The multi-color, multi-material 3D printing solution produces dental models with gum-like softness and color, a range of natural tooth shades, and nerve canals or other anatomy in contrasting materials.
“Seven months ago, Stratasys transformed digital dentistry by enabling ultra-realistic dental models to be 3D printed in a single run. This new level of flexibility, precision and efficiency was aimed to allow labs to streamline their digital workflow while improving their competitive edge,” said Steffen Mueller, General Manager, Dental Solutions, Stratasys. “Now with the launch of the Objet500 Dental Selection 3D Printer, we are adding increased throughput and productivity to this winning formula by featuring Stratasys game-changing, triple-jetting technology on a larger platform. We believe this is a ‘must have’ 3D printing solution for larger dental and orthodontic labs that want to provide a superior customer experience while maintaining profitable volume production.”
Application examples include:
• Implant testing on stone models with a gingival mask that mimics the look and feel of real gums for accurate evaluation of the emergence profile.
• Single models or groups of models that require different materials to be used simultaneously in one unattended job.
• Models requiring gum-like materials, even mixed with rigid features.
• Jaw models 3D printed directly from CBCT scan data with high-definition tooth, root and nerve canal anatomy rendered in contrasting materials.
Accelerated Throughput for Robust Digital Workflows
The Objet500 Dental Selection is an especially attractive solution for larger dental restorative and orthodontic labs that are interested in implementing digital dentistry end-to-end, from intra-oral scanners to realistic models, and which serve a wide range of dental applications in larger production volumes. Because multiple applications can be produced in a single print run, the Objet500 Dental Selection requires fewer interventions which frees lab staff for more important operations.
