This page is a diary in some sense. We hope to help guide and inform you on the different technologies that we have used or developed. Each category will give some information on what we have found to be the most opportunistic or cutting edge technology. We hope to continuously add to this section as we progress.
Design- We have used a number of different software to help design cases and parts.
Dental: BlueSkyBio is hands down one of the best software to use. You can design Dentures, Crowns, Surgical guides, CBCT models, and even have the ability to create your own Aligner treatment plan. Some features of the software are free while others charge for an export fee. Still very versatile software.

You might need to join blueskybio group on facebook to view the last one.
CAD: When technical design is required a large number of specifications are needed. Having such requirements makes the project difficult because the designer must treat the project like their own. By providing a complete service of scan, design and manufacturing all in one service bureaus have become very popular.
Profession Designer: 3D Proven Systems
ZBrush: When you need to design an abstract piece it can be difficult to render a digital image. Zbrush has a free version and a paid full version.
FullContour: Is a dental Design company that provides design for any of your dental needs. Working with them it is clear that they can accommodate for anything you might be looking for. The following is a link to their website: https://app.fullcontour.com/#/organizations/3/locations/1049/price-list
Manufacturing: Anycubic photon has to be one of the best deals we have come across. We have sampled a variety of printers and this is the most affordable with the highest resolution printer that is still very user friendly. The printer over is a bit small, but it makes it easy to scale the printer. Coming in around $500 its an affordable option. The only issue I had was leveling the platform, but after a few attempts it becomes a breeze.
If you have facebook join the Anycubic Photon Dental group to get a lot of information with plenty of support
We are currently test out the limits of this printer and will be seeing if we can have it print 6 times faster using a hyper sensitive resin. I will keep an update on this.
