ProJet 1200 Micro-SLA 3D Printer
3D Systems announces the availability of its previously announced ProJet 1200 micro-SLA printer and commencement of customer shipments.
This affordable, safe micro-SLA 3D printer is capable of producing small, precise, detail-rich parts and casting patterns and is ideal for dental wax-ups. Smaller than most coffee makers and faster than baking a cake, this printer is economical to own, safe to operate anywhere, and simple to use. With super-fast print speeds and high accuracy of detail, dental labs can print up to 12 precise dental wax ups in less than 1 hour. The Projet 1200 prints at 30-µm layers at e585 dpi resolution featuring micro details with excellent surface smoothness.
A New Approach to 3D Printing for Dentistry
A California firm, Carbon3D , is developing a new 3D printing technology using Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) that could help bring 3D printed customized creations to dentistry. CLIP harnesses light and oxygen to continuously grow objects from a pool of resin instead of printing them layer-by-layer. The printed object rises from a liquid mixture in a process that is up to 100 times faster than typical additive 3D printing systems. These print speeds allow parts to be produced in minutes instead of hours. Carbon3D believes the technology is directly related to dental applications....Read More
