Known for its compact and robust dental milling systems, Roland DGA is the newest company to offer a 3D printing solution with the launch of the new 3DXPRINT 3D printer.

Created as a compliment to the company’s DWX series of wet and dry dental mills, the 3DXPRINT features 4KL LCD 3D printing technology for rapid production of precision dental parts. The printer is capable of producing dental models, dentures, provisional crowns and bridges, occlusal guards, surgical guides, custom clear retainers, removable die fits, and more, according to a press release.

With its small footprint, the printer is suited for use in both dental practices and well as dental laboratories, but the compact size, doesn’t limit the system’s capabilities. The printer features a 90 x 120 x 180 mm build plate with 40 square-inches of surface. This allows the printer to produce up to 8 full arches in a single print run. Depending on the material being printed, the 3DXPRINT can print at speeds up to 50 mm per hour. An open-architecture printer, it is validated for printing with more than 150 resins from more than 20 different manufacturers.

Additionally, the company is offering the printer as a part of the 3DX Dental 3D Printer Bundle which includes the printer, the corresponding 3DXWASH cleaning system, 3DXCURE curing system, as well as 3DXMODEL resin. The bundle also includes 3DXWORKS CAD design and slicing software, and there are no maintenance, update, or annual fees.

“We are excited to offer this fast, precise, and affordable 3D printing solution to our customers,” Roland DGA dental marketing manager Lisa Aguirre says in a press release. “The 3DX bundle is a complete, advanced, easy-to-use 3D printing solution that perfectly complements our high-performance DWX milling machines. By integrating its capabilities into their workflows, businesses can optimize their production and offer same-day applications with outstanding uniformity and accuracy.”

While developing the printer, Roland DGA put it though a 5-million-layer test process in real-time dental conditions. This helped refine its performance and demonstrated the system’s reliability. The 3DXPRINT is fabricated with industrial-grade optical components, and it also features an automated cooling system to keep it operating at the ideal temperature.
