Formlabs, a 3D printing company, is launching a new business unit, 3D printer and materials aimed at the dental market.
Specifically, Formlabs launched the Form 3B printer, which is designed to streamline the processing of custom dental implants. Formlabs has printed 13 million dental parts on the Form 2 and is hoping to scale more with its next printer for the dental market.
Formlabs' approach with the Form 3B is to use one printer for more than 10 dental applications so customers can switch between materials. Use cases would include crown and bridge models, clear aligner and retainer models, surgical guides and dentures with various tooth shades. Formlabs is also adding a dental service plan for training an support.
