3D Printing in Medical Applications

Ananda Babu.

3D Printing promises to develop advanced biomedical tools utilizing patient specific anatomical
details in compliance with computer design. From the beginning, 3D Printing has progressively developed to
create one-of - a-kind equipment, implants, diagnostic platforms, and scaffolds for tissue engineering and systems
for drug delivery. Because of the recent public explosion and the access to affordable printers, there is new interest
in combining stem cells with personalized 3D scaffolds for renewable medicine. There are several technological
limitations to be acknowledged prior to 3D Printing in the routine process of regenerating of complex tissues (e.g.,
bone, cartilage, vessels, muscles, craniomexillo-facial complexes) and complex 3D micro-architectural organs
(e.g. lymphoid organs, liver). In this paper, the major materials and technological advances for each of the common
3D printing technologies (Three Dimensional Printing, selective laser sintering, fused deposition modelling,
Stereo-lithography, and 3D Direct-Write /Plotting/ Bioprinting) are described over the last five years. For example,
advancement in tissue engineering is demonstrated and main constraints are established to inspire further research
in order to facilitate this exciting area of advanced development

Key words: Bioprinting, 3D Printing, Fused deposition modelling, Stereolithography, Tissue engineering
