Properties of porous structures prepared by stereolithography using a polylactide resin
Melchels, F.P.W., Grijpma, D.W., & Feijen, J. (2008) Properties of porous structures prepared by stereolithography using a polylactide resin.

Rapid prototyping techniques such as stereolithography allow for building designed tissue engineering scaffolds with high accuracy. In this work, a stereolithography resin based on poly(D,L-lactide) was developed. Biodegradable scaffolds with varying porosity were built from this resin. The scaffolds were analysed by μCT-scanning and compression testing. The porous structures showed excellent mechanical properties in the range of trabecular bone.
