First-class 3D printing experience with technology from Rapid Shape and materials from BEGO for dental technology and dental medicine applications

Industry-leading 3D printing materials from BEGO will be available for the innovative
Rapid Shape 3D printer systems in the future.

Rapid Shape, developer and manufacturer of innovative, advanced and process-optimized 3D printers and BEGO, a specialist in the area of development of dental 3D printing materials are announcing their partnership this year at LMT Lab Day in Chicago. Starting in March of this year, customers can work with the advanced Varseo materials from BEGO using the printer models RS
D20+, D30+ and D50+. Along with the proven materials for 3D printing of provisional crowns and bridges as well as dental models and combustible objects, it will of course be possible to use VarseoSmile Crown, BEGOs ceramic-filled hybrid-material for 3D printing of permanent restorations using Rapid Shape. This offers Rapid Shape users the extraordinary option of making
final crowns, inlays, table tops, on-lays and veneers within minutes.

“Our hybrid material provides a rapid supply option with an outstanding priceperformance ratio. The printed restorations stand out also through their aesthetic beauty, durability and tendency to resist discoloration, as well as high degree of comfort for the patient. Extensive scientific studies by well-respected universities and institutes confirm the extraordinary properties of restorations made of VarseoSmile Crown“, reports Thomas Kwiedor, Head of Business Development 3D Cooperations at BEGO.

“With VarseoSmile Crown and the Rapid Shape 3D printing solutions enable dental laboratories and clinics to make restorations with a precise, fast work flow that is machine-supported from start to finish. For larger laboratories, the Rapid Shape printing solutions D30+ and D50+ also provide the option of automated manufacture of parts out of VarseoSmile and VarseoWax materials”, says Andreas Schultheiss, CEO of Rapid Shape. “This partnership and the integration of BEGO materials assures that our users can combine the most modern technology of Rapid Shape and the know-how of BEGO with each other into a outstanding solution.”
