3D-printed scaffolds with uniform isotropic pores.

(A) Side-by-side comparison of scaffold previews (top row) and 3D-printed scaffolds (bottom row) for different patterns of pore size and porosity. (B, C) Assessments of print fidelity of pore diameter and strut width to design from top and side views. (D) Observed gravimetric porosity and expected design values. (E) Compressive modulus varies with porosity.
