Dispenser printing provides a method to produce 2D and 3D patterns from basically any liquid phase material. Dispensing considered here is a form of extrusion of material through a narrow diameter needle. An advantage of dispensing technique over conventional printing techniques is the avoidance of complicated ink formulation, which generally requires hazardous organic solvents that may be harmful to biological objects. Dispensing also allows materials with rather different properties such as different viscosity to be printed in the same process. Combining the dispensing printing of liquid phase materials and 3D printing of solid materials, complex structures with new functional properties can be fabricated, which is very challenging if not impossible using conventional manufacturing techniques.
