Micron 3D Printer: "Largest desktop build plate plus the most accurate distortion-free prints available in dentistry."
The Micron P305 Dental 3D Printer is an entirely new technology in 3D printing, offering both the largest build area and the most accurate printing available in a desktop solution. With existing 3d printer technologies (laser and dlp), as you increase the build area, you lose either accuracy or speed or both. The P305, however, employs a new masked LCD light engine technology that addresses this fundamental problem with 3D printers.
The table below compares some of the new features of our P300 Dental 3D Printer to the Formlabs Form2 sold by Henry Schein and the Sprintray Moonray D sold by Patterson Dental.
