# PolyChemPrint3 Free and Open Source 3D Printer control software targeted at Research Users (Polymer/Paste/BioPrinting) Written in/for Python 3.3+ (but may work on others)
This software was initially written by Bijal Patel from 2017-2019 as an object-oriented cross-platform tool and successor to PolyPrint, a Perl script.
Within our lab (Diao Group at the University of Illinois http://diao.scs.illinois.edu/Diao_Lab/Home.html) we have succesfully used it to print solutions for organic semiconductors/conductors, polymer photonics, hydrogels, chocolate, etc.
The software is written to be convenient for researchers with features like automatic data logging, parameterized shapes, and convenient macros.
