Robocasting is a freeform fabrication method that involves the rapid prototyping of various materials for hard tissue and bone replacement. A design was completed of both a standard bone replacement material with appropriate porous and structural properties as well as a customized bone replacement for the ball and stem of a hip using multiple materials to achieve desired properties. Market assessments and available funding possibilities were evaluated to make recommendations for research at WPI's future Gateway Park and Bioengineering Institute.
