Key Takeaway: An open-source algorithm to make 3D printing more accurate
Research Topics: scaffold
Jernej Vajda et al present an iterative optimization algorithm to improve the accuracy and precision of bioprinting that is versatile and suitable for a wide range of 3D printing applications. Low-cost 3D printers have become widely available, but finding optimum parameters for their use can be challenging and costly. The algorithm is compatible with most equipment available in biological research and reduces the time and cost necessary for the optimization of 3D printing for a new material. The code required to run the algorithm is freely available through a public GitHub repository and will continue to be updated.
