BCN3D Announcing New Patented AM Technology
During a virtual event at 10 am EST on Wednesday, March 2nd, BCN3D will be introducing and showcasing a new patented 3D printing technology, which has been in development for the last three years and was developed specifically to open up manufacturing autonomy. The new technology is completely different from the company’s existing FFF 3D printing solutions, and BCN3D engineers will explain the latest developments in detail. The online showcase will also feature material and development partner Arkema, as well as two testers of this technology: Tier 1 automotive manufacturer Saint-Gobain and motorsport and advanced technology company Prodrive.
“After decades of externalizing production to faraway locations in attempts to save on labor costs, AM has the potential to allow for local manufacturing and ensure companies have better control of their supply chains. The recent pandemic has proven the risks associated with this model: vulnerability against crises and subsequent shortages, vulnerable economies, and fierce competition to obtain manufactured goods abroad. 3D printing should be able to increase the competitiveness of the local industry to counteract delocalization by offering far greater flexibility and immediacy. On top of that, the current manufacturing industry urgently needs to focus on sustainability – it needs to strive for lower emissions and to shrink carbon footprints,” BCN3D’s CEO Xavier Martínez Faneca wrote in a letter explaining this milestone.
“In order to push our solutions towards this reality and reach these goals, we have to envision what we call Manufacturing Autonomy: a future where innovators and manufacturers are able to build end-use parts, with improved productivity and a degree of flexibility and accessibility that enables widespread adoption on a massive scale. We expect that in 10 years 3D printing will stop being the partner to our traditional manufacturing workflows that it is now and instead take its rightful place as the pivotal point in manufacturing. It is then that we will be able to scale up the use of 3D printing and this technology will offer its full potential to society.”

Ken Parrish, DMD, PhD, Russellville Dental Lab’s Managing Partner Lee Coursey, and Matt Vierra DDS, MS will teach attendees how to incorporate SprintRay’s 3D printing solutions into their own implant practice routine in order to maximize efficiency, precision, and profitability.
“Pre-surgical planning and preparation using the latest in intra-oral scanning combining static or dynamic guidance with comprehensive incorporation of onsite manufacturing will be reviewed. IOS and CBCT can be combined to plan the ideal biologic implant position to support a cosmetic, functional and cleansable restorative outcome. The surgical plan can then be predictably and precisely delivered using in-office printed static guides or dynamic navigation. The provisional restoration can be printed onsite prior to surgery or immediately subsequent to implant placement. While detailed planning can help minimize complications, complex biologic and mechanical systems will inevitably have some negative outcomes. Digital files developed during the planning stage make it remarkably simple to rapidly replace a fractured provisional or deliver a same day immediate denture with in-office 3D printing. Simple, rapid and cost-effective occlusal guards make it easy to protect your patient’s investment and your hard work in less than an hour.”
You can register for the course for $995 here.
