As the techniques of additive manufacturing (better known as 3-D printing) develop, bioengineers have been increasingly interested in the possibility of using it to manufacture replacement organs out of cultured cells, which could considerably ease pressures on demand for transplant organs, and also reduce the risk of rejection if the patient’s own cells are used as the raw material.

A major roadblock in development of these techniques has been the production of the network
