Purpose -- Processing solid dispersion filament feedstock materials by Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) have shown to facilitate control of drug release profiles through micro-structure design. The mechanical and rheological properties of many feedstock materials, particularly immediate release polymers, are not suitable for processing in a conventional FDM 3D printer. This study shows the operational space and performance of a novel non-filament based FDM printer, overcoming these material-based limitations.

Conclusions -- Operational limits, in terms of rheological properties of formulations, have been identified for this novel non-filament FDM printer. Repeatability of tablet prints showed good uniformity of mass, complying with pharmacopeial specifications for oral solid dose forms.
