EnvisionTEC Micro DGP 3D Printer Now Prints Drill Guides Designed with 3Shape Implant Studio™

Dearborn, Michigan, February 26, 2015 – EnvisionTEC announces that drill guides designed using 3Shape Implant Studio™ software can now be 3D printed out on EnvisionTEC’s Micro DGP (Drill Guide Printer).

The integration between the two companies enables EnvisionTEC’s Micro DGP to print out Implant Studio™- exported STL model drill guides. The drill guides are printed using Clear Guide M 3D printer material from EnvisionTEC.

Dental professionals design the guides using 3Shape Implant Studio™ software. The guides are based on previously approved planning of the implant position before implant surgery by, for example, the dentist. The drill guides are then used to direct drilling during the dental implant surgery enabling a predictable and faster implant treatment.

3D printing of drill guides creates a more cost-efficient means for manufacturing the guides. Cost effectiveness that will enable more dental professionals to take advantage of the benefits of using guided surgery.

“EnvisionTEC Micro DGP and its Clear Guide M materials have created a successful integration with our Implant Studio™ software. The seamless integration enables more and more dental professionals to take advantage of precision-printed drill guides during implant procedures. Drill guides that are produced accurately and at a cost-effective price,” says Allan Junge Hyldal, VP Orthodontics and Implantology, 3Shape.

“We are very pleased to offer our dental and dental lab customers a proven solution for manufacturing surgical guides now using the EnvisionTEC Micro DGP combined with 3Shape’s Implant Studio software, a solution that combines the latest products from two leading providers in digital dentistry, forming a powerful and affordable manufacturing tool,” said Doug Statham, Director of Dental Channel Sales in North America, EnvisionTEC.
