Dental Model Orientations
There are three positions in which you can print Dental Models:
Horizontal – Printing horizontally is faster to prepare, faster to print if it is only one Dental Model, and is the most accurate, but it takes up the most space on the build platform.
Angled (10-15°) – Printing at an angle takes more time to prepare and more time to remove the supports during the finishing phase. If you are printing a hollow object and have not added weep holes, you can print the model at an angle to allow resin to escape.
Vertical – Printing vertically is the fastest way to print when there is more than one Dental Model, but it takes the longest time to set up and is the slowest to print if it is only one model.
When should I print a horizontal dental model?
The horizontal orientation (i.e. flat) is the easiest to print because it is easy to set up, it prints quickly, and it usually does not have any supports to remove. It prints accurately enough for clinical applications. For these reasons, most users in labs or clinics print most objects horizontally. More specifically, it is best to horizontally print solid models and models for fit-testing other applications, such as surgical guides or splints.
