The new releases include Fast Cure, PreForm Dental, Fact Arch Printing, PreForm Integration with 3Shape Produce, and New Bleach shade for Temporary CB Resin.
Formlabs Dental has introduced 5 new products to its digital dentistry solutions. The new releases include Fast Cure, PreForm Dental, Fact Arch Printing, PreForm Integration with 3Shape Produce, and New Bleach shade for Temporary CB Resin. These new products and features are designed to help users achieve higher efficiency, spend more time with their patients, and spend less time printing, according to a press release from Formlabs.
Fast Cure is a new post-processing curing unit that is said to complete the curing of a splint in 6 minutes, compared to 60 minutes for the same splint in the standard Form Cure print. Total workflow times—from scanning a patient to delivering the final model—are dependent on curing times, the press release stated. With 50 LED lights, higher light intensity levels, and no preheating required, Fast Cure can also produce dental models in 1-3 minutes, crowns and bridges in 5 minutes, and occlusal guards in 6 minutes depending on the material used.
According to Formlabs, the company’s dental resins have been tested with Fast Cure to ensure safety. Fast Cure active cooling keeps the exterior cool to the touch.
PreForm Dental is the company’s new workspace that optimizes print preparation setup for dental parts with pre-programmed settings for each indication. This saves time and improves standardization in your workflow. PreForm Dental is designed to achieve 3 goals; save time; improve print success rate; and add conformity to your workflow.
Formlabs has also introduced Fast Arch Printing for quick model printing on the Form 3B+. These print settings enable users to print 8 dental arches in 20 minutes and a single dental arch in less than 10 minutes using Draft Resin. This is said to allow dentists to deliver a retainer to a patient in under 30 minutes, according to the company.
PreForm and Fast Arch are launching alongside new integrations with 3Shape and new bleach shades for Temporary CB Resin. 3Shape Produce users can now move a file into PreForm and have it ready to print with 1 click.
Users of Temporary CB Resin can now offer patients a bright, clean bleach shade for “Hollywood White” smiles, according to Formlabs. Temporary CB Resin is a tooth-colored resin for the 3D printing of temporary crown and bridge restorations, inlays, onlays, and veneers. It is indicated for up to 7-unit bridges and is available in 5 shades, including the new bleach shade.
