3D printing resolution

What is resolution in means of 3D printing? Is there a difference in definition of resolution between regular 3D printers and bioprinters?

  • I don't think there is a difference in resolution at the fundamental level. It is the smallest unit you can move/dispense material in a particular dimension. Of course since the materials used for bioprinting is different from usual 3D printing, the property of the material itself(viscosity etc) can determine the accuracy as well. This would mean using different nozzles and pressure profiles, print speed etc to determine a fine print. But I guess that can be said about other forms of 3D printing as well.
