Theoretically, any material – solid or liquid – can be fused into any shape, just like a sculpture. But the process is time-consuming and expensive, depending on the size, material and complexity of the model. Why bother, then, to use 3D technology if it takes a few hours to print a cup, when dozens can be produced in factories in far lesser time?

3D bioprinting is not new: It began in the mid-1990s. Recently, many bioprinting efforts talk about the technology as a way to speed up the government requirements for getting a new drug to market.
