College student budgets are notoriously tight, but Amos Dudley found a way to demonetize Invisalign braces using equipment in his school’s digital fabrication lab. After some orthodontics research, Dudley bought inert retainer plastic on eBay and used a NextEngine laser scanner, Stratasys Dimension 1200es 3D printer, and a vacuum forming machine to create a set of personalized, homemade aligners. After 16 weeks of wearing them, Dudley’s teeth are perfectly straight — and all for $60 in materials.
