Inexpensive 3D printer for medical applications

Not in that price range 5000 USD might sound much, but it is far outside of the scope of an industrial 3D printer. You ask to print parts that are safe for implantation, so you need a machine that is ...

Inexpensive 3D printer for medical applications

I am not an expert but I think you will find that because 3D printers use a layer by layer construction method, and the boundary between the layers creates grooves along the surface or leaves a rough ...

Can anyone suggest what technology and 3D printing material is most suitable for printing of dental models?

If resolution is your upmost concern then resin 3d printers are the way to go. They use a liquid resin that does not harden until a UV laser is shined through them. Apparently they get ultra high ...

Inexpensive 3D printer for medical applications

Find another medical facility that is doing it, and ask what equipment and filament they use. They may also have a source for medical related models. I would expect medical stuff to be regulated by ...
