  • Rajneesh Kashyap IIT Mandi



The utilization of Additive Manufacturing (AM) is rapidly progressing in the field of medical science and bio-manufacturing engineering, in which scientists, engineers, and clinicians are contributing equally. Additive manufacturing is the process of manufacturing solid objects with the help of 3D data of the required model by materials fixing or joining, generally by attaching layer upon layer. This paper mainly focuses on the application of AM in biomedical engineering, medicines and medical science. In this regard various case studies related to the replacement of various human organs, tissue engineering, stents used in cardiovascular, designing of biomedical micro-systems, various materials which are used in AM and their application in biomedical science by using different AM techniques.
