Hydrogels have attracted much attention in biomedical applications. A central focus of research has been advancing multicomponent hydrogels and engineering them into various forms and structures to yield desirable features for use in bio-related scenarios. 3D printing has served as a universal technology for processing hydrogels in a customized manner, which particularly suits the fabrication of multicomponent materials and heterogeneous structures. In this chapter, we overview the state-of-the-art of multicomponent hydrogels and their 3D printing for biomedical purposes, covering 3D printing technologies, multicomponent hydrogel materials, and biomedical applications. We have reviewed these aspects with careful classification, illustrated the progress with recent examples, and highlighted prominent trends in the field. This chapter aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the related topics and inspire researchers interested in this multidisciplinary field.
