THE CURRENT STATE OF

3D PRINTING
FOR LABS
By Bob Cohen

3D Printing Now Available for Every Lab
Until recently, additive technology has been available
to labs. However, problems such as poor ROI, accuracy,
dependability, and high materials costs have kept most
away. Like all technologies, the price of 3D printers is
plummeting. That said, will an $800 printer provide
what we need? Not yet, but there is now a printer priced
well below $10k that will provide so much value to any
lab. It's dependable and comes with very reasonable,
competitive materials pricing. The Form 2 printer from
Formlabs looks to be the real deal for so many dental
applications. We have been running one at my lab for
nearly a year with no problems. It just keeps on printing
and making us money every day.
Indications: We are now printing surgical guides, wax
patterns for pressing and casting, QC models for crown
and bridge, bite splints, and temps. The printer is also
great for orthodontic models and ortho appliances. In
addition, I spent some time with a Formlabs engineer this
week, and there are some very exciting new indications
that will likely launch later this year. I can easily imagine
a lineup of these printers loaded with different materials
for different indications in the lab.
Training and Support: As always, training and support
can be obtained through the CAP tech support network.
This group has helped bring so many new products to
our market, and this one is anticipated to be a market
best solution for 2017. Training is quite simple, especially
if you already do CAD and CAM for milling.
