Why you should download

Dental milling centers and laboratories have been casting and pressing metal and ceramic parts for over ten years, but existing CNC and 3D printing solutions are often costly and difficult to use.

This application guide details the simplified process of casting and pressing dental crowns, bridges, and frames using the Formlabs desktop stereolithography 3D printer and Castable Wax Resin, from start to finish.

Tested at length by dental technicians, Formlabs Castable Wax Resin provides accurate, sealed margins and contains 20% wax for reliable casting with clean burnout. Printed patterns are strong enough to handle with no post-cure required, allowing for a faster, simpler workflow.

  • The digital workflow to create dental crowns, bridges, and frames, from scanning to casting and pressing
  • Tips and best practices throughout the process to achieve a professional final product
  • The essential tools you need to create crowns, bridges, and frames with 3D printing
