New Paper Accepted into 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing
December 7, 2020
The paper titled " High-Resolution Novel Indirect Bioprinting of Low-Viscosity Cell-Laden Hydrogels via Model-Support Bioink Interaction. Bioprinting of unmodified soft extracellular matrix into complex 3D structures has remained challenging to fabricate. Herein, we established a novel process for the printing of low-viscosity hydrogel by using a unique support technique to retain the structural integrity of the support structure. We demonstrated that this process of printing could be used for different types of hydrogel, ranging from fast crosslinking gelatin methacrylate to slow crosslinking collagen type I.

The paper titled " Resolving the porosity-unmelted inclusion dilemma during in-situ alloying of Ti34Nb via Laser Powder Bed Fusion. In this paper, we present a mechanism to achieve simultaneous reduction of inclusion content and porosity in in-situ alloyed Ti34Nb samples. Such achievement marks a significant breakthrough in the process optimization of in-situ alloying with LPBF?. A patent based on the study has also been filed High Speed Homogenization And Pore Mitigation Strategy For In-Situ Alloying Via Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF).
