Our most complete 3D printing resource to date.
We created this ebook to bring together our many years of dental 3D printing experience. It’s the culmination of all our time spent selling, supporting, and building products for digital dentistry. From simple tips to full-blown articles about 3D printing technology, we hope you’ll find it helpful no matter where you are on your dental 3D printing journey.

Digital Dentistry and the 3D Printing Workflow

Implementing 3D printing into the dental practice has never been easier. Digital dentistry technologies such as intraoral scanners and dental CAD software easily integrate with SprintRay products thanks to the universally-accepted .STL file format for 3D models. Once you’ve left the messy impression trays and stone dental models behind, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without in-office 3D printing.


In-office Treatment Design

For maximum speed and flexibility, design dental appliances for treatment in your office using the dental CAD software of your choosing.

Partner Treatment Design

Leverage your existing lab relationship or find a design partner to take care of this step for you, sending you digital files that are ready for print.
