Biobased 3D printer

The bioink was developed and verified on a custom made 3D printer which was specifically designed for this purpose. The 3D printing experiments with modified natural oil and lignocellulosic biopolymers were performed by optimizing the parameters of technological processes and by validating various properties of the 3D printed parts. In addition the prototyping of bioink and 3D printing technology was validated against the current 3D printing market demands for materials and technologies.
