"The ease of use of both the printer and the PreForm software makes it possible to delegate almost all of the pieces of the workflow from post design to packaged aligners. The fact that the printing and fabrication process can be delegated is huge. It is easy enough to use that the orthodontic assistants in the practice can manage this with very little input from the doctor. Interestingly enough and somewhat to my surprise, all of my assistants prefer the digital workflow as opposed to having to deal with impressions, pouring up and trimming models, etc. I think it just makes their life easier."

“The Form 3B is the easiest and most reliable 3D printer we have ever used. We have had 100% successful prints. The most dramatic use has been for clear aligners. Compared to the Form 2, the reliability for large volume printing has been superb. I think the Formlabs printers are the best printer for printing dentures due to the accuracy.”

“Formlabs was one the first printers in our lab. The plug and play ease of use, customer support and intuitive software make it a fool proof method of 3D printing. We continually expand the use of our Formlabs printers into other applications. Being able to successfully print not only models but occlusal guards, indirect bonded trays, orthodontic brackets and attachments make it a necessity for any orthodontic practice that wants to maximize their 3D workflow.”
