  • 3-D printed sugar scaffolds offer sweet solution for tissue engineering, device manufacturing

    Freeform printing allows the researchers to make intricate structures, such as this model of a heart, that could not be made with traditional layer-by-layer 3-D printing. The structures could be used as scaffolds for tissue engineering or device manufacturing.
