Axel’s Opinion On The 3D Printing Technology
As Axel has been in the dental industry for more than two decades, he shares his view on the 3D printing technology business. He asserts, “I can only speak for the dental industry, but 3D printing has been a real gamechanger. The ability of 3D printers to deliver accurate 3D models of dentition has had a major impact on dental technicians’ work, for instance, for adapting prosthesis and implants with the patient’s morphology. The high dental technology requirements regarding precision, safety, and reproducibility of 3D printing solutions differ considerably from those of other application fields.”
