Abstract

3D printers are computerized fabricators that can producecomplex 3D objects using data generated by computer software. The key advantage of constructing objects in this way is the option of creating intricate structures, for example, complex internal cavities, or a combination of multiple materials in a single step.Physicians and pharmacists will be able to change the next dose or drug combinations according topatient’s altering needs reflected by the transmitted data.Several 3D printing technologies have been employed to fabricate solid dosage forms for oral drug delivery and they have evolved with several patent application sand an FDA approved product to be introduced to the market (Spritam(levetiracetam)claims up to 1000 mg dose strength).
