The 3D-Bioplotter System is a suitable 3D Bioprinter for processing a great variety of biomaterials within the process of Computer Aided Tissue Engineering from 3D CAD models and patient CT data to the physical 3D scaffold with a designed and defined outer form and an open inner structure.
Tissue Engineering and Controlled Drug Release require 3D scaffolds with well defined external and internal structures. The 3D-Bioplotter has the capacity of fabricating scaffolds using the widest range of materials of any singular Rapid Prototyping machine, from soft hydrogels over polymer melts up to hard ceramics and metals.

The EnvisionTEC 3D-Bioplotter® 3D printing technique may be described as the deposition of multiple materials in three dimensions using pressure. Materials range from a viscous paste to a liquid, and are inserted using syringes moving in three dimensions. Air or mechanical pressure is applied to the syringe, which then deposits a strand of material for the length of movement and time the pressure is applied. Parallel strands are plotted in one layer. For the following layer, the direction of the strands is turned over the center of the object, creating a fine mesh with good mechanical properties and mathematically well-defined porosity.
