NextDent 5100 wins 3D magazine award

3D Systems has been awarded the 2018 Healthcare Application of the Year by the publication ‘3D Printing Industry’ for its NextDent 5100 digital dentistry solution.

The winners, including individuals and enterprises focused on additive manufacturing and 3D printing, were nominated and voted on by the publication’s readers. For 2018, award nominations increased 35 percent, and voting also surpassed prior years.

“This award recognizes a momentous shift in the market for digital dentistry, as there is a tremendous growth opportunity for dental 3D printing,” said Rik Jacobs, vice president, general manager, dental, 3D Systems.

In February, 3D Systems unveiled the NextDent 5100 and 18 new NextDent resins – bringing the NextDent portfolio to 30 materials.

The NextDent 5100 solution is currently in beta testing with select customers with general availability planned for Summer 2018.
