MINNEAPOLIS & REHOVOT, Israel --(Business Wire)--
Stratasys (News - Alert) Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a manufacturer of 3D
printers and materials for personal use, prototyping and production,
today announced it has observed an accelerated adoption of its
Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer, bringing the advantages of digital

Launched just this year, the Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer is an
affordable, simple-to-use desktop system which is designed to enable a
cost-effective entry point to the many benefits of digital dentistry.
This system opens up a new range of possibilities for smaller dental
labs including the ability to significantly shorten delivery times,
increase production capacity, and eliminate bulky model storage - which
may contribute to the expansion of digital dentistry.
Prior to its introduction, due to cost considerations, 3D printers were
only cost effective when utilized in larger labs. Leveraging Stratasys
3D printing technology, dental labs of any size can now efficiently
produce stone models, orthodontic appliances, delivery and positioning
trays, retainers and surgical guides.
"The Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer is contributing to shortening lab
service delivery times for our customers in Brazil; I definitely see it
as a game-changer," explained Dr. Bruno Gribel, CEO of Compass3D Brazil.
"We are witnessing a growing demand for our new Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D
Printer," said Avi Cohen, Director, Global Dental, Stratasys. "As dental
labs constantly explore new ways to grow their business and increase
productivity, they are looking to Stratasys' growing portfolio of
customized 3D printers and unique dental materials. These solution
offerings provide highly accurate and flexible 3D printing technology to
smaller labs and clinics who want to benefit from the future of
Lab owners on Stratasys 3D Printing:
"With industry-leading precision, the Objet30 OrthoDesk enables labs to
create accurate, smooth, orthodontic models more easily than ever
Michael Wright, Laboratory Manager at Orthodent
"With the Objet30 OrthoDesk, orthodontists can now automate the entire
workflow from CAD file to model fabrication, significantly accelerating
production times and increasing capacity."
Kendall Lamp, CEO
of Accutech Laboratory
"The Objet30 OrthoDesk comes with innovative dental printing materials.
Stone models, orthodontic appliances, delivery and positioning trays,
retainers and surgical guides can all be produced significantly faster
and much more accurately than before."
Mike Lomax, President
of Reliable Arts Dental Lab, Costa Rica
The Stratasys Objet-line of Dental 3D printers has received various
awards in recent years, including the Dental Advisor 2013 Top Innovative
Equipment Award, and the Dental Labs Products 2011 Readers Choice Award.
