This allows dental specialist professionals to output accurate and functional dental implant drill guides that are designed using the 3Shape Implant Studio software. Implant Studio is 3Shape’s newest software product for implant planning and surgical guide design.
3Shape Implant Studio is scheduled to launch in the EU countries in April 2014. Implant Studio is not available for sale in the U.S.
The ProJet 3510 MP uses 3D Systems’ proprietary Stoneplast dental material in a transparent or opaque build mode. The printed surgical guides are based on ready-to-print, Implant Studio-exported STL models to produce surgical guides.
“3D Systems’ ProJet 3510 MP and Stoneplast materials produce accurate prints and easily integrate with our software for the ultimate distributed manufacturing solution,” said Rune Fisker, vice president, product strategy, 3Shape.
“This digital workflow with 3-D printing integration brings the dental field a highly precise and affordable solution.”
Added Lee Dockstader, vice president, business development, 3D Systems: “We are very pleased to offer our dental lab customers a proven solution for manufacturing drill guides using 3Shape’s new dental Implant Studio software, a solution that combines the latest products from two leading providers forming a powerful and affordable manufacturing tool.”…read more
