Extrusion-based bio-mimetic shape Hamiltonian tool path for scaffolds design

When 3D printing bone scaffold, the complicated bone porous structure is problematic for manufacturing. Modern manufacturing technique, 3D printing, has many benefit on bone scaffold but also possess some limits that need to be treated. This research developed unique method “swap theory” in order to optimize the number of 3D printing path and turning points. In the meantime, this method try to maintain the original biomimetic geometric structure.
