The number of COVID-19 patients is on the rise worldwide; given the high number of patients and the disruption of the production network; this has created a shortage of clinical parts and personal protective equipment; the 3D printing has endorsed its role in this area. 3D printing continues to provide healthcare workers with missing equipment for example, millions of face shields, face veils, valves, nasopharyngeal swabs and more have been made using 3D printing, in this article, we will share the contribution and experience of the 3D printing sector in the medical sector and a survey has been carried out of the studies to give a global view on the way and pace of use of this technology in the World during this health crisis.
