We have big plans for 2019 and digital dentures; webinars, live education, videos, expanded shades, and certification in more countries.

3D printed dentures are one of the first truly economical ways in which people outside of fabrication industries will come to use and interact with 3D printed parts on a day to day basis. Introducing new Digital Dentures from Formlabs, now shipping in the US.

How do they do on a drop test?
Really well if the base is 2 mm+ in thickness, we had some early testing with very thin bases that didn't hold up in certain tests. Page 6 of the application guide goes into a bit more detail: Link

Pretty much the thicker the better but these denture resins are quite strong.

We are working on a batch of denture samples if you or anyone would like to test their concrete floors. : ) DM me if interested, it might take me a week or two but I'll put in the request.

This reminds me a few years ago we had a 1/2 to 3/4 inch diameter sphere of sintered and polished zirconia and tried to break it. We threw the ball as hard as we could from 20 feet up down to concrete and could not scratch or dent it, I was blown away. Not claiming this material is that strong, but that was a good memory at CAP. :D
