Three-dimensional (3D) printing has emerged as a versatile and innovative technology. It holds many opportunities for improving the efficiency of manufacturing processes. With cost-effective manufacturing for high productivity, 3D printing has become a leading manufacturing technology for various applications. The technology enables the fabrication of very complex shapes or geometries with high adjustability and resolution that would otherwise be impossible to construct by hand, including hollow parts or internal truss structures to reduce weight parts. This Special Issue aims to highlight the most popular academic research and industrial and commercial developments of synthetic polymers that have applications in medicine, education, architecture, etc. It also aims to explore emerging challenges and opportunities ranging from new developments of polymeric materials and 3D printing processes to new simulation and design tools and informative applications and case studies. Reports of fundamental scientific investigations are welcome, as are articles correlated to the practical applications of 3D-printed polymers in healthcare and pharmaceuticals. Both experimental and theoretical work is of interest, and theoretical papers should generally include a comparison of predictions with experimental data.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
