Dental 3D Workflow

  • Scanning


    During the initial digitization and planning phases, the patient’s anatomy is digitally recorded using optical 3D scanners to ensure that every unique detail is noted. Dental practices then send the convention impression, otherwise known are plaster models, to dental laboratories where they are digitized by desktop optical 3D scanners. The anatomical structure of a patient can also be taken with an intraoral scanner, depending on the practice and patient’s wants.

  • Modeling

    After the planning and design, the data is prepared and whichever printing strategy one is using is applied. The strategy used for the printing process serves as a blueprint for the denture.

    It’s like a recipe, guiding the production of the product. It is always optimally matched to the application as well as the predetermined material so that the best results can be achieved.



  • Nesting


    Nesting refers to the arrangement and reorientation of components for all the printing parts. There, the focus is on aligning as many components as close together as possible to have a multitude of components all on one build platform. This alignment of the dental 3D objects chosen by the software saves valuable post-processing time.

  • Printing

    Once the printer has been prepared for printing, the print file can be loaded straight from the CAM software. Then all the user has to do is start the print, and the system will create the part. Once printing, the components are unpacked and the excess powder is extracted. This is done with the safe suction device. For this purpose, we offer a powder separator, which catches the powder during the suction process, the collected powder can then be sieved and reused. After the excess powder has been collected and removed, then the component can be removed from the system for further post-processing.



  • Post-processing

    After printing, the components must be separated from their support structures. For simple small components such as 3d printed dental crowns, the objects can be separated directly from the build platform. For large components, such as multi-unit bridges or partials, thermal post-treatment is mandatory.

    After the annealing process, the components can be easily separated and continue to process.

  • Dental Coating

    Depending on the needs of the patients and their requirements, the components can then be polished and covered with the ceramic veneer. To give the dental prosthesis the most ethically appealing and natural appearance possible, they are then color-matched to the patient.
