Stratasys Built A 3D Printer Exclusively For Dental LabsBy: Zach Walton - March 13, 2013
We’ve already seen how 3D printers are revolutionizing dentistry, but the technology is still out of reach for many smaller clinics. Stratasys is hoping to remedy that with a new 3D printer built just for orthodontic labs.
Say hell to the Stratasys Objet30 OrthoDesk, a 3D printer that combines “a small desktop footprint that’s easy to use and maintain with the accuracy and versatility of a high-end rapid prototyping machine.”
So why is Stratasys getting into dentistry such a big deal? It’s not so much the dentistry, but the fact that the company was able to shrink a high-end 3D printer into a desktop size without sacrificing its accuracy. Hopefully this means Stratasys will make a high accuracy desktop 3D printer available to other industries soon.
