Stratasys
Synopsis:
3D printing plays a valuable role in the dental lab at Precision Ceramics. With the use of 3D printing on the rise, the purchase of an Eden260V PolyJet printer from Stratasys was a necessary addition to our facility. The versatility of the 3D printer has had a very meaningful impact on the work flow of the lab. Being able to quickly print out models, surgical guides, anatomical models, partial denture frameworks and more, has saved valuable time and money. Having the ability to accurately print out verification jigs approved for in-mouth use gives us the ability to check on fit, form and function before approving the final product. The use of 3D printing in the dental lab is a more vital tool than ever before.

What You Will Learn:
• How 3D printing works in the laboratory setting.
• What applications work best with the Stratasys Eden260V.
• The many ways in which 3D printing can help streamline work flow in the lab.
• What does it take to maintain a 3D printer?
