A new method for 3D printing drugs: melting solidification printing process

Coggiola VN, Real JP, Palma SD | Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine, 4(3), 131–134, (2020) Conventional manufacturing methods for oral administration forms are adapted to produce large batches of tablets of identical dosage form (same geometry, size and dosage). These methods are inflexible or not economically feasible to be adapted to the production of small, customized batches, either for special groups of patients or special geometries [1]. In recent decades, additive manufacturing, more commonly known as 3D printing (3DP), has become a promising tool in many production processes, including the medical and pharmaceutical industry. This technology enables on demand, layer-by-layer...
