3D printing company?Materialise?has developed a version of its software?for dental labs.

The dental module for Magics will help dental technicians improve and automate their 3D printing preparation workflow, the company said.

‘3D printing has become well established within dentistry,’ said Volker?Schillen, market innovation manager at?Materialise. ‘Today, many dental labs have their own printers and create custom parts for dental restoration daily. Their next goal is optimizing the workflow so dental specialists can reduce the amount of time spent manually preparing designs to be printed.’

According to Materialise, the software can automate printing preparation steps such as labeling, nesting, and generating support structures. The module also offers customised processing profiles.
