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

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
