Paper Title:
The Use of Rapid Prototyping to Fabricate Liver Tissue Engineering Scaffold
  Abstract

In this papers, the authors described a rapid prototyping method to produce vascularized tissue such liver scaffold for tissue engineering applications. A scaffold with interconnected channel was designed using CAD environment. The data were transferred to a Polyjet 3D Printing machine (Eden 250, Object, Israel) to generate the models. Based on the 3D Printing model, a PDMS (polydimethyl-silicone) mould was created which can be used to cast the biodegradable poly (L-lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA )material. The advantages and limitations of Rapid Prototyping (RP) techniques as well as the future direction of RP development in tissue engineering scaffold fabrication were reviewed.
