Abstract

The essence of human development is multiscale manufacture; enabling the creation of complex tissue and organs, whose micro, biological and chemical structures seamlessly interact between their dimensional levels. The capabilities of additive
manufacture (AM) to create smart, functionally graded and composite materials [1-3], has expanded the remit of design for AM (DfAM) from geometric homogeneous forms, to encompass compositions, heterogeneity and process parameters. The objective of this research is to use insight gained from human development analogies to inspire DfAM of multiscale materials with the overarching aim of designing medical devices with enhanced functionality.
