Abstract :

3D printing or additive manufacturing is the forerunner in today’s digital dentistry. Charles Hull devised the concept of 3D printing in dentistry in early 1980’s. 3D printing involves addition of layers, one over another, to form an object. (1) Rapid prototyping, layered manufacturing or solid-free form fabrication are various other terms used that refer to additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing has been in use in dentistry since early 1980’s and has constantly evolved from the first 3D printers in 1984, up to the recent bioprinters capable of printing specific tissues and organs
