In-House 3D Printing of Surgical Guide at Limited Cost

Course Highlight: 3D Printing, Digital Dentistry, CBCT, “Meshmixer”, “BlueSkyPlan”, Guided Surgery

With the advent of CBCT, intraoral scanner, desktop scanner, 3D printer and milling machine, different implant companies develop their digital workflows including numerous proprietary implant planning software, guided surgery kits and expensive 3D printers. However, the users either have to buy the closed system software with annual fee or outsource the task to the implant companies producing the surgical guide at a significant cost.

After taking this Hands-On course, you will consider stepping away from the implant companies and expand your vision with ‘open’ and ‘free’ implant planning software in the boom of digital dentistry. I will also show you how to print your surgical guide with ANY implant systems on-site. You don’t need to change your implant systems. Nothing is sold in the course. I will also show you where to get a low-cost desktop 3D printer (different from 2019).
