Stratasys recently introduced the J3 DentaJet 3D printer, an entry-level, multi-material printer that enables dental labs to produce extremely accurate mixed applications in a single tray simultaneously.
“This printer is a great value for smaller dental labs that have previously been limited to small, single-material, table-top 3D printers and are ready to level up their dental production to offer higher-quality digital dental products,” said Ronen Lebi, vice president of dental at Stratasys. “Adding a J3 DentaJet 3D printer can help labs produce best-in-class dental applications that require extreme accuracy at scale as demand is growing.”
The J3 DentaJet 3D printer features biocompatible resins (clear, rigid, and flexible) and can create mixed parts for crown and bridge models, implantology (model, surgical guides, and gingiva masks), and orthodontic models, all in the same print job. Its large circular build tray and high-speed mode can help labs scale and boost output. PolyJet, Stratasys’ proprietary jetting technology, cures the printed parts during the print process, minimizing post-processing. As a result, lab personnel no longer need to handle uncured resin, improving workplace safety.
“We find PolyJet to be the best available technology for printing surgical guides, especially ones that require complex geometries such as stackable guides. Other technologies just can’t achieve the same level of precision and accuracy,” said Ankush Venkatesh, intrapreneur, additive manufacturing, Glidewell Dental. “The J3 DentaJet enabled us to access the most advanced printing technology, packaged in a small footprint with a large print capacity.”
The J3 DentaJet joins the J5 DentaJet and Origin One Dental as part of the Stratasys suite of dental-specific 3D printers that can all be operated and managed through GrabCAD Print, Stratasys’ intuitive software for streamlining print preparation workflow. The new printer will be shown at the LMT Lab Day Chicago, February 23-25, 2023 and the IDS global trade fair in Cologne, Germany, March 14-18, 2023. Stratasys is already accepting orders for the printer, which are expected to ship in March.
