Resin 3D printing is going strong in our industry. Almost to the point of not remembering how we functioned without one. Well it's time for the next "phase" of 3D printing. Metal. This week we talk to Josh Williams from GPS Digital RPD in Orlando, Florida. Josh runs a 100% digital metal printing facility specializing (as of now) in partial frameworks. He talks about his early days of learning the analog method of making frames, owning his own lab in a bait shop, and partnering up with GPS Dental to take it all digital. Josh also talks about researching the printers, the complete workflow, how they overcame issues, and some of the maintenance these highly fascinating machines take to produce perfect fitting metal frameworks. What we love is that Josh doesn't sell printers or metal. He just uses them every day making frames for only other labs that need a good and reliable solution for their doctors.
