Abstract

Fused deposition modelling (FDM) is a form of 3D printing that uses molten polymer filament to create layers, providing exquisite control over an object‘s design. Such control allows properties such as density, geometry and surface area to be manipulated in ways not possible using conventional thermoplastic processing techniques. Here, we utilize this technique to produce model microbicide-loaded vaginal rings using pharmaceutically relevant thermoplastic and biopolymer blends
