Then there are the 13 Archimedean solids (PolyhedronData [ "Archimedean"]; the cuboctahedron, icosidodecahedron, truncated cube, etc.), constructed by requiring the same configuration at each vertex, but allowing more than one kind of regular face.
• Through engineered architecture, it is Human Vertebral Bioreactor possible to increase the overall Trabecular Bone Culturing strength of the construct with a minimal μCT Assembly increase in the stiffness as seen in the rhombitruncated cuboctahedron. μComputed Scaffold • Using a combinatory approach to Tomography Generation scaffold design can result in optimized structural properties while maintaining physiologically important parameters.
