Abstract

Rapid prototyping techniques such as stereolithography allow for building designed tissue engineering scaffolds with high accuracy. In this work, a stereolithography resin based on poly(d,l-lactide) was developed. Biodegradable scaffolds with varying porosity were built from this resin. The scaffolds were analysed by µCT-scanning and compression testing. The porous structures showed excellent mechanical properties in the range of trabecular bone.
