Session 2 – The Current and Future Landscape of 3D Printing in Dental

Over the past 15 years digital technology has transformed dentistry. In this event, we’ll start there: unpacking how far the industry has come, and then move into where we are today and what the future holds. Join us to learn more about what’s being manufactured digitally today (and why), where 3D printing fits in, and how to spot market opportunities.

We’ll conclude with the role of Formlabs in dentistry’s disruption, covering our 3D printing systems and dental resins, and what’s next for Formlabs in dental.

Session 1 – 3D Systems’ NextDent 5100 – 3D Printing Device for Dentistry

Learn the latest in dental 3D printing innovation from 3D Systems in this demo of its NextDent 5100 printer, which facilitates high-speed 3D printing for production of dental devices and fixtures. The printer is compatible with industry-standard state-of-the-art intra-oral scanning and software solutions to deliver more precise results than conventional manual production techniques. This session will demo the end-to-end digital workflow that provides higher, more predictable uptime, with a significant reduction in risk for the operator. With the new technology, dental laboratories and clinics are able to address more indications with one solution to produce dental devices at dramatically increased speed – up to 4x faster than other available solutions. The printer also reduces material waste and capital equipment expenditure to provide customers up to 90 percent cost savings. Benefits extend to the patient by reducing the time it takes to produce prosthodontics and orthodontics, as well as the number of required office visits.

Speaker: Brian Nilson,
Nilson Laboratories Inc.,

Session 2 – Aligners and Models for Making Orthodontic Appliances

An overview on the manufacturing techniques Accu-Move used in the past. Accu-Move were one of the first to make aligners after the very well known Invisalign. Brian will explain past production techniques and also explain Why they use the process they do. You will hear about the transition from manual to digital about inter-oral and model scans. The session will cover IPR issues, Aligner materials, Hollow model techniques, Tooth “parking” button placement and trimming of trays.
