Unformatted text preview: ment to this fabrication method. Landers et al compared 3DP and 3D bioplotting in manufacturing biodegradable polyurethane scaffolds using aliphatic polyurethanes based on lysine ethyl ester diisocyanate and isophorone diisocyanate [28]. Geng et al present a technique based on 3DP, referred to as dual dispensing for the design and fabrication of scaffolds [29]. Ang et al used the RP robotic dispensing system demonstrated its potential in fabricating 3D scaffolds with regular and reproducible macropore architecture [30]. 3.3 Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) In comparison with the three- dimensional printing method, the fused deposition modeling method does not require any organic binder solvent and offers ease and flexibility in material handling and processing [26]. The FDM uses a small temperature controlled extruder to force out a thermoplastic filament material and deposit the semi- molten polymer onto a platform in a layer- by- layer process. The FDM process operates by moving the extrusion head in the x- and y- axis while the platform lowers in the z- axis for each layer to form [12]. The head extrudes the semiliquid state thermoplastic polymer in ultrathin layers precisely into place. The nozzle tip should be Review of Extrusion Based Rapid Prototyping Technologies for Bone Tissue Engineering Applications Rapid Prototyping Advantages Disadvantages Technologies 3 Dimensional Printing Low Costs, No Toxic Weak Bonding between Components, Fast powder particles, Rough Processing, Broad Surface, Post- Processing Material Range, No (like depowdering) is Support Structure Needed difficult due to weak bonding between particles Fused...
