3D Printing has revolutionized most manufacturing sectors by significantly reducing time to produce elements and minimizing cost related to manufacturing parts with higher complexity. The focus is no longer on low-quality plastic parts that are primarily used for ‘touch and feel’ or design validation, but on functional components of metals, ceramics, polymers,and composites that are now routinely manufactured using 3DP and used in almost all sectors from space to toys to biomedical devices. 3DP-related businesses have grown to multi-billion dollar enterprises around the world, and the growth rate continues to rise for most manufacturing sectors worldwide. However, application of 3DP in biomedical devices is still relatively new and only recently have regulatory bodies in different countries begun to approve 3D-printed devices for human use.

This webinar highlights work presented in the Journal of Materials Research Focus Issue on 3D Printing of Biomaterials. An interactive Q&A was held with each of the speakers following their talks.
