In the last few years, three-dimensional (3D) printing has emerged as a promising alternative for the fabrication of membranes, overcoming some of the limitations associated with conventional phase separation methods. To evaluate the feasibility of 3D printing technologies in membrane fabrication, this chapter is focused on 3D printed membranes for water treatment and purification processes. The fundamentals of 3D printing technology are first introduced along with its commonly used categories, technical features, and examples for membrane fabrication. Then, the detailed applications of 3D printed membranes are summarized, mainly focusing on oil–water separation, wastewater treatment, and desalination. Lastly, we conclude the chapter by highlighting technical challenges and future research directions in this field.
