Dentistry Today


The 3D Systems DMP Dental 100 metal 3-D printer is designed for superior quality, versatility, and throughput in entry-level dental applications. According to the company, it’s also designed for a maximum price/performance ratio, producing high-quality metal dental prostheses in a business-boosting digital workflow.

The DMP Dental 100 can print up to 90 crown copings in less than four hours in a single print run, with only 25 minutes required for heat treatment. Its outstanding surface quality means minimal post-processing is required, 3D Systems says, and a typical print accuracy of 50 µm ensures an exceptional fit for crown copings, bridges, suprastructures, and partial frames.

To streamline the digital dentistry workflow, the DMP Dental 100 comes with LaserForm CoCr (C) material (ISO 13485, ISO 9001, FDA, and CE qualified) and includes a high-performance 3D Systems software solution for managing the manufacture of fixed and removable dental prostheses. 

3D Systems believes the resulting accelerated throughput of the DMP Dental 100 will give dental labs a competitive edge for quick turnaround jobs and more flexibility to respond to customer orders. The DMP Dental 100 is available immediately.
