OpenFOAM simulations of stress mitigation strategies in embedded 3D bioprinting

Metadata Updated: July 29, 2022

In embedded 3D printing, a nozzle is embedded into a support bath and extrudes filaments or droplets into the bath. Embedded 3D printing is particularly useful for bioprinting, wherein a cell-laden ink is extruded through the nozzle. Using OpenFOAM, we simulated the extrusion of filaments and droplets into a moving bath. This dataset focuses on the effect of common cell protection strategies on the extrusion of single lines and stresses imposed on cells. OpenFOAM is an open source computational fluid dynamics solver. This work used OpenFOAM 8 on a computing cluster. OpenFOAM input files were generated using Python 3.7. Output files were analyzed using Paraview 5.8.0 and Python 3.7. Associated code can be found on Github:, doi:10.18434/mds2-2602 This data is described in: Friedrich, L. M., Gunther, R. T., & Seppala, J. E. (2022). Simulated stress mitigation strategies in embedded 3D bioprinting, submitted for publication.
