Three-dimensional printing has become an interesting tool for the prototyping and fabrication of new devices and microdevices with versatility, quickness, and low cost. The advent of this technology has also allowed the improvement of manufacturing processes, which enable the fabrication of new designs with higher printing accuracy and lower material expenditure, especially when it comes to miniaturized and portable devices. In this context, high-quality devices can be directly produced in research laboratories, bringing scientific research and industry closer. A wide range of 3D techniques, printers, and materials have been explored for this purpose, depending on the application (i.e., biological, medical, chemical, and engineering, among others). Thus, this Special Issue focuses on the design of new 3D printing microdevices for several applications.

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 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. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
