Accuracy of 3D printed models – Presented by Sohaib Shujaat, KU Leuven

Printing has revolutionized the dental industry during the past decade and become an integral part of digital dentistry. However, little is known about the accuracy of the 3D printed models.

The aim of the presentation is to evaluate the objective accuracy of 3D printed models using various materials and printers. I will share the findings related to the accuracy of 3D printed models of teeth, impacted third molars, cortical and medullary bone.

This will provide a guidance for creating a exact replica of dental and bone anatomy, which can be used in future for training in dentistry and simulation of accurate dental and surgical workflow.
