Abstract: In the modern chemistry laboratory, three-dimensional (3D) printing is becoming the most important part over time. This technique helps chemists with the potential to design, print, and prototype functional devices that combine analytical and/or catalytic functionalities and as well as to print general laboratory teaching and hardware aids. Although the availability of 3D printers has increased substantially, some principles of design and considerations of material requirements to be estimated by weight before employing this type of technology in the laboratories of chemistry. Also, a fixed level of expertise requires to be obtained to utilize CAD (computer-aided design), software for printing, and the hardware specialist related to the instrumentation of higher-end. Nevertheless, the recent development in this area is providing, with these technologies of printing rendering various advantages over the general methods of production. This paper reviews various applications and advances of this technology in the field of chemical, biological and pharmaceutical.
