Resin Tray

You will hand-pour resin into the resin tray before printing. The NextDent 5100 Printer works with all NextDent™ print materials, allowing the printer to work for many different dental applications. The NextDent 5100 Printer comes with one resin tray per machine purchased. Purchasing multiple resin trays gives the user the ability to easily print with two different materials on one machine. The more resin trays you have, the more materials you can print with. If the resin tray is sufficiently cleaned in between builds, it is also possible to use a different print material in the same resin tray. However, not every resin can share the same tray, even if the resin tray is cleaned. Please see the section Resin Tray Material Cross-Usage for more information. Determine the number of resin trays you will require.

A Transparent Membrane - This proprietary membrane creates a layer of oxygen in between the membrane and the bottom of the print material. This feature ensures that print material does not cure on the membrane under normal building conditions.
B Tension Slots - The resin-tray tension arm fastens over these slots.

Material Fill Levels - These graduated markings represent four different levels to which you can fill the resin tray.

D QR Code/Serial Number - The QR Code has the serial number embedded in its pattern. These give the resin tray a unique identification that can be read by a QR-code scanner.
