This study shows how to design and preclinically evaluate the biofabricated scaffolds for othopeadic applications using experimental and numerical methods. Biodegradable scaffolds, with honeycomb-like pattern, fully interconnected channel network, and controllable porosity, were fabricated in the form of layers of directionally aligned microfibres deposited via computer-controlled extrusion process. The influence of the applied biomaterials and internal architecture of the scaffolds on their mechanical and biological properties was evaluated based on experimental results. Moreover, the novel numerical methods were developed to predict mechanical and biological performances of the tissue engineering constructs taking into account their degradation conditions and cell growth. The obtained results have confirmed the usefulness of the presented experimental and numerical approaches in development of new constructs for tissue engineering.
