    Abstract Silk fibroin-typeⅡcollagen scaffold was made by 3D printing technique and freeze-drying method, and its mechanical properties were studied by experiments and theoretical prediction. The results show that the three-dimensional silk fibroin-typeⅡ collagen scaffold has good porosity and water absorption, which is (89.3%+3.26%) and (824.09%+93.05%), respectively. With the given strain value, the stress of scaffold decreases rapidly firstly and then tends to be stable during the stress relaxation. Both initial and instantaneous stresses increase with increase of applied strain value. The creep strains of scaffold with different stress levels show the two stages: the rapidly increasing stage and the second stable… More >

    Additive Manufacturing of Anatomical Models from Computed Tomography Scan Data

    Y. Gür*

    Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics, Vol.11, No.4, pp. 249-258, 2014, DOI:10.3970/mcb.2014.011.249

    Abstract The purpose of the study presented here was to investigate the manufacturability of human anatomical models from Computed Tomography (CT) scan data via a 3D desktop printer which uses fused deposition modelling (FDM) technology. First, Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) CT scan data were converted to 3D Standard Triangle Language (STL) format by using InVaselius digital imaging program. Once this STL file is obtained, a 3D physical version of the anatomical model can be fabricated by a desktop 3D FDM printer. As a case study, a patient’s skull CT scan data was considered, and a tangible version of… More >

    A Layer-Based Mesh Generator and Scheme for 3D Printing Simulation

    Ming-Hsiao Lee1,*, Shou-I Chen2, Wen-Hwa Chen3, Ying Mao3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.120, No.2, pp. 363-374, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.06476

    Abstract 3D Printing, also called Additive Manufacturing, has become a promising manufacturing method to produce parts in various fields as it can produce parts even with very irregular shapes in a relatively shorter process and time. However, during the printing process, some problems could decrease the accuracy and quality of the printed parts, such as warpage due to thermal strains, deformation due to inadequate supports, etc. The finite element method is most commonly adopted to evaluate engineering problems in advance to reduce possible failures; however, the element meshes, needed for analyses, are always irregularly distributed, especially for irregular objects, and cannot… More >
