Stratasys announced the launch of the Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer, specially designed for smaller orthodontic labs and clinics. Objet30 OrthoDesk fits on a desktop in any lab. According to the company, it enables orthodontists to create accurate, smooth, orthodontic models that can be stored digitally, eliminating the need to save bulky physical models.
The printer comes with specialized dental printing materials in sealed cartridges. Stone models, orthodontic appliances, delivery and positioning trays, clear aligners, retainers and surgical guides can all be produced. Based on PolyJet 3D Printing technology, the printer jets ultrafine layers of material for smooth, accurate models. As many as 20 models can be created with every print run.
