Modifying a 3D printer to print with hydrogels using the FRESH method.

Project elements

  • syringe extruder
  • printhead attachment for needles
  • support bath hydrogel (agarose slurry with CaCl₂)
  • bioink hydrogel (sodium alginate based)
  • lattice g-code generation


works, but not very well, able to print small lattices


printing anime figurines out of my own fibroblasts


  • people who do tissue engineering / regenerative medicine / mammalian cell culture
  • access to a wetlab for mammalian cell culture

hmu if u can help (>ω^)
