The Objet30 Dental Prime 3D printer from Stratasys designed for producing models and appliances in smaller dental and orthodontic labs. The printer offers two modes: high quality and high speed. The high-quality mode is said to 3D print models with good surface finish in 16-micron layers. This mode is suitable for producing the intricate, delicate features required for precise fittings on crown, bridge and prosthetic models. Meanwhile, the high-speed mode 3D prints at accelerated speeds in 28-micron layers to produce orthodontic models and surgical guides with increased productivity. Together, these two print modes enable smaller labs to produce a wider range of dental and orthodontic appliances in-house. According to Stratasys, benefits include increased productivity and shorter delivery times.

The 3D printer can be used with three PolyJet materials: VeroDentPlus (MED690), a dark beige material with strength, accuracy and durability for intricate models; Clear Bio-compatible (MED610), a medically approved material for temporary in-mouth placement suitable for producing surgical guides and investment casting for removable partial denture (RPD) frames; and VeroGlaze (MED620, an opaque biocompatible material with A2 shading for accurate color matching in veneer try-ins and other applications.
