  1. It’s great that there’s a new resin for dentists to use for 3D printing the materials they need. Using this new resin to allow dental professionals to move from a 3D model directly to a printed surgical guide would make this process more efficient. I hope that doing this can also make 3D printed materials more affordable since it would cut down the process that’s used for making these printed items for dentistry.
