Research Highlight from the BIOFAB Degree – Tube Printing

A continuous printing path is required when using the melt electrowriting technology, which needs extra planning when a cylindrical collector is required. Erin McColl, during her overseas research stay at the University of Würzburg, used mathematics to calculate the printing path onto a cylinder, so that fibers can accurately stack upon each other.

As reported in the journal “Materials and Design“, complex tubes can be fabricated this way, and Erin established an intuitive open-access website that automatically generates G-code so that the melt electrowriting of tubes can be established. The open access research paper  “Design and fabrication of melt electrowritten tubes using intuitive software” can be found here. The website for calculating the printing paths can be found at

University of Würzburg: Applications for Commencement in October 2018. (In German) Closes on 15th July 2018. Note that the EU funding concludes this year, and we are working on sponsorships to fund the overseas portion of the degree. Note that self-funding while in Australia is an option (the overseas student fee is still waived).

Requirements for 10 month Australian Research Placement (Double-Degree):

  • 80ECTS in Chemistry Topics as an Undergraduate Student
  • Ability to speak German

Requirements for Würzburg-based Biofabrication (Single Degree):

  • 80ECTS  in Chemistry Topics as an Undergraduate Student
  • Ability to speak German

For applicants without 80ECTS Chemistry, we suggest taking the Masters Degree in Functional Materials. This includes classes in Biofabrication and opportunity to perform a Masters Thesis in 3D printing or biofabrication. Requirements include:

  • Ability to Speak German

More information on the Functional Materials Masters Degree can be found here.

The International Double Masters Degree in Biofabrication is funded by both the European Commission and the Australian Governments via the Encounter Program (#2013/3137 001-001 “BIOFAB).

University of Utrecht: Applications for 2018 closed on 1st April. Please refer to for further information.

Bioprinting: 3D Printing Body Parts


You may be aware of 3D printing or have seen low-cost 3D printers that can create plastic toys, replicas and objects of your own design. But did you know that 3D printing is also enabling life-saving and transforming medical procedures, which were unthinkable a few years ago? The world of medicine and biomaterials has collided with advances in 3D printing, creating a new clinical paradigm in biomedicine: 3D bioprinting. This online course tells the story of this revolution, introducing you to commonly used biomaterials and bioprinting techniques. Register at:
