Abstract

The status quo of tissue engineering can be summarized as "a random walk through the design space". The existing scaffold designs based on computer-aided design (CAD) and solid freeform fabrication (SFF) are anti-biomorphic and mechanically weak cubic partitions with sharp edges. We introduce minimal surface based unit cells to create biomorphic scaffolds with optimal stress/strain distribution and superior mechanical strength.
