Can I process a denture on a 3D printed model in the microwave?

This is our first case where we had outsourced a digital impression to be 3D printed. We are now at the point that we need to process the denture. We, generally, microwave process our acrylic, but we are unsure if that will affect the model. Can you give us a sure answer so we can proceed? Thanks!

I'm with RKM.
On top of questions about proper separator fluids, I have high doubt the ptinted model would not deform under the heat and pressure espedially since it is most probably a hollow model.

We tried to process onto a printed model and the acrylic stuck to the model. Fortunately it was just a test we were trying and not a real case.

I'm guessing you can't microwave on a printed model, too many variables.

As easy as NO.
