3D Systems has announced a new 3D printer platform and new materials to enhance its digital dentistry portfolio.
First, your new printer (NextDent LCD1) is a compact and easy-to-use device that delivers high-quality results, making it an ideal choice for small dental offices. The printer uses LCD technology and has automatic calibration, which provides a very smooth surface finish and is three times faster than what is possible with stereolithography (SLA) printers.
On the resin side, the company’s new NextDent Base and NextDent Cast materials have been designed to improve mechanical properties and are suitable for printing all types of removable denture bases, crowns and bridges. NextDent Cast material is residue-free and easy to burn, providing a castable tooth that is stable and strong.
These innovations will accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing in dental workflows and provide new levels of speed, productivity, efficiency and precision. In addition, they will enhance the patient experience by providing durable, impact resistant dentures and other dental components.
3D Systems aims to address customer needs with these solutions and believes that these products will enable the adoption of 3D printing in dentistry. The company will showcase its digital dentistry solutions at IDS 2023 in Cologne, Germany, which is taking place right now.
