Dental Model Material Details


General Information

Dental Model Resin is a specialized photopolymer resin designed for use in Stereolithography 3D printing (SLA) with Formlabs printers. This resin is tailored to meet the unique requirements of dental applications, offering a range of properties suitable for creating dental models and prototypes. Dental Model Resin is well-regarded for its accuracy, precision, and biocompatibility, making it an excellent choice for dental professionals. However, it's important to consider its specific characteristics and limitations.

Dental Model Resin Material Highlights:

  • Exceptional Detail Reproduction: Dental Model Resin excels at reproducing fine details and intricate dental structures, ensuring precise and accurate dental models.
  • High Precision: It offers outstanding dimensional accuracy, enabling the creation of dental models that closely mimic real teeth and oral structures.
  • Biocompatible: This resin is biocompatible, making it suitable for dental applications that come into contact with oral tissues.
  • Smooth Surface Finish: Dental models printed with this resin typically exhibit a smooth surface finish, enhancing their appearance and usability.

Dental Model Resin Material Considerations:

  • UV Sensitivity: Dental Model Resin may be sensitive to prolonged UV exposure, so it's not recommended for outdoor or sunlight-exposed applications.
  • Post-Processing Requirements: Achieving the highest level of precision and aesthetics may require specific post-processing steps, such as polishing or clear coating.
  • Manual Support Removal: Like other SLA materials, Dental Model Resin may require manual support removal, which can be time-consuming for complex dental models.
