3D printing is also known as additive manufacturing technique in which has been used in various commercial fields such as engineering, art, education, and medicine. The applications such as fabrication of tissues and organs, implants, drug delivery, creation surgical models using 3D printer in medical field are expanding. Recently, 3D printing has been developing for produce biomimetic 3D structure using biomaterials containing living cells and that is commonly called "3D bio-printing". The 3D

In the bio-printing, bio-inks (combined hydrogels and living cells) are as important components as bio-printing technologies. The presence of various types of bioinks, however, in this review, we focused on the bio-inks which enables bioprinting efficacy using hydrogels with living cells.
