The World’s First Filament Printer for Dental Labs
Digitize your dental lab by 3D printing Valplast Flexible Partials, study models, custom impression trays and more.
Use any existing dental 3D scanner to form the basis for your 3D printed restoration. Even integrates with intraoral scanners for a completely digital process.
Use the dental CAD software of your choice to design restorations for 3D printing with r.Pod.
Print your digitally designed dental restoration in the material of your choice with the r.Pod Desktop 3D Printer.
What Is Fused Filament Printing?
THE R.POD DESKTOP 3D PRINTER FROM ARFONA IS THE FIRST DENTAL PRINTER POWERED BY FUSED FILAMENT FABRICATION (FFF) TECHNOLOGY.
Fused filament printing takes a thermoplastic wire (filament) and feeds it through a hot nozzle, where it is melted and deposited layer by layer into a 3-dimensional object.
The ability to use thermoplastic materials in an additive manufacturing process opens up a whole world of possibilities for material selection. The most common filaments to print are nylon, PLA, ABS, polyethylene and TPU.
HOW IT DIFFERS
Filament printing differs from other 3D printing processes in the dental industry because it does not involve the use of photopolymers. The result is that 3D printed restorations created with the r.Pod printer are stronger, last longer and contain no monomers.
Say hello to r.Pod®, the first extrusion powered 3D printer for dental laboratories and technicians. Optimized for printing Valplast® dentures and appliances, custom impression trays, study models and soft tissue gingiva. Watch the trailer here.
