    Aim: This study aims to assess the knowledge about stereolithography (SLA) and its applications among dental students. Introduction: Computers can now be used to create accurately detailed projects that can be assessed from different perspectives in a process known as computer-aided design (CAD). To materialize virtual objects using CAD, a computer-aided manufacture (CAM) process has been developed. To transform a virtual file into a real object, CAM operates using a machine connected to a computer, similar to a printer or peripheral device. In 1987, Brix and Lambrecht used, for the 1st time, a prototype in health care. In 1991, human anatomy models produced with a technology called SLA were first used in a maxillofacial surgery clinic in Vienna. Materials and Methods: This study included 112 subjects. A questionnaire containing six questions was framed and survey was conducted using “SURVERYPLANET.” Results were obtained and tabulated. Results: The obtained results showed that only 24% of dental students were aware of SLA and its applications. Conclusion: This study concludes that there is not enough awareness about SLA and its uses among dental students and that it should be used more frequently considering its advantages.
