DLP Printing

0025This project focuses on the development of a bioprinting platform utilizing a custom-built DLP (digital light projection) 3D printer. The primary accomplishment of the work to date are:
• development and modification to the printer itself
• engineering and testing of bio-compatible photopolymers
• development of DLP tools in Xylinus, a 3D printer control platform in Rhino/Grasshopper
• designing, printing,and analyzing of 3D scaffolds

Nascent work has been done regarding:
• testing cytotoxicity and bacterial biofilm formation with the resultant 3D prints
• designing a bioreactor and planning post-print cell growth processes

The rough lab notes for this work are open and available at this stream.
