Due to their precision, they are used mainly for applications requiring a […]

Duplication of the gypsum model is a useful process, sometimes even irreplaceable, in certain dental processes, for instance when there is a risk of damage (even at anatomic detail level) or if it is useful or necessary to make changes during the modelling of the manufactured product.
