Student Straigtens His Own Teeth by 3D Printing His Braces


Amos Dudley, an intern at NJIT used 3D Printer to make his clear braces.  Usually getting work done to straighten your teeth can be quite expensive.  Amos managed to straighten his teeth in $60.

Due to his interesting story, Formlabs, a Massachusetts based company that manufactures 3D  printers offered him a job.  Formlabs was founded in 2011 by Maxim Lobovsky, Natan Linder, and David Cranor of MIT.

According to Lobovsky, founder of Formlabs, “Amos’s work pushes the limits of 3D printing applications.  That kind of inventiveness is exactly what our customers hope to achieve with our products.”
