3D-DentalPrint - Additive manufacturing of zirconia and nanostructured alumina/zirconia dental prosthesis (FCT project)

3D-DentalPrint project investigated the possibility of using an innovative technology, robocasting, to produce reliable dental structures, with several advantages over conventional subtractive manufacturing methods. Nanozirconia based materials were developed and optimized and other reinforced ceramic composites are being studied for the production of multilayered structures.
