Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting technology has been utilized as a method to engineer complex tissues and organs. This rapidly growing technology allows for precise placement of multiple types of cells, biomaterials, and biomolecules in spatially predefined locations within 3D structures. Many researchers are focusing on the further development of bioprinting technology and its applications. In this chapter, we introduce the general principles and limitations of widely used bioprinting systems and applications for tissue and organ regeneration. In addition, the current challenges facing the clinical applications of bioprinting technology are addressed.
