Abstract

A new generation of sophisticated tissue engineering scaffolds are developed using the periodicity of trigonometric equations to generate triply periodic minimal surfaces (TPMS). TPMS architectures display minimal surface energy that induce typical pore features and surface curvatures. Here we described a series of TPMS geometries and developed a procedure to build such scaffolds by stereolithography using biocompatible and biodegradable photosensitive resins.
