Stratasys_J700_DentalStratasys Ltd, Minneapolis, announced the addition of the Stratasys J700 Dental 3D Printer to its product offerings. A Poly Jet-based 3D printer, it is intended for production of clear aligner molds.

The Stratasys J700 is designed to provide the orthodontic office with a throughput that matches lab production rates, with more than 400 clear aligner molds per day. The company recommends the use of VeroDent material for quicker production, better accuracy, and minimal post-processing. The Stratasys J700 aims to offer seamless digital workflows for large-volume production of patient-specific aligners on the same tray, while also reducing requirements for manual post-curing or finishing.

According to the company, the Stratasys is easy-to-use and reduces requirements for advanced design expertise. The system includes GrabCAD Print, which allows users to rely on default settings, while providing tips and notifications for a more efficient 3D printing process. Users can work with detailed model views alongside a tray and slice preview to handle all necessary adjustments before going to print.

The Stratasys J700 Dental is expected to be available in late 2017.
