The Lab

Hardware, software and other experimental content, straight from the lab

Here at 3D Lab Denmark we have the capacity to develop and research in a myriad of scientific fields. It all starts with our combined competences, hardware, software and knowledge from previous projects.


At our 3D Lab we use a handful of different hardware, from inter-oral scanners to 3D printers.

  • Stratasys J5 MediJet - Medical PolyJet printer
  • Prusa XL 5 toolheads - Multimaterial FDM/FFF printer
  • Formlabs Form 3B - Biocompatible resin 3D printer
  • Formlabs Form 2 - Resin 3D printer
  • Formlabs Form Cure and Form Wash - Washing and curing for resin prints
  • 3shape Trios 3 & 4 Wireless inter-oral 3D scanner
  • Custom built workstations for photorealistic 3D rendering, simulations, etc.
  • Planmeca Cone Beam CT scanners with soft-tissue imaging capabilities

There are many software solutions with similar functionality in this space. From full on, but also very expensive, software packages certified to use for medical purposes to Open Source software. The following list is populated with the ones we found most effective for our workflows and are currently using at 3D Lab Denmark:

List of software

  • Materialise Innovation Suite
    Mimics, 3-matic
  • Dolphin Imaging
  • Planmeca Romexis
  • Formlabs PreForm
  • GrabCAD Print
  • Digora

3D scan of our headquarters

Yes, we took the LiDAR scanner of an iPad and scanned the whole office.
Here is the result:
