As a very early adopter of 3D printing, I started using the technology long before it had the role it does now in Dentistry. Even though I am a big fan of the 3D printing, I also believe that well trained hands can do the most amazing tasks in this world. I will show you the evolution and varieties of printing technology, and also show you how I have integrated the technology in a “boutique”, “high end” scenario. And how I have achieved a very harmonious environment where science, craftsmanship and technology all work together.
Done right, 3D printing can improve many aspects of our job, while opening new opportunities. Done wrong, it's a terrible, wasteful experiment. Let my pain be your gain, and learn how to marry this technology with your work. This balance of technology and craftsmanship creates its own form of art. That is why I call this course the “ART” of 3D printing. I want to show you the best ways to use it,
without loosing any quality or craftsmanship.
What to look for and navigate the future of 3D printing
Where to start if you are just beginning. And what to get if you want to go pro today.
Ways 3D printing can open new opportunities and workflows
Most importantly, how to incorporate 3D printing without loosing anything or anyone
