A Simple and Consistent Workflow

From print preparation software to monitoring and automated post-processing tools, Formlabs offers a hassle-free and clean workflow that fits any orthodontic practice or lab.

 

1. Scan

Collect patient anatomy digitally using an intraoral scanner. Send scans to the lab with a digital prescription or to a design station.

2. Design

Import scan data into dental CAD software to design models, restorations, and other indications. Formlabs 3D printers offer direct integration with 3Shape and ExoCAD, and work with all dental CAD software tools that support STL export.

3. Print

Import the designed CAD files into PreForm print preparation software for print setup and send them easily to a Formlabs printer. Swapping materials and resin tanks for different applications on the Form 3B only takes a few seconds. You can start print jobs on the go with Remote Print and never need to worry about running out of material thanks to the automatic resin cartridge system.
 

4. Prepare

Wash, dry, and post-cure printed parts. Our automated solutions, Form Wash and Form Cure, make post-processing simple and allow you to save labor, time and cost.

5. Use

Use the parts directly or manufacture orthodontic appliances like clear aligners or retainers over the 3D printed models using your existing workflow and tools. 

Larger Build Volume, Lower Cost

Form 3B’s large build platform and automatic resin dispensing material cartridges allow for more parts per print job. Orthodontic practices and labs can expect to see 55% less labor and costs compared to competitive 3D printers.
