Abstract

Tissue engineering is a field that allows us to look into the future for regenerative medicine. It may become possible to regenerate or replace damaged tissues with laboratory- grown parts such as bone, cartilage, blood vessels and skin using this technology. It essentially tries to create friendly and conducive environment for controlled growth of cells with the help of connective tissues and collagenous scaffolds. Additive Manufacturing method with its ability to add material at desired location to make a component is best suited for creating such a scheme for cell culture. It has a unique ability to precisely control of the matrix architecture like size, shape, inter connectivity, branching, geometry and orientation. Due to these reasons, Additive Manufacturing is increasingly becoming a powerful tool for the realization of tissue engineering applications.
