Special Issue Information
3D printing belongs to the emerging technologies of our time. While previously mostly used for rapid prototyping, the technology has long entered rapid production, especially for complicated objects or small lot sizes. Most recently, new 3D printing technologies enable printing smallest features on micro- or even nano-scales. At the same time, well-known problems like the waviness of fused deposition modeling (FDM) printed parts, the missing long-term stability of some typical printing materials or reduced mechanical properties of 3D printed objects still exist.
This special issue focusses on all topics dealing with 3D printing of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), such as new or advanced features enabled by 3D printing as compared to conventional technologies, but also the still existent challenges of using 3D printing technologies for MEMS and new approaches how to overcome them.

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. Micromachines 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 2000 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.
