EDITMICROEDU.jpgEnvisionTEC’s Perfactory® Micro Ortho offers a compact professional desktop 3D printer with extremely high resolution. It is a low cost, easy maintenance and user friendly desktop 3D manufacturing system, designed for producing highly accurate dental models for use in manufacturing high quality orthodontic appliances in an office environment. The surface quality of the printed models allows for a clear aligner to be produced with no signs of stairstepping. With a build envelope of 4″ x 3″ x 4″, the Perfactory® Micro Ortho can build up to 3 full arch models flat down in 45 minutes or up to 7 models straight up in less than 4 hours with an average price per full arch ranging from $3 to $5.

Orchestrate 3D has designed the first fully integrated digital orthodontic software solution by orthodontists, for orthodontists. The software is a complete package, allowing the orthodontist to scan the dentition, diagnose the patient, design an array of orthodontic appliances and send the final design directly to the 3D printer for production. This comprehensive 3D digital system gives orthodontists complete control and autonomy over the 3D imaging, diagnosis, design and 3D printing of their cases all within their office and at a fraction of the cost.
