Two New Reasons To Smile About 3D Printing for Digital Dentistry

This week saw Stratasys release two new dental specific 3D printing items: the Objet Eden260V Dental Advantage 3D Printer for dental and orthodontic labs; and VeroGlaze, a dental material for natural looking dental models with A2 teeth color shade, plus fine details and resolution. These exciting new releases are set to help dental labs make the leap to advanced digital dentistry and service their customers faster, consistently and more accurately than ever before.

The new Objet Eden260V Dental Advantage 3D Printer provides a lower cost entry to advanced digital dentistry. This means labs can rapidly produce dental and orthodontic appliances, replacing time-consuming manual models and model-making with intraoral scanner output and 3D printing.
Avi Cohen, Director of Global Dental at Stratasys, said:  
“The Objet Eden260V Dental Advantage can create a wide range of dental models, surgical guides, positioning trays and orthodontic appliances significantly faster than hand milling, and can also be used to 3D print many different models all at once on a build tray that’s 20% to 40%  larger than alternative digital dental  systems.”
This is a clear advantage for increasing production capacity and operational costs, especially since no indepth special skills or computing knowledge are needed by technicians to run it.
But speed isn’t the only benefit of the Objet Eden260V Dental Advantage, it also produces accurate and consistent models.

VeroGlaze is a new dental specific Objet PolyJet material for precise A2 teeth colour shade for a more natural look. It can be used in conjunction with all open intra-oral, impression and plaster scanners and is optimized or 3D printing models for crowns, bridge restorations, diagnostic wax-ups and veneer try-in.
“Apearance and accuracy are everything in our business and we’re delighted with the details and resolution of the models being produced on our Objet Eden260V 3D Printer with the new VeroGlaze,” says Yves Dossche, manager of Remedent in Belgium, a leading manufacturer of veneers for the dental industry.

With these new introductions, there’s no better  time to make the move into digital dentistry. To speak to your local award-winning Stratasys distributor contact Objective3D.

Commodore Ute to US: 100,000 votes needed!

According to The Age Drive and an article by Barry Park, we are again set to export our Commodore Ute to the US.

The article is as follows:

US website rallies to GM's Twitter call of 'If you ask for an El Camino ute, we'll do it'.

An off-the-cuff quip from General Motors' newly appointed chief marketing officer could be just the thing to help Holden's cause to sell the Commodore ute in the US.

Joel Ewanick, who made the jump from Hyundai to the US car maker late last year, recently joined the social networking service Twitter. He soon started interacting with Chevrolet fans, with many of them asking for the car maker to re-introduce a vehicle based on a cross between a truck (ute) and a car.

In response to one passionate request for a new-age El Camino, Ewanick wrote: ''Well, we need you and 100,000 more of your best friends.''

Canberra para-athlete Scott Reardon wins gold with 3D Printed Spike Plates

Canberra para-athlete Scott Reardon has sprinted his way to gold at the IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha with victory in the T42 100m for leg amputees.

The fastest qualifier coming into the finals, Reardon, using a 3D Printed Spike Plate, got his nose in front to stop the clock in a time of 12.13 seconds - a mere one-hundredth of a second in front of Russia's Anton Prokhorov.
It was sweet revenge for Reardon, the 25-year-old having to share the gold medal two years ago at the world championships in Lyon in 2013 with Germany's Heinrich Popow​.
"You come to championships to win championships and that's the most important thing," Reardon said.
"I probably didn't get the time I wanted, but when people look back, how I got there won't matter. "It will just show me as world champion, and that's so exciting."
The result is the culmination of more than a decade of determination and training.

The Spike Plates which Reardon used in the …
