3D Printers Hard at Work in Dental Labs

Though 3D printing has come into the strong limelight in recent years, it’s a technological innovation that can actually be traced back several decades into the past. Initially, in the 80s, what we know today as the 3D printer was referred to as a Rapid Prototyping technology.

While initially only designed to create prototypes for working products, hence the name, these prototyping technologies developed into powerhouses for the future of high-tech manufacturing. Today, the 3D printing industry has grown palatable to even dentistry professionals.

3D printing’s contribution to the dental industry has been made all the more possible due to the increased efficiency of CAD software. With CAD software, 3D software users have the ability to take raw scan data for any dentistry tool, such as dental flossers, and have a working implement by the end of the day.

These machines have proven themselves to be highly accurate and dependable in more industries than one, and the dental industry just so happens to be one that stands to benefit even more than most from the possibilities.

In the most ideal scenarios, dental patients have access to a full range of freely adjustable metrics to customize the exact specifications of their most-needed orthodontic applications.

Every different patient has their own unique needs for the right kind of dental treatment based on their personal dental needs, which makes the precision of 3D printing stand out as a significant advantage for the patient-focused care.

To begin most dentistry-focused 3D printing products, there has to be an initial oral scanning process. Thanks to a thorough scanning process, every crown and bridge gets produced with perfect consideration of the precise fitting needs for the patient in question.

In the past, it might have been necessary for dental labs to go through an extensive processing of modeling patients’ teeth completely manually. While it was certainly feasible for patients’ teeth to be manually molded before, the capability of undergoing such a process digitally leaves a much smaller margin of error in general.

While these orthodontic applications are being produced, the overall labor load on the dental industry is being lifted at the same time. The heavy lifting made possible by 3D printing for creating state of the art applications gives the industry much more leg room to focus heavier manpower in other areas without sacrificing too much efficiency in the process; quite the opposite, as a matter of fact.

More than one 3D printing manufacturer has stepped up to the plate in order to advance 3D printing tools for the next level of dental industry proficiency. Axsys, a prominent dental industry CAD manufacturer, has made the announcement of a Reseller Agreement with DWS Systems, a manufacturer of many different 3D printing materials.

In addition to the Reseller Agreement with DWS Systems, Axsys has also announced ambitions to release a special dfab 3D printing system. With the system, there are hopes that patients can be given the effects of long-term dental restorations with just a one-time appointment.

iPhone Unlock: What You Need To Know

To unlock iPhone gadgets can be costly, that is why it is best to make sure that once you strike a deal with a company to unlock your iPhone, you best be critical about it.

I had a recent chat with a friend who loves technology and her iPhone. She always makes it a point to blog about her new gadgets, not just because she wants to impress readers on how she could afford expensive new tech, but because she herself sometimes becomes a victim of different scams and fraudulent activities that supposedly involve new ways of “improving” gadgets for “free.”

As a means of imparting the lessons she had to learn the hard way, she would blog about it and inform as much people as she can. She believes that the more she talks about her gadgets and experiences, the more people can be informed.

The latest encounter she had was when she came across a site that offered to unlock iPhone networks. She was ecstatic, because she has been planning to switch service provider, but her iPhone 4 is “locked,” therefore, she can’t  actually change provider that easily.

The site that claims to unlock iPhone gadgets  offer a “cheaper” price. Her desire to have her phone unlocked overpowered her capability to review everything first before jumping into the deal.

So, she had her phone undergo the process for iPhone unlocking and just waited. When she got it back, it was working fine at first. Until after 3 days, the phone won’t recognize her new number. Apparently, the “experts” who unlocked her phone, did not do a very good job. When she tried to complain, they just told her that she’ll have to pay the fee again if she wants the work re-done.

In the end, the encounter was a waste of money. She was so hooked and happy because it was cheaper, only to end up spending for nothing, which is worse than spending more for a better service.

To comfort her from the awful feeling of being scammed, I gave her a link to a site that list iPhone unlocking experts who could actually get the job done right. She chose one that the blog rated the highest, and after a couple of days, she got her iPhone back, no more problems.

When you are in the Internet and you search for legitimate services, it is very difficult to directly put your faith in the first page that pops out the search. There are lots of ways to get people to believe that a site is legitimate and there is no stopping their capacity to do that. What we can do is be more vigilant about it, which my friend had to learn the hard way.

Her story is already up on her blog and a lot of people who came across it are thanking her for warning fellow internet users, as well as for providing the same link I gave her.

Hopefully, more people become more wary about who to trust in the internet, and to be more responsible when it comes to handling gadgets. These things do not come cheap, and it would be such a waste of resources to ruin your gadget because of bad investment.
