: a predictive model for 3D printed microarchitecture (2018)
Journal Article
Gleadall, A., Ashcroft, I., & Segal, J. (in press). VOLCO: a predictive model for 3D printed microarchitecture. Additive Manufacturing, 21, doi:10.1016/j.addma.2018.04.004. ISSN 2214-7810

Extrusion-based 3D printing is widely used for porous scaffolds in which polymer filaments are extruded in the form of log-pile structures. These structures are typically designed with the assumption that filaments have a continuous cylindrical profi... Read More

Characterisation of the surface geometry of 3D printed scaffolds for cell infiltration and surgical suturing (2016)
Journal Article
Ruiz-Cantu, L., Gleadall, A., Faris, C., Segal, J., Shakesheff, K. M., & Yang, J. (2016). Characterisation of the surface geometry of 3D printed scaffolds for cell infiltration and surgical suturing. Biofabrication, 8(1), doi:10.1088/1758-5090/8/1/015016. ISSN 1758-5082

3D printing is of great interest for tissue engineering scaffolds due to the ability to form complex geometries and control internal structures, including porosity and pore size. The porous structure of scaffolds plays an important role in cell ingro... Read More
