Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Nexa3D, the maker of ultrafast 3D printers, expanded its dental 3D printing solutions, set to exhibit at the upcoming LMT Lab Day in Chicago, IL, marking the company’s commitment to the dental space. Nexa3D offers next-generation productive lab and clinic digital solutions with accurate and affordable dental portfolio resins and end-to-end workflow, featuring proven accuracy and reliability for higher productivity. The large-format NXD 200 3D printer, designed specifically for high-throughput dental 3D printing applications, utilizes Nexa3D’s patented LSPc technology.

The NXD 200 delivers the highest productivity, precision, and performance for the dental market. With a large-format 8.5L build volume, the NXD 200 is capable of creating dozens of dental molds and models simultaneously at high resolution and lower per-part cost. Partner Keystone Industries’ aligners and other patient-specific dental products come to life reliably, quickly, and repeatably, ensuring fast-tracked ROI. The NXD 200 comes with accelerated part-to-print capabilities, including fully integrated build set-up and print management software that can prepare part files for printing in half the time of other solutions. The printer is also fully interoperable with all leading digital dental workflows and providers. The NXD 200 is available immediately.

“This is the definition of higher throughput,” Keystone Industries 3D printing engineer and lab manager Benjamin Taylor said of the NXD 200. “If you run the printer all day, you’re looking at over 200 splints in an eight-hour day, while most other dental printers would need significantly more time to achieve that volume of parts.” The XiP desktop 3D printer, the newest addition to the Nexa3D portfolio, brings ultra-fast print speeds and pixel-perfect precision at a smaller footprint. Dental labs, offices, and clinics will find the perfect fit for dental 3D printing on the desktop. Easy material handling, a user-friendly interface, and an all-in-one post-processing setup enable dental users to access advanced capabilities affordably and reliably. The new system is scheduled to begin shipping in Q2 of 2022.

Nexa3D will also be exhibiting biocompatible, dental-specific resins from Keystone Industries, including KeyModel Ultra, KeySplint Soft, KeySplint Hard, KeyGuide, and KeyTray. These validated and familiar materials enable fast, accurate, and repeatable 3D printing of aligners, dental models, surgical guides, custom trays, nightguards, splints, and more. Nexa3D solutions utilize reliable and user-friendly NexaX software as well as offer the option of full integration with Oqton software. Dental labs and aligner manufacturers can now access Oqton software to automate their entire workflow from scheduling to tracking and tracing all actions across the entire dental manufacturing process, enjoying higher throughput and lower costs without compromising on print quality.

Finishing parts with washing and curing ensures consistent mechanical properties. For the NXD 200, the Nexa3D xWash and xCure post-processing systems enhance the productivity started with ultrafast 3D printing. The xCure is capable of curing four build plates at a time, curing more parts at once than comparable cure systems, and features dual wavelength for a greater depth of cure each run, as well as an LED light system. The XiP pairs with an all-in-one wash-and-cure system that is also sized for desktop use to finish parts in a small footprint.

“3D printing has made dental applications faster and more accurate than ever before,” said Jim Zarzour, Nexa3D Head of Dental Solutions. “Nexa3D’s technology takes that speed, repeatability, and precision a step further with the NXD 200’s ability to print up to a model a minute without sacrificing resolution. The XiP takes advanced capabilities to the desktop, ready to superpower smaller labs and clinics. Dental labs and manufacturers are seeing much greater productivity thanks to Nexa3D’s reliable and user-friendly tools.”

Nexa3D’s team will be highlighting this end-to-end dental workflow at LMT Lab Day, taking place at the Hyatt Regency Chicago from February 24-26.
