The main goal of this course is to teach you enough on Saturday that you are printing something on Monday. This course is intended for dentists, clinical team members, and lab staff with little or no 3d printing experience. Buckle your seat belts, this course is going to cover a lot of ground!
Understand the fundamentals of 3D SLA printing – how we go from patients, to polygons, to pixels, to plastic, to prosthetics, one layer at a time.
Learn the most profitable applications of 3d printing – with the right training and delegation, an efficient 3d printing workflow can consistently reduce both chair time and lab fees. We’ll discuss ortho models, aligners, dentures,
Design an articulated model with Medit Model Editor – a very fast workflow to make an articulated set of models to show your patients either their existing condition or a prospective waxup design. It’s also a valuable tool for displaying model-bourne treatments such as aligners or nightguards.
Use Rayware to slice models for printing – once you have a scanned or designed model, it’s time to print. We’ll explore the basics and a few advanced tricks to optimize your 3d printing workflow, including the “VuBase” raft technique for support-free nightguards.
Perform day to day maintenance operations – make 3d printing more streamlined and less messy. Loading, unloading and cleaning the equipment will be discussed. We will discuss the traditional ways to process 3d prints and how to make it even easier and cleaner with ProWash and Procure. I will share low cost, simple tools like a plastic putty knife can be difference makers in your 3d printing.
Design a nightguard in D3Splint – we will design a maxillary flat plane splint live from the previous day’s scans. Time allowing, we will print, process and try-in the nightguard.
Design a surgical guide in BlueSkyPlan – time permitting, we will design a single implant surgical guide live from an actual patient’s model, live. If you have a CBCT scan or STL model, you can bring it to the class. Time permitting, we will print and process it as well.
Make it all look good – a brief introduction to tabletop photography using a smartphone and studio style lighting.
