In the medical field, Biomaterials along with the contribution of the tissue engineering, makes significant contributions to the quality of life. The form and the proper fit of the medical devices developed (artificial tissues, implants, et cetera) and placed in the human body are as important as their materials because while the tissue is regenerating and when the implant gets covered with the newly formed tissue large gaps between the tissue and the implants are not desirable. If attention is not paid to this, tissue regeneration may not take place satisfactorily or the implant may not be securely fitted at the site of application. One of the newly developed technologies is three dimentional (3D) printing or additive manufacturing and is being rapidly adapted to the biomaterials field with just the correct approach to prevent this potential problem because the inner and outer architecture of the 3D printed products mimic the original very accurately. Through this method the life cycle of the patients are not disturbed by problems arising from product misfits. In this review information along with examples from dental, orthopedic and ophthalmologic fields are presented.
