Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies, technologies that produce three-dimensional parts layer by layer from a material, have the potential to revolutionize the paradigm of manufacturing. Furthermore, in recent years AM technologies have sparked intense interest for developing medical implants, devices and scaffolds. In this context, the main objective of this article is to present an overall view of the trends and the impact of the research carried out in AM technologies for biomedical engineering applications. Therefore, to achieve the main objective, a research trend and scientific impact analysis model has been designed and implemented, which carries out a bibliometric indicator analysis, in general, and a web indicator analysis, in particular. The findings obtained will advance the means of visualizing the state of research in AM for biomedical engineering technologies.
