Special Issue Information
Three-dimensional printing (also known as additive manufacturing) is a growing technology area that appears poised to change how goods and services are produced in many industries. Using 3D printing, production decisions can be made closer to point of sale or use, products can be customized, and, in some cases, hitherto unmanufacturable (or difficult to manufacture) items can be produced.
Three-dimensional imaging (scanning) is, similarly, growing in use. Scanning can be used to capture objects, limbs and numerous other things for 3D printing, to serve as a template or input to the 3D printing process, for (2D or 3D) display and other purposes.
This Special Issue focuses on the uses of imaging techniques for 3D printing and the relationship between imaging, printed objects, object quality and object design. Papers related to the use of imaging in the product creation or customization process, for quality assurance and other uses relative to 3D printing are welcomed. Additionally of interest are papers regarding the use of 3D imaging for other purposes. Papers considering policy, legal, societal and other implications of 3D printing and scanning are also very relevant to the Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Imaging is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
