Rapid prototyping (RP) is a relatively new technology that produces physical models by selectively solidifying UV-sensitive liquid resin using a laser beam. The technology has gained a great amount of attention, particularly in oral and maxillofacial surgery. An important issue in RP applications in this field is how to obtain RP models of the required accuracy. We investigated errors generated during the production of medical RP models, and identified the factors that caused dimensional errors… CONTINUE READING
