(a) SEM images of 3DLL-made structures with varied pore areas used to test cell interaction in scaffolds which might be smaller than the cell itself [186]. (b) Supermatrix of nichoids as a cell culture containing 218 matrices at a distance of 30 μm. Such structures show clear capabilities of 3DLL to be employed at mass production of biological scaffolds [73]. (c) Real-time view via setup imaging system depicting the writing of a scaffold in the presence of a living Caenorhabditis elegans showcasing that 3DLL combined with a biopolymer can be completely biofriendly and does not have adverse impact on living organisms [72].
