Dental 3D Printing 

3D printing offers new, more efficient workflows and production options to a wide range of industries and applications, none more so than in dentistry. By its nature, dentistry requires highly predictable and accurate, patient specific models and parts.

High volumes of accurate models can be produced, preventing the need for time consuming and messy traditional methods. Furthermore, where restorations require metal casting, CAD design and printing with our castable resins allows for highly complex and detailed parts, removing the need for time consuming waxing processes. 

We currently provide a quality solution for dental model production and we are developing a comprehensive range of resins to meet a wide range of dental lab production needs. 


Processing Printed Parts

After printing wash or spray parts thoroughly with warm soapy water, isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or mentholated spirits. Spraying is recommended for delicate parts. Ensure there is no remaining uncured resin on the parts before post-exposing. Alternatively, you can use an ultrasonic cleaner filled with warm soapy water. If you have access to compressed air you can dry parts with it to make sure all of the excess resin is cleared out from the smallest holes. 

For Daylight resin: Post expose parts under hot water at approximately 60°C in a clear container (glass or plastic) for 120 minutes in strong light (UV lamp). Turn the object half way through to give it an even exposure to light. 

For DLP and Laser resin: Post expose parts for 30 minuets in a UV light box under water. Turn the object half way through to give it an even exposure to light.

Casting

Items printed with our castable resins, either on our daylight printers, or from UV laser or DLP printers, can be invested and cast in the same way as the traditional lost wax technique. No new, or further equipment is required. Great cost savings through much quicker design and production of castable parts can be made, freeing up time for completion of lab work requiring more traditional methods.  

 

 

 

Recommended Printers

Liquid Crystal Precision 1.5

The precision has the highest accuracy of print and is suitable for detailed items such as castable parts and working models, using the Dental Castable and Dental Model resin (coming soon)

 

 

Liquid Crystal HR2

The HR2 is the best choice of printer to create large numbers of orthodontic models for thermoforming and general study models.

 

 

 

 

Suitable Reins

Daylight Hard Cream
Hard daylight polymers are ideal for making objects with no compressive ability under high force. It exhibits shrinkage. Objects will not blend or deflect when under duress. They exhibit very high tensile shear properties and almost no elongation. 

PRICE

$60.45

Daylight Castable
Castable daylight resin is specially formulated to provide high definition molds. It will leave almost no ash when burnt and create gas evenly as the temperature is increased, avoiding any pressure build up within the casting. It will capture all the details with a very dry surface to provide the ideal finish to your investment mold.  

PRICE 

$67.56

Daylight Precision Castable
Daylight Precision Castable resin is specially formulated to provide high definition molds. It will leave almost no ash when burnt and create gas evenly as the temperature is increased, avoiding any pressure build up within the casting. It will capture all the details with a very dry surface to provide the ideal finish to your investment mold.

Printed Samples 

The Liquid Crystal HR, in combination with our Daylight Hard Cream, is the work horse for creating large quantities of dental models. Up to 22 models can be made in one print. Set the printer running at the end of the day and return the following morning with a full bed of models ideal for busy orthodontic labs. No more messy and time consuming pouring stone models.
