Research Topic


Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is a promising 3D printing technique in pharmaceutical and medical manufacturing. Potential products are patient-specific implants and personalized drug dosage forms. In this work, the applicability of FDM in this field is investigated.


Additive manufacturing (AM) – also known as 3D-printing – allows the fabrication of complex geometries. FDM is a specific AM methods, in which a thermoplastic polymer is plasticized, extruded through a heated nozzle and deposited on a construction platform. Based on this manufacturing method, three-dimensional geometries are fabricated layer-by-layer. However, there are still multiple factors that limit the application of FDM printers as a manufacturing method. Several of these factors, such as the missing regulatory approval concept and the influence of different printing parameters on product properties are investigated in this work.
