Additive manufacturing covers a number of fashionable technologies that attract the interest of researchers in biomaterials and tissue engineering. Additive manufacturing applied to regenerative medicine covers two main areas: 3D printing and biofabrication. If 3D printing has penetrated the world of regenerative medicine, bioassembly and bioimprinting are still in their infancy. The objective of this paper is to make a non-exhaustive review of these different complementary aspects of additive manufacturing in restorative and regenerative medicine or for tissue engineering.
