3D Printing (3DP) or additive manufacturing (AM) is known for printing complex shapes, offering design flexibility and customization opportunities for defect-specific patient-matched implants. 3DP or AM can also be used to innovate novel alloys for application-specific needs. The application of 3DP can pave the way towards manufacturing innovative metallic implants, combining structural variations at different length scales and tailored compositions designed for specific biological responses. Specific alloy chemistries can be innovated to enhance biocompatibility for load-bearing implants or add inherent antibacterial resistance to mitigate infections in vivo. Designing new alloy chemistries and structural modifications such as adding porosities can be accomplished in one operation via 3D Printing. This talk will focus on alloy design via 3D Printing for metallic implants from processing, mechanical properties, and biological characterizations in vitro and in vivo.
