What is 3D Printer training?
At 3D Dental we offer Formlabs SLA training which teaches you how to operate your 3D Printer ready to use for your application. Our technical engineers will help you understand what stereolithography (SLA) is, how you can optimise your setup to achieve highly detailed parts every time and what components are inside your Formlabs Machine. At the end of your training course, our engineer will run through pre and post print checks to enable you to feel more comfortable when you start using your Formlabs 3D Printer.
What knowledge do you need for 3D Printing in Dentistry?
3D printing is an exciting technology that has recently been gaining momentum in dentistry. With 3-dimensional prints of patients' mouths, dentists are now able to print accurate models with less risk for error and greater precision than traditional techniques saving time and money. In addition , this revolutionary approach offers a unique way of thinking about the treatment plan--from design through final fit -by offering virtual "tryouts" before committing  fully into real life surgery.

How is 3D Printing being used in Dentistry?
3D printing has been used in dentistry to create models of patients’ teeth for planning extractions. It also allows dental practitioners the ability use teachings aids such as virtual tours and panoramic imaging so they can provide their patient's with a more thorough explanation about what work needs done, why it is necessary or useful for them (for example: crowns), plus allow you see yourself before any invasive procedures begin!
How do I choose a 3D dental printer for my practice?
One of the most important considerations must be the accuracy and precision of the printer. This goes beyond simply analysing a machine’s technical specifications. You must also evaluate the 3D printer’s quality, the technology it uses, the materials utilised for printing, the software settings, and options for post-processing. One sure way to determine the quality of a particular printer is to combine examination of the technical specifications with a sample part created by it. We are happy to send you such a sample so you can evaluate the quality for yourself.

Other important factors to take into account include how easy the machine is for you and your staff to use; how much your initial investment will be in the technology and how quickly you’ll receive a decent return on that investment (including upfront and running costs), and what materials you can use (notably, whether you’re tied to a particular manufacturer’s materials or can use those made by third parties. Speed of printing is also important to consider, as is the ability to scale up in future as demand increases.
What is a dental scanner?
The obvious factors are accuracy, speed, flexible workflows and an open system. But just as important is the quality of the software and the options it presents in terms of how scanned images are displayed – can they be easily understood by patients for educational purposes and to enhance customer satisfaction and approval of treatment options? You should also make sure your scanner is fully integrable with other technologies you use in your practice and with any external lab you use. Factor ongoing maintenance and repair costs into your budget; and ensure your staff on board with the technology and willing to learn how to use it before investing in an intraoral scanner.
How much does a 3D dental printer cost?
As an example, the best selling Formlabs Form 3 complete packages is £4,299 excluding VAT. This includes all you need to manufacture high-quality and precise parts and start printing right away: as well as the printer, you will also receive a resin tank, a platform, a finish kit, the Preform software, a Form wash and a Form cure. The Form 3 uses low force stereolithography to produce retail-grade models and end-use parts from a variety of materials. If you wish to print with medical grade resins, the Form 3B may be more suitable.

All Form 3 and 3B printers are compatible with consumables used by the Form 2, and if you are looking to upgrade to the Form 3 or 3B, for a limited time, you will receive a £500 credit to use against future consumables.
