dental casts

Recommended Posts

I depends on how accurate such a cast should turn out. For sure you can print it, but if it has the quality you would want ist hard to say without sample. You can try and post a close-up picture of a cast produced in another way you are happy with..

I don't think a .4mm nozzle will let you get to the resolution you need. I recommend you look at the b9creator. That should have good enough resolution for dental casts.

Sorry I missed the word "casts". You should still though check the regulations - no idea if the dental industry is happy with sticking any old plastic into a patient's mouth. You can get customised filament - we have just taken delivery of a filament where we requested a 3% mix with an anti-microbial additive which prevents/mitigates against the transfer of nasties from one person's skin to another - addmaster.co.uk
