System Delivery

After placing your order, a 3D Systems™ representative will contact you to confirm your shipment delivery date. Ensure that the area where you intend to place your NextDent 5100 Printer is ready to move the system into, and that you have the assistance of another person or lifting device, such as a hand truck, before scheduling the shipment of your printer. The following information will guide you through this preparation phase.

Preparation for Receiving 

Inform your receiving personnel that the items you ordered will be arriving and arrange for a location to store them until you are ready to install the printer and any accessories.

Transporting the NextDent 5100 Printer

When you open the printer crate, use the help of another person or a hand truck to help move the system. If you do not have a hand truck or another person on-site to help you, arrange to have one or both of these aids beforehand.

Shipment Arrival

The NextDent 5100 Printer will arrive in a variety of crates and/or pallets - the largest crate being for the NextDent 5100 Printer. Your shipment will consist of the following items:

  • NextDent 5100 Printer

  • Print Platform (x2)
  • Power Cord/Power Brick
