Minneapolis, MN; Rehovot, Israel – March 12, 2013 - Stratasys, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a leading manufacturer of 3D printers and production systems for prototyping and manufacturing, today announced the launch of the Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer, specially designed for smaller orthodontic labs and clinics. The Objet30 OrthoDesk now makes digital orthodontics accessible for facilities of all sizes.

Digital orthodontics is rapidly becoming the industry standard because of its many business advantages including the ability to significantly shorten delivery times, increase production capacity and eliminate bulky model storage. Until today, due to cost considerations, 3D printers have only been practical for larger labs.

Affordable and simple-to-use, Objet30 OrthoDesk conveniently fits on a desktop in any lab, With industry-leading precision, it enables orthodontists to create accurate, smooth, orthodontic models more easily than ever before. Now orthodontists can automate the entire workflow from CAD file to model fabrication, significantly accelerating production times and increasing capacity. By transitioning to a fully digital workflow, the process of physical impressions can be eliminated as well, improving patient satisfaction. Models can now be stored digitally, so bulky physical models no longer need to be saved.

“Objet30 OrthoDesk is great for smaller labs. It offers efficiency, quality and accuracy in a convenient desktop size which is just right for us,” said Ana L. Marin, Lab Owner, ARCAD Lab. “It’s enabling us to expand our services to a wider range of customers. I definitely see Objet30 OrthoDesk as a game-changer.”

“Stratasys continues to make digital orthodontics happen, one lab and clinic at a time,” said Avi Cohen, Director of Global Dental at Stratasys. “We are excited to launch the Objet30 OrthoDesk and bring the most accurate 3D printing technology to all the smaller labs and clinics who want to benefit from the future of orthodontics, today.”

The Objet30 OrthoDesk combines accurate, precise 3D printing technology with a small desktop footprint. It comes with specialized dental printing materials in convenient sealed cartridges. Stone models, orthodontic appliances, delivery and positioning trays, clear aligners, retainers and surgical guides can all be produced significantly faster and much more accurately than before. Based on patented PolyJet® 3D Printing technology, Objet30 OrthoDesk jets ultrafine layers of material for smooth, accurate models. As many as 20 models can be created with every print run.
