What is Stereolithography

Computational Techniques for Dental Image Analysis
Stereolithography is a process for making models and parts in which a solid is built up a layer at a time by hardening parts of a container of resin using light. In stereolithography, parts are produced by successive solidification of thin resin layers using a UV laser beam.

DOI: 10.4018/978-1-5225-6243-6.ch010
This chapter introduces the recent trend in 3D printing (3DP) in dentistry. The advantage and disadvantages of 3DP are discussed. It elaborates on different types of 3DP techniques involved and their significance. The chapter further discuss about the biomaterial used. It also describes the complete steps involved in 3DP such as image acquisition, modeling, segmentation, and printing techniques. The merits and demerits of the different methodologies pertaining to steps involved in 3DP are illustrated. Rapid prototyping in dental implants is discussed in detail. It ends with review of a case study in implementing the technique.
