3D Printing Dental Crown & Bridge Models
The Digital Model Department, Powered by Formlabs
Accurate and consistent dental models are foundational to a great dental laboratory. For dental professionals, the ability to produce 3D printed models is becoming not just a want but a need as the dental world becomes more digital.
The Digital Model Workflow
Collect patient anatomy digitally using an intraoral scanner, or scan a physical model or impression using a desktop scanner.
The scan data is imported into a CAD software where the model is designed and built, and, if needed, a restoration is created.
3. 3D Print
Import the built model files into PreForm print preparation software for print setup and send them easily to a Formlabs printer.
Wash, dry, and post-cure printed parts using Form Wash and Form Cure.
3D Printing Dental Models with the Form 2
Using Dental Model Resin, the Form 2 produces high accuracy removable die models with crisp margins, precise contacts, and consistent occlusion that look and feel like gypsum.

Low Cost, Fast Return on Investment
With a per-model production cost competitive with stone models, the switch to digital now makes sense for your business and the return on investment vs outsourcing is incredibly attractive even for a few digital models a day.
|Print Cost||Form 2|
|Quad Model Kits: Upper, Lower, and Die||$2—$3|
|Full Model Kits: Upper, Lower, and Die||$3—$5|
Fast and Efficient Production
The Form 2, powered by stereolithography (SLA), has a large build plate allowing users to do small quick batches or full build plates for unattended production. As production needs evolve, scale up without spending tens of thousands of dollars for each additional unit.
|Print Capacity||Form 2|
|Quad Model Kits: Upper, Lower, and Die||8 to 10|
|Full Model Kits: Upper, Lower, and Die||4 to 6|
|Quad Kits Printed in an 8-Hour Working Day and Overnight Build||14 to 18|
|Full Kits Printed in an 8-Hour Working Day and Overnight Build||8 to 12|
