Multifactor Optimization for Development of Biocompatible and Biodegradable Feed Stock Filament of Fused Deposition Modeling

Multifactor Optimization for Development of Biocompatible and Biodegradable Feed Stock Filament... In this research work, multifactor optimization for the development of biocompatible and biodegradable composite material-based feed stock filament of fused deposition modeling (FDM) has been reported. The polylactic acid (PLA) has been selected as a polymer matrix with hydroxyapatite (HAp) and chitosan (CS) as filler for potential use in medical applications. The feedstock filament of PLA–HAp–CS can be used directly on FDM open-source 3D printer (without change in any hardware or software of system). The optimization results are supported by mechanical tensile testing, thermal analysis and scanning electron microscope-based photomicrographs. Finally, the feasibility of fabrication of functional prototypes for medical applications by using in-house prepared feedstock filament on the FDM has been ascertained. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of The Institution of Engineers (India): Series E Springer Journals

Abstract

In this research work, multifactor optimization for the development of biocompatible and biodegradable composite material-based feed stock filament of fused deposition modeling (FDM) has been reported. The polylactic acid (PLA) has been selected as a polymer matrix with hydroxyapatite (HAp) and chitosan (CS) as filler for potential use in medical applications. The feedstock filament of PLA–HAp–CS can be used directly on FDM open-source 3D printer (without change in any hardware or software of system). The optimization results are supported by mechanical tensile testing, thermal analysis and scanning electron microscope-based photomicrographs. Finally, the feasibility of fabrication of functional prototypes for medical applications by using in-house prepared feedstock filament on the FDM has been ascertained.
