3D Printer for Dental Labs – Part 2
Throughput and Cost of Dental Products with 3D Printing on a Form 2 Desktop SLA 3D Printer
Get Started with Dental 3D Printing
Much has changed since the first desktop 3D printers became available for the dental industry. While a few years ago 3D printers were only affordable to the largest dental labs, now they are a common sight in labs and practices of any size.
Consider the factors discussed above and the needs of your lab and practice—different solutions might suit some business better than others. Digital dentistry is developing rapidly, and new desktop solutions can produce dental products with similar or even better quality and accuracy traditional large-format 3D printers. Make sure to do your research, evaluate actual parts, and avoid paying a hefty premium.
Throughput and Scalability
Transitioning to digital dentistry should be a gradual process, starting with a single application and scaling up to multiple applications and workflows step by step.
The number of dental products a 3D printer can produce depends highly on the specific model and the application. For example, a DLP printer’s projector exposes layers to light all at once, whereas in SLA printers, the laser has to draw out each part. This leads to an increase in speed for large, fully dense prints. However, the resolution of the projector limits the build volume, so the overall throughput is similar. Inquire with the manufacturer for specific data on multiple applications and scenarios.
