Engineered to meet the production needs of mid- and large-sized dental labs, the printer offers productivity enhancements and greater cost-effectiveness for users, according to the company.

It is compatible with all Stratasys dental materials -- VeroDent, VeroDentPlus, and VeroGlaze -- and it adds a soluble support option, previously unavailable on PolyJet dental systems. Soluble support technology allows the easy cleaning of dental parts with fine features, such as small removable die inserts in dental models. It also include automated support removal, which offers advantages for dental labs by enabling lower labor cost per part, according to Stratasys.

Users have the ability to switch between soluble and water jet modes to balance low-cost automation with the occasional need for hands-on support removal.
