scafSLICR: A MATLAB-based slicing algorithm to enable 3D-printing of tissue engineering scaffolds with heterogeneous porous microarchitecture

Fig 6

3D-printed anatomically shaped scaffolds with heterogeneous pore structures.

Anatomic shapes from the craniofacial skeleton were labeled with different design regions, sliced with scafSLICR, and 3D-printed. (A) Zygomatic arch patterned linearly left-to-right. (B) Hemi-mandible patterned with shells from exterior to interior. (C) Orbital midface complex patterned according to average shape thickness. Scale bar = 1cm.
