3D Printing Party!
3D Printers are all the rage in dentistry these days, but how do you know which one is right for you? What can I 3D Print and why should I even get involved with this technology? In this fun, information packed hands on course doctors and their team will learn the ins and outs of the 3 major types of 3D printers, FDM such as the CEL Robox, which is used mainly for surgical guides, SLA such as the Form 2, which I used for clear aligner models and surgical guides, and DLP, such as the Envisiontec Vida and Moonray by Sprintray and the Asiga Max by WhipMix, which are used for die models, aligners, guides and more! Students will also learn the Meshmixer with the Christian Brenes tooth library, that can help docs get their STL models printer ready, as well as do diagnostic wax ups, and make essix retainers, design guides and night guards. In this class we will also cover aligner fabrication and low cost Orthodontic software that will allow you to do most cases for under $250 and we will use various pressure and vacuforming machines to fabricate aligners.
