Stratasys has introduced the Objet500 Dental Selection 3D Printer for larger dental and orthodontic labs that require volume production of highly precise, life-like models. The new 3D printer brings high throughput to Stratasys’ special multi-color, multi-material dental modeling.
The Objet500 Dental Selection 3D Printer’s large build area allows a dental laboratory to dramatically increase throughput, while its triple-jetting technology can create a variety of dental-specific palettes, allowing multiple applications to be combined in a single run.
Accurately Simulates Look and Feel of Teeth and Gums
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. This is accomplished by simultaneously combining Stratasys flexible and rigid PolyJet dental materials, including:
- VeroDent (MED670), a natural peach-tone material offering high-quality detail, strength and durability.
- VeroDentPlus (MED690), a dark beige material that creates ultra fine features and finish, and offers excellent strength, accuracy and durability.
- VeroGlaze (MED620), an opaque material with A2 shading, meaning dental labs can now offer dentist offices the best color match in the industry. Ideal for veneer try-ins and diagnostic wax-ups, VeroGlaze is medically approved for temporary in-mouth placement, up to 24 hours.
- Clear Bio-compatible (MED610), can produce orthodontic appliances, delivery and positioning trays, surgical guides for temporary in-mouth placement and investment casting patterns for removable partial dentures.
“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 — together with life-like natural tooth shade color models – was aimed to allow labs to streamline their digital workflow while improving their competitive edge,” said Steffen Mueller, General Manager, Dental Solutions, Stratasys.
