Calcium magnesium silicates (CMS) represent a class of minerals with diverse applications in fields ranging from geology to materials science. With the advent of additive manufacturing technologies, particularly 3D printing, novel opportunities have emerged for the synthesis and utilization of CMS-based materials. In this mini-review, we provide a thorough overview of recent advancements in the 3D printing of CMS compounds, including diopside (DPS), bredigite (BR), and akermanite (AKT). We discuss the synthesis methods, properties, and potential applications of 3D-printed CMS materials, with a focus on their role in biomedical applications. Furthermore, we highlight challenges and prospects in the field, emphasizing the importance of continued research and innovation in harnessing the full potential of 3D-printed CMS materials.
