• One advantage to 3D printing pills is that it allows precise dosages of active ingredients. Spritam can contain up to 1,000 milligrams of the active ingredient in a single tablet.
  • When Spritam launches in the first quarter of 2016, it won't be harder to take orally -- it dissolves like conventionally produced pills. 
  • Eventually, 3D printing pills could lead to custom "bespoke" drugs for individual patients. Hospitals could conceivably manufacture pills in-house, with specific dosages for specific patients.
