Created 9/3/2002

This bone replacement material was created in Jennifer Lewis's lab and imaged using the Skyscan 1072 X-ray Microtomography instrument. The sample was sent to MicroPhotonics Inc. by Amy Johnson Wagner as a test sample for the Skyscan instrument which produced an STL file. Daniel Weber printed the resulting STL data file directly to the Stratasys Genisys XS 3D printer in the VMIL. Top views represent two angles of object as seen in AutoGen and bottom pictures are of the object after printing.
