Paper Abstract

Three dimensional structures made of sugar based materials can be utilized in tissue engineering since sugar serves as a nutrient for growing cells. It can also be applied in other areas of life like food industry or art. Following paper describes preparation of a material based on commonly used sucrose and proteins contained in chicken eggs. Furthermore a method of additive manufacturing with use of the mentioned material is also described. Method is based on a direct write 3D printing technology and was implemented by utilizing a low cost commercial 3D printer alongside with an industrial glue dispenser. The printed parts are then dried using UV light or a common oven and presented results are discussed.
