Accuracy evaluation of dental models manufactured by CAD/CAM milling method and 3D printing method

RESULTS The RMS value (152±52 µm) of the model manufactured by the milling method was significantly higher than the RMS value (52±9 µm) of the model produced by the 3D printing method.

CONCLUSION The accuracy of the 3D printing method is superior to that of the milling method, but at present, both methods are limited in their application as a work model for prosthesis manufacture.
