FIRST RESULTS OF THE DENTAL PROJECT IN THE FIELDLAB MULTI-MATERIAL 3D

This Summer Fieldlab Multi-Material 3D partners NextDent, Océ- a Canon Company, Brightlands Materials Center and AMSYSTEMS Center have developed a 3D printer, the Multi Material 3D Test Printer (MM3DTP).

The resins for this process are developed by NextDent, a 3D Systems company, and Brightlands Materials Center. The controlling of the MM3DTP printer is done by Van Mierlo Ingenieursbureau. With this printer the partners aim to develop an integrated 3D Workflow and print strategy to create full colour products . To show the abilities of this 3D printer Océ has printed the first samples this set-up (see the pictures below).

What’s next
The next step is to combine Océ’s inkjet technology with the Lepus Next Gen Printer of AMSYSTEMS Center. This integration is required to show the feasibility of printing full colour dental elements. The resins for this process are developed by NextDent, a 3D Systems company, and Brightlands Materials Center. The partners strive to achieve this by next year, July 2019. Due to the good results the partners are looking forward to the follow up.
