Abstract

Tissue engineering has shown a need for three-dimensional (3D) tissue scaffolds for cell growth as an improvement over slab scaffolds. We present a novel scaffold design and manufacturing process, utilizing biomorphic scaffold shapes based on computational models and defined by optimal surface area to volume ratios. Using these models and a low-cost 3D printer, we developed fractal-based biocompatible 3D tissue scaffolds that supported cell proliferation.
