What was our mission? 

At Monocure 3D, we love a challenge! Our goal was simple, to develop the Ultimate Resin for all 3D printed dental models. It needed to be locally manufactured & supplied, affordable, low rate of failure and produce perfectly dimensionally accurate dental models.

How did we develop PORCELENE™? 

Our search began with the dental labs; we reached out to the biggest and the best. It was no surprise that they were all enthusiastic and keen to help us! Our 3D Printlab tested an extensive range of competitors’ products to determine why these were considered market leaders.

We wanted to discover the most important properties to the lab technicians and dentists who needed the models and the people operating the 3D printers. So, our journey began, and no stone was left unturned. We needed the colour, viscosity, texture, odour, hardness, rigidness, accuracy, heat resistance, no warping or shrinking, opaqueness, surface finish, compatibility, speed, durability, compatibility, and ease of cleaning to get right.

The list of demands was high, but our chemists took on the challenge and started the development process. With each new resin sample being sent to our selected Dental Lab technicians and dentists for field testing. Like any new product development, failures are part of the process. The feedback we received from each sample tested was invaluable. Combined with our chemist’s experience, analytical skills and systematic approach, PORCELENE™ Resin was born.

What makes the material so unique? 

Designed to work in all open system DLP & MSLA 3D printers, PORCELENE™ dental model resin allows for high precision accuracy, dimensional stability, an opaque matte finish with a gypsum-like texture for all 3D printed dental model processing. The delicate balance between toughness, hardness and flexibility optimises it for all processes including diagnostic, implant & orthodontic models, crown & bridge prototypes. Its low flex properties also make it suitable for vacuum forming aligner models. 

How important is quality control? 

Our quality control procedures follow the ISO 9001 guidelines to ensure batch to batch consistency in every bottle. We call this the set and forget methodology, meaning you only have to dial this Resin in once, then it’s as simple as pour and print, giving you more time focusing on what’s important. The unique low viscosity formula means lower print failures in colder weather, allowing consistent results all year round. 

Which PORCELENE™ formula is best for my printer? 

This new Resin is available in two formulas. You can search for the optimum resin for your printer by following the link to our handy guide. If your printer uses a projector module (DLP) to create the layers, you need to choose the S formula. If you have a 3D printer that uses an LCD screen and a LED array (MSLA) to create the layers, you will select the R version. Both formulas are available in an Almond (light Tan) and Grey colour, they are packed in UV safe black 1ltr bottles and handy 5ltr Jerries. For a limited time, we will offer complimentary 250ml sample bottles if you would like to test Porcelene™ in your printer.

What are the experts saying?

“I have been printing with the original Monocure 3D dental resin for some time. Charlie asked if I wanted to try the new PORCELENE™ material. I was amazed at the ease of printing, low failure rate and how well the models printed. I will be using this as my go-to model resin from now on. Thanks, guys for developing a high-quality resin at an affordable price.”

“I was looking for a local Resin supplier for my 3D printer and found Charlie at Monocure 3D. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they make an Australian developed and manufactured Dental Model Resin that is very price competitive. The support they provided was amazing; they got my printer up and running on their Resin in no time!”

“We have been printing with the new Monocure 3D Porcelene (S) dental resin in our Asiga Max UV for various dental appliances for some time now and the team couldn’t be happier. The material prints beautiful dental models with the lowest failure rate of any other resin I’ve used in the past. We look forward to using the other great resins Charlie and his innovative team will bring out in the future. Thanks, guys for making printing that little bit easier!”
