Manufacturer of 3D printing solutions Ackuretta has announced a series of upgrades to it ALPHA AI slicing software aimed at simplifying dental 3D printing workflows for its users.
With the new ALPHA AI Premium, users can now take advantage of auto-orientation and AI generated support building with upgraded features including three new compatible applications — denture base, denture teeth, and removable die. These upgraded features are in addition to previously added compatible dental applications including hollow/solid model, splint, crown, bridge, and surgical guide.
The upgrade also provides user the ability to access ALPHA AI on four devices at the same time.
Furthermore, new users are now able to sign up for ALPHA AI Premium with a brand new 2-year subscription option matching the Ackuretta SOL’s extended warranty length available via Ackuretta Concierge. New users will now also get an extra month free after signing up for a 1-year or 2-year subscription.
By making orientation, stacking, nesting, supports, and stl file export for nine compatible applications easier, ALPHA AI is said to increase the print success rate, increasing productivity, time and resource savings. Its capabilities and integration with the Ackuretta 3D Printing Solution make it easy for practitioners to delegate with no resource intensive design training needed, according to the company.
The company further sited “incorrect orientation” as the cause of 75% of failed prints, which ALPHA AI Premium aims to improve with its auto-orientation, which allows users to orient an application, add AI-generated supports, and save the file in stl, i3dp, or ibf format for export to their dental 3D printer. ALPHA AI’s workflow is designed for users to import their file, choose the 3D printer and resin used, select the desired layer thickness, before orienting and adding supports to the application, and then slicing it to be ready for printing.
