Additive Manufacturing of Tablets has the potential to simplify the manufacturing of pills (tablets). Instead of a multistep complicated process, a three step process (mixing a powder formulation, printing the tablets in the printer and coating of the tablets) will lead to cost and time savings for customers.

3D printing (3DP) is an increasingly growing manufacturing technology that provides the ability to fabricate structures of precise geometries from a 3D model by deposition of many thin layers. 3DP is nowadays used as a production tool or for rapid prototyping in many areas.

3D printing offers huge potential benefits in pharmaceutical manufacturing, like creating fast and reliable wide dosed dosage forms for clinical use and ability to tailor dose in dosage forms for specific user groups. In order to embrace this new world of opportunities, there is a need for thorough understanding of the powder physics of the materials, processes and techniques involved. Powder bed printing, which has been used to develop Spritam, is arguably the best method for pharmaceutical manufacturing.
Powder physics like, flowability, wettability and consolidation of the blend are critical material attributes for powder bed printing and will impact the tablet functionality like hardness, disintegration and friability. Limited information is available on excipient selection in relationship to functionality in the dosage form in literature.
