3D Printing drug is to design and develop medicine that are suited to an individual. Pharmaceutical product is designed in three dimensions with computer. The three-dimensional printing (3DP) is an advance technique which used to describe 3D products manufactured on a digital platform designing and, in a layer-by-layer fashion of the given pharmaceutical product and object. The 3D Printing technology generally used to formulate the medicines that are tailored to a patient's therapeutic requirements (e.g., dosage, drug and drug release profiles). The aspects associated with 3D printing such as less material wastage, ease of manufacturing, less human involvement, very less post processing and energy efficiency makes the process sustainable for industrial use. 3D Printing technology has appeared as a major technological revolution of the recent years leading to the manufacturing and production of novel medical products and devices in pharmaceutical industry. In 3D Printing the Deposition of medicaments and excipients which may resulting in a shift in perspective in drug configuration, production, and use. These dosage forms address on-demand manufacturing, feasibility, improved size, dosage, and geometry, increased bioavailability with desired drug release profiles, and minimal toxicity or adverse drug reaction issues. However, it may help to address specific issues for various subgroups, such as paediatrics, geriatric, visually impaired, and chronic disease patients. Although several articles highlight the various applications of 3DP techniques. This review highlights the recent dominance role of 3D Printing technology such as including fused deposition modelling (FDM, Stereolithography (SL) and binder jetting has described the advancements in pharmaceuticals formulations with latest technology and enhancing drug therapeutic activity against the particular disease within less of time, show therapeutic approaches to bring in a vast array of useful applications and benefits to human.
