Technologies have revolutionized several areas of health, including dentistry. Professional dynamization of technology to improve the quality of specific products that depend exclusively on the area of dentistry. By the dental procedure. The polymers used in this technique are acrylates, of synthetic origin, non-biodegradable. This proposal aims to develop photopolymerizable polymers from non-edible and biodegradable vegetable oils to replace acrylic polymers. In this way, the proposal aims to increase the renewable character of polymers used in 3D printing, as well as the use of raw material of renewable origin.(AU)
