Clear Aligner Models

In-office fabrication of clear aligners using 3D printed models.

Offer clear aligners in-office to give patients the treatment they want at a price they can afford. This application allows you to rapidly see a return on your investment due to the significant cost savings compared to aligner labs.
When used in conjunction with a thermoforming machine and orthodontic CAD software, full aligner treatments can be fabricated in a single day. Though you will not directly 3D print clear aligners themselves, this process significantly reduces lead times.

Key Benefits

  • Produce 4 upper and 4 lower aligner trays with one batch of printed models
  • Produce bleaching trays at any stage of the orthodontic treatment plan
  • Significant cost savings compared to aligner vendor labs

Clear Retainers (Essix)

Clear retainers are a common post-treatment appliance that is frequently lost or broken. Provide outstanding patient benefit by creating a replacement same- or next-day for only a few euros in materials cost. Similar to the method used to 3D print aligners, this can provide an outstanding benefit to your patient with minimal additional cost.

Import your intraoral scan into RayWare Pro and make it printable with the click of a button. Use SprintRay Pro to fabricate the model in less than 30 minutes, then post-process. Thermoform the aligners over the printed model and trim, then they are ready for your patient.


Digital Bracket Removal

Deliver patient delight and reduce followup appointments by having a retainer premade for every bracket removal appointment. Provide a scan of the patient’s dentition with braces, and our team will digitally remove them, providing you with a model that you can print and use to thermoform a clear retainer.

3D Printing Models for Clear Aligners

With 3D printing, you can have as much control over the process as you’d like. Use 3rd party software to plan the whole treatment plan yourself or use a service provider and simply perform a clincheck and approve.


Our large selection of dental printing materials are designed to get the most out of SprintRay 3D printers. Whether you’re using resins from SprintRay or one of our growing list of materials partners, you’ll receive highly-accurate, outstanding results thanks to our extensive validation process.


SprintRay Die and Model 2 Gray

Rapidly 3D Print Models for Aligner Production

  • Improved flexural modulus and strength
  • Up to 10% faster print speeds
  • Print up to eight full arch models in just 15 minutes
  • High-contrast color for maximum visibility of small details
  • Easy to separate from thermoforming materials

SprintRay Die & Model 2 represents a big step forward in dental modelling materials. Our new gray color offers extremely high color contrast to help illustrate details. This new resin features almost no pigment settling, which means you can spend more time printing and less time mixing. Improved adhesion to the build plate is matched by an increase in flexural modulus and strength, providing higher success rates and a reduced chance of breakage.

A reduced odor improves the quality of life for 3D printing models for an overall experience that your practice staff will love. Die & Model 2 Gray features an improved color tone, making it easier than ever to use digital technology to perform advanced restorative dentistry. With rapid, repeatable results that are easier than ever to use, Die & Model 2 Gray is helping to bring dental 3D printing into dental practices everywhere.
