3D Systems today announced that its ProJet® 3510 MP 3D printer and proprietary VisiJet® Stoneplast dental materials are now also available for use with 3Shape Implant Studio™, allowing dental professionals to output accurate and fully 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 will be launched in the EU countries in April 2014. Implant Studio is not available for sale in the US.
The ProJet 3510 MP uses 3DS' 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 accurate, fully functional 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, VP Product Strategy, 3Shape. "This digital workflow with 3D printing integration brings the dental field a highly precise and affordable solution."
"We are very pleased to offer our dental lab customers a proven solution for manufacturing drill guides using 3Shape's new Implant Studio software, a solution that combines the latest products from two leading providers forming a powerful and affordable manufacturing tool," said Lee Dockstader, VP Business Development, 3DS.
