Glidewell partners with Objet Geometries on 3D models

As part of their ongoing technology development relationship, Objet Geometries provided Glidewell Laboratories with the ability to manufacturer custom-printed models and other precision dental parts using its Eden 3D printing systems.

Objet and Glidewell have long held a collaborative relationship for implementing Objet's ultrathin layer, high-resolution 3D printing systems on the laboratory production floor, the companies explained in a press release. Objet's printed parts were extensively tested and evaluated by Glidewell Laboratories. After comprehensive testing by Glidewell's 66-person R&D team, the printed parts for production were approved and qualified.

Using Objet's 3D printing systems, dentists and dental laboratories will be able to electronically submit their cases to Glidewell Laboratories, where the patterns and models are designed and printed, reducing shipping costs and improving turnaround times, the companies noted.
