Objet30 Dental Prime 3-D Printer expands digital dentistry by producing wide range of dental models and appliances on the desktop. Stratasys Ltd, a developer of 3-D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, introduces the Objet30 Dental Prime, a compact, low-cost 3-D printer designed to allow smaller dental labs to produce a wide range of models and appliances in-house. While compact in size, the Objet30 Dental Prime is big in versatility. It offers users a choice of 3-D print modes: High-Quality and High-Speed. The High-Quality mode 3-D prints models with the superior surface finish and intricate, delicate features required for precise fittings on crown, bridge, and prosthetic models (in 16-micron layers). The High-Speed mode 3-D prints at accelerated speeds to produce orthodontic models and surgical guides with increased productivity (in 28-micron layers). Together, these two print modes enable smaller labs to produce a wide range of dental and orthodontic appliances in-house—increasing productivity, shortening delivery times, and improving patient satisfaction. The Objet30 Dental Prime’s versatility continues with a choice of three PolyJet 3-D printing materials: • VeroDentPlus (MED690): dark beige material that offers strength, accuracy, and durability to create intricate models • Clear Biocompatible (MED610): medically approved for temporary in-mouth placement; essential for producing surgical guides and investment castings for chromium cobalt removable partial denture (RPD) frames • VeroGlaze (MED620): opaque, biocompatible material with A2 shading designed to provide accurate color-matching; ideal for veneer try-ins, diagnostic wax-ups, and clear aligner trays By enabling smaller dental labs to produce models and appliances in-house, the Objet30 Dental Prime 3-D Printer reduces the need for outsourcing and enables smaller labs to be more competitive. “The introduction of the compact, versatile Objet30 Dental Prime 3-D Printer continues Stratasys’ commitment to providing a variety of solutions to meet the different needs of dental and orthodontic labs, small and large. This addition to our entry-level desktop family brings superior-quality 3-D printing available to all dental labs who want to provide competitive digital dentistry services to their clients,” said Steffen Mueller, general manager of Dental Solutions for Stratasys. Key applications for the Objet30 Dental Prime 3-D Printer include: • Crown & bridge models: 16-micron layers provide a high level of accuracy and detail for crown and bridge stone models • RPD casting patterns: Print casting patterns for removable partial dentures; clear biocompatible material (MED610) can be used in the mouth and can also be investment cast for chromium cobalt RPD frames • Diagnostic wax-up: VeroGlaze(MED620) shading provides better aesthetics and is medically approved for temporary in-mouth placement (up to 24 hours) • Surgical guides: MED610 is the most widely used material for all 3-D printed surgical guides • Veneer try-in: VeroGlaze shading creates realistic veneer try-ins • Clear aligners: VeroGlaze allows for cost-effective production of multiple-stage arches in the fabrication of clear aligner trays
