Dental 3D-printing on the UniFormation GKtwo 8K.

As everybody knows, the last years there has been a significant improvement in resin desktop 3D-pritners. Main drivers were the switch to monochrome screens and the availability of larger LCD screens with small pixels. Besides that, extra options for shrinkage and off-set compensation in software like Chitubox, VoxelDance Tango and Lychee paved the way for more precise applications. As resin shrinks during printing, it is important to compensate for that to get reliable and accurate models. With the GKTwo we have optimized Liqcreate Dental Model Pro Grey resin.

How accurate is the Uniformation GKTwo printer? Well if you dial in the printing, shrinkage and offset parameters, this printer can be quite accurate. These settings were found to be the best:

This resulted in an accuracy measurements:

For an entry level resin 3d-printer that is not bad at all!

Then there are these more complicated cases with inserts / dies. in the Chitubox software there is a setting to change how tight these dies are. we have set them to medium and with the Tolerance compensation (beta) in the advanced tab. at value “a” you can change this. do you want it to be more loose, go more negative in steps of -0,01mm. are the dies too loose, go more positive in steps of +0,01mm until you find the right fit for you.
