Medical image segmentation is the initial workflow process that includes isolating DICOM medical images, such as CT scans or MRI scans, into distinct structures or regions of interest (ROI). The goal for segmenting this type of data is to identify and explore areas of the anatomy, whether it’s tissue, cardiovascular, or bone. For example, virtually positioning CAD implants or creating water-tight mesh files for 3D printing patient-specific anatomical models.
PolyJet™ technology continues to push the boundaries of what is possible using traditional 3D printing. With its ability to quickly produce smooth and highly detailed parts, PolyJet has become an invaluable source for rapid prototyping and beyond.
The world of dental prosthetics is on the cusp of a significant transformation, all thanks to Stratasys, a global leader in polymer 3D printing solutions. Stratasys recently unveiled an innovative product set to redefine the way dental laboratories approach the fabrication of dentures: TrueDent™. This groundbreaking 3D printed denture technology is primed to address the increasing challenges faced by dental laboratories in catering to the growing prosthetic needs of edentulous patients.
While Stratasys PolyJet technology can create extremely realistic, multi-material anatomical models and functional parts for the dental industry, presently, there are few defined solutions for segmenting the teeth from the gums of a typical stone model or processed intraoral scan. This segmentation is a prerequisite for applying a different color/material to each element individually.
The new Stratasys J35 Pro PolyJet 3D printer was introduced to the world earlier this year, and it is quickly becoming one of the most talked about professional-grade, multi-material 3D printers today. One hot topic of discussion surrounds material options, specifically what materials the system can run and how can they be mixed and matched to provide different results. This article will attempt to bring the J35 Pro material configurations into clearer focus.
VeroUltra White and VeroUltra Black are the newest formulations of Vero opaque photopolymer resins compatible with Stratasys J-Series PolyJet 3D printers. In this article, we explore these new material developments and discover how they make Stratasys' best-in-class, highly professional, full-color models...even better.
Stratasys recently added several new 3D printers to their portfolio, including the highly anticipated J35 Pro - a multi-material, desktop PolyJet 3D printer offered by the leader in professional additive manufacturing solutions. The J35 Pro is an affordable office-friendly and user-friendly desktop 3D Printer - but don't let its small size fool you. It may have a compact frame, but its possibilities are endless - from small and delicate models to fully-functional engineering prototypes.
