Digital dental technology continues to evolve at such a fast pace that it’s often difficult to keep up. The first tabletop 3-D printers came out just a few years ago. At that time, many thought it would take years for these systems to offer dental applications for everyday use. That perception changed very quickly.
The latest MoonRay 3-D Printer has a patented UV DLP projector called the RayOne. RayOne allows for consistent light wavelengths to be delivered across the build platform for improved resin-curing control and dimensional stability. The MoonRay 3-D also puts an end to costly resin tank maintenance—no more replacing your resin tank regularly or changing the PDMS layer. This is definitely a welcome convenience in our practice. MoonRay’s durable resin tank lasts much longer than the resin tanks of similar 3-D printers, and we all know time is money!
The MoonRay offers more than just diagnostic models. This printer has the ability to fabricate bleaching trays, occlusal guards, surgical guides, digital dentures, indirect bonding trays, and models that make it possible to fabricate clear aligners in-office. The printer offers a growing number of options, all for a relatively affordable price.
The process is straightforward once an STL of the design is acquired. The SprintRay software makes it easy to create support structures—no extensive training or technical experience required. The nesting software enables users to print multiple models, saving time. It features an advanced support-generation algorithm, allowing for strong, correctly placed supports in one click. Easy-tear technology makes support removal convenient, while also reducing the time needed to finish models. You also can add or delete supports to your specifications.
