Below is a list of third-party 3D printers which have been validated for use with CS Model+ v5:

NextDent 5100

Powered by Figure 4® technology, the NextDent™ 5100 facilitates high-speed 3D printing for production of dental appliances and sacrificial castings. This revolutionary solution features an industry-defining value proposition that combines best-in-class speed and performance at an accessible price point for any provider.

SprintRay Pro 95 3D Printer

We made SprintRay Pro the most user-friendly, powerful and reliable desktop printer in dentistry. It features a 216 square centimeter platform and print speeds up to 5 centimeters per hour for an incredible boost in productivity. A 7” touchscreen with a powerful on-board computer provide an easy and reliable experience.

Formlabs Form 3B

The Form 3B is an advanced desktop 3D printer optimized for dental and biocompatible materials. Our precise, reliable ecosystem takes the guesswork out of dental fabrication and offers a continuous throughput that you can rely on. With little initial investment, the Form 3B enables orthodontic practices and labs to print models for clear aligner and retainer production.

Rapid Shape D30+ Ortho

The D30+ ortho is a high-quality DLP printer featuring a long lifetime at an attractive price level. Tailor made for ortho indications, this system features an extra large build area and produces validated ortho models and individual trays. Furthermore, the temperature controlled resin reservoir provides process stability. The Automatic Separation Module (ASM) for D30+ ortho enables continuous operation without any manual effort to take off the parts from the platform (patent pending).


Expressly developed for professional dental applications, XFAB 3500PD combines precision with high throughput performances, making it perfect for any professional. Equipped with advanced Nauta and Fictor software for adjusting print parameters, it is ideal for many applications, including orthodontic arches for thermoformed aligners.

Structo DentaForm

Built using Structo’s proprietary Mask Stereolithography (MSLA) technology, the Structo DentaForm is designed for high throughput round-the-clock production of clear aligner and orthodontic models. With the ability to print up to 9 arches (horizontal) in 22 minutes, it is unmatched in its price category. With Structo's custom automation solutions, DentaForm is also scalable.

We are excited to provide you with this new functionality in CS Model+ v5 and look forward to hearing stories about your success in treating patients in your practice with in-house aligners.
