Did you have any issues with tears or separations printing such a large part with that material?
Here is a link to the best practices documentation for each material. It provides orientation recommendations for the best accuracy: http://infocenter.3dsystems.com/bestpractices/dlp-best-practices/nextdent-5100/3d-sprint/materialsTried out the C&B MFH on a hybrid implant case last week. sure, why not try a 5 implant provisional/ verification jig. Yikes! I got an education on part orientation and accuracy. After 3 misprints it actually worked. Check out the minimal supports on the print that came out accurate. Then I printed a model with analog sockets and a gingival mask generated from the scanned working model to see how it all would compare. Everything fit well. I’m not the best photographer, but here are some pics:
No, I'm trying to use the material for a different application, one that is not supported by Nextdent. I'm not sure that your part, given it's size, is supported either but was encouraged when I saw it.Jay, Are you doing a denture base? Different resin material than g-mask Check here for setting up a denture base:
Actually the elastic G-mask resin is from Nextdent. From your pic ...I would try adding some more supports on the left and right buccals keeping them away from the gum line and maybe tilt the model a little more towards the occlusalNo, I'm trying to use the material for a different application, one that is not supported by Nextdent.

I understand. Here's a quote from a 3D Systems representative concerning the use of the Gingiva Mask material from Nextdent:Actually the elastic G-mask resin is from Nextdent.
Hello Jason-I apologize that we dropped the ball on getting you your print samples. That is not the norm for us. We print benchmark parts for people daily. If you would like to email me the stl file (if it can be emailed or Drop Box) at [email protected] I would be more than happy to have the benchmark part printed and sent out to you.Tell you a sad story…
We were considering the Asiga not long ago and whip mix offered to print some models for us so we could get a comparison. Two weeks after we sent the file still no models - sigh.
someone did follow up to see what we thought of the printer… To which I responded “I wouldn’t know you never sent me the model so I could do the comparison”
They were very responsive at that point, but I simply said “any Time I’m considering a new technology price is the last thing I look at. First is the utility of the piece of equipment within the workflows I want to create. Second is the complexity of using and maintaining the device, because scalability is important and training and maintenance can affect that. Third is the level of responsiveness and support from the person I’m purchasing it from, because I’m not yet an expert in the new technology, I need other experts to guide me while I’m becoming one. Fourth is price.”
Give me a call when you have a chance. 513.680.1512.So I am about to purchase a nextdent (made for amann girrbach) . I got a good offer that also includes training in amann girrbach factory. Any last words ? I have an offer for Asiga also, but not as good. Is Nextdent worth its money or asiga is still better?
