The article discusses the formation of a new approach to the statutory regulation of 3D printing, an uncommon object of civil matters. Creating a product with the help of such technology not only by an entrepreneur but also by any person, can in practice cause some issues in protecting all participants’ rights during the 3D printing process. 3D printing is regarded as a complex object, so its characteristics are determined. Additionally, possible ways of resolving legislative gaps are proposed, such as: defining the concept of the manufacturer, supplier, seller, and consumer of 3D printed products; developing their rights and responsibilities; establishing quality requirements for 3D printed elements; and adopting clear rules on liability and consumer protection. Due to the widespread use of digital technologies, Russian legislation requires a thorough reconsideration and early reform.
