Imagine 3D printed full color artificial teeth for permanent use. Why not? This question we asked ourselves two years ago. And our scientific curiosity resulted in first multi material and -color 3D jetted tooth model.
Driving vision is to bring dentistry on a new level of multi-material and colourful 3D printing.
This presentation will provide some insights on the unique jetting possibilities of biocompatible dental resins in combination with 3D workflow software.
What drives you?
I am motivated by seeing the results of my efforts translate into a physical object. I enjoy every aspect of product development but nothing makes me happier than seeing the actual working prototype. That’s why I’m driven to be hands on every step of the way an why I’m so focused on result outcome.
Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
Through the presentation, delegates can learn more easily and thoroughly about new approach and solutions to complex problems.
What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Short term: Realistic color management software and additive manufacturing.
Long term: Medical legislation and 3D printed personalized product.
What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Short term: Color is not only outside, its also inside. And there is a need to go from monocolor 3D models to multicolor.
Long term: They will allow new technology be a legal option for a customer and as a result speed up personalized care.
What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
Everything new is scary at the beginning. The customer needs to trust technology.
