LC Magna for Dental Model Production

Easy and simple workflow

1. CAD files are loaded into Photocentric Studio and prepared for printing with a few clicks. 

2. Simple printer set up to convert files into physical dental models’ layer by layer.

3. Printed models are washed removing excess resin.

4. Models are cured, providing a dry hard surface to thermoform on.


User Guide

High quality materials

As innovators in photopolymer our chemists develop resins that achieve the material properties our partners require for specific applications. Our resin portfolio has been optimised and because we manufacture everything from the building-blocks upwards, we can provide the most cost-effective model costs.

Dental Model Resin

Our Daylight Magna Dental Model resin has been formulated to create high resolution dental models, with fast printing and post exposing. This resin has been developed in conjunction with dental technologists to derive optimal color, surface feel and thermoforming characteristics.

Key Features:

  • Hard, resilient properties
  • Ideal for thermoforming
  • >90% of models being +/- 100 microns (printed on Magna)

Ideal Application:

  • Orthodontic models, ideal for high volume model manufacture.



Powerful and intuitive software

Compatible with dental software such as Exocad, 3shape, Blenderfordental etc. Photocentric Studio gives you the tools to easily prepare your models for printing.

Perfect finish to your dental prints

Our specialised wash and cure process delivers optimized properties maintaining accuracy and consistency.

Smilelign & S4S
Aligner Manufacturer

Smilelign and S4S are major players in the dental aligners in the UK. They had tried almost every manufacturer of 3D printers to meet their requirements for reliability before deciding upon Magna.

Mouthguard Manufacturer

Opro are the world’s largest custom mouthguard manufacturer, they needed to digitise their model manufacturing process so they switched over to Magna’s increased production and took cost out.

Bridge Dental Laboratory
Dental Laboratory

Bridge Dental were experiencing a rapid growth in demand for their clear aligners. In late 2019 they purchased their first magna and began repetable mass manufacture of models.

LC Magna is a supported printer option in 3shape’s Orthodontics System 2020.1.
This listing is specifically for the creation of aligners.

As part of our on-going operation at eXceed, we routinely test printed models from new 3D printers to ensure compatibility with our aligner-design process. We have recently tested 3D prints produced by the PhotoCentric Magna and were thoroughly impressed with their accuracy and quality, when measured against our standard calibration models. The Magna models ranked very high amongst all printed 3D arches we have ever experimented with.
