Three-dimensional (3D) printing (rapid prototyping or additive manufacturing) technologies have received significant attention in various fields over the past several decades. Tissue engineering applications of 3D bioprinting, in particular, have attracted the attention of many researchers. 3D scaffolds produced by the 3D bioprinting of biomaterials (bio-inks) enable the regeneration and restoration of various tissues and organs. These 3D bioprinting techniques are useful for fabricating scaffolds for biomedical and regenerative medicine and tissue engineering applications, permitting rapid manufacture with high-precision and control over size, porosity, and shape. In this review, we introduce a variety of tissue engineering applications to create bones, vascular, skin, cartilage, and neural structures using a variety of 3D bioprinting techniques.
