Printer: Objet 500
Print Time: 22 hours
Material: MED 610

These are cell structures that replicate a kidneys tubular system. These structures were printed using MED610, and SUP705. MED610 is one of the few 3D printing resins that has been proven to be bio-compatible. We have successfully cultivated cells in these with out any side effects. The print job was relatively quick for having all the print bed occupied. That is because the Objet500 compromises speed on the z-axis. The structures shown still have support material. For these complex structures the best way to remove the support material is by placing the parts in a sodium hydroxide, sodium metasilicate, and water solution, and placing it in a sonicator.
