From DWS, DigitalWax is a range of rapid prototyping systems that use stereolithography to create 3D models. A...See more laser source emits ultraviolet rays to solidify a proprietary photosensitive resin layer by layer, and the translation of a digital 3D model into a perfect solid object takes just a few hours. The RF series allows high-performance direct casting for the production of high-definition crowns, bridges and partials; the RD series is suitable for the production of stone models directly from intraoral and impression digital scanning systems.

The new RF material series is specifically developed for SLA printing of crowns, bridges and partial frameworks. The RD resin is used for the production of models directly from intraoral scanners.
The number of laboratories declined 12.5%, from approximately 12,000 to 10,500. The number of GPs and prosthodontists increased 17%, from 133,623 to 156,011. This means the ratio of dentists to labs increased from 11:1 to 15:1.
