5 Other Things to Produce With Your Dental 3D Printer

A 3D printer is one of the most versatile technologies around, and these systems can do a lot more than produce dental models and restorations.

It’s safe to say that over the course of the past decade 3D printing has advanced to the point where the technology is not only a vital part of many modern dental laboratories but a foundation for the future of the industry.

Perhaps the ideal technology for meeting the needs of dental labs, 3D printers allow for rapid production of small, customized parts with a high degree of detail and accuracy. With different printing systems capable of printing in wax, polymers, ceramics, and metals, the technology is already able to meet most of the needs of dental labs when it comes to the production of dental prosthetics and the various parts and pieces needed to fabricate them.

But a 3D printer is one of the most versatile technologies in the dental laboratory industry. These systems are limited only by their build volumes and material options, and even with those limitations, there are numerous other applications for 3D printers that might be of interest to dental lab professionals. Here are 5 other things you can print on your lab’s 3D printer.
