The device specifications have been validated using the software, printers, and process parameters specified in this document. Any other printers, operation software and post-printing processes will be outside of the device specifications. Users shall follow this document to use the device.



The SprintRay Surgical Guide 3 resin is contraindicated in case of the following:

  • If a patient is known to be allergic to any of the ingredients.
  • Direct intraoral contact of uncured or partially uncured material.
  • For every application that is not part of the indication for use.


  • The SprintRay Surgical Guide 3 resin is non-toxic in solid form, and it is classified as a biocompatible material. It is also classified as a sensitizer, which means that exposure over time can cause your body to have a mild allergic reaction. May cause skin irritation. May cause an allergic skin reaction. If contact with skin, wash thoroughly with soap and water. If skin sensitization occurs, discontinue use. If dermatitis or other symptoms persist, seek medical assistance.
  • Avoid inhalation or ingestion. High vapor concentration can cause headache, irritation of eyes or respiratory system. Direct contact with eyes may cause possible corneal damage. Long-term excessive exposure to the material may cause more serious health effects. Monitor air quality per OSHA standards.
  • Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of clean water for at least 20 minutes and consult a physician. Wash the contacted area thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Inhalation: In case of exposure to a high concentration of vapor or mist, remove person to fresh air. Give oxygen or artificial respiration as required
  • Ingestion: Contact your regional poison control center immediately.


  • When washing the printed surgical guide with solvent or grinding the surgical guide, it should be in a properly ventilated environment with proper protective masks and gloves.
  • Material Reuse: The remaining resin in the Resin Tank can be reused. You may use a filter to ensure the resin is free from any cured particles to avoid print failures. The remaining material in the tank can be poured back into the resin bottle upon filtration. This process can be repeated until the material in the bottle is fully consumed. Please note that in the case of reuse, the resin must be filtered and poured back into the same bottle.
  • Recommended storage conditions for unprocessed SprintRay Surgical Guide 3 are at 15 – 25 C (60 -77 F) and avoid direct sunlight.
  • Keep the container closed when it is not in use.
  • Expired or unused SprintRay Surgical Guide 3 should be completely cured or polymerized prior to disposal.
  • Product shall not be used after expiration date.
  • For activation and complete polymerization of the SprintRay Surgical Guide 3 please follow the steps involved in “Fabrication of Surgical Guide” and “Post-curing”.



Fabrication of Surgical Guide

1. Design of the Surgical Guide

The Surgical Guide can be design either by a dental design service/lab, or in-house by the dentist. The intraoral scans and CBCT files of the patient are required for this design. The Surgical Guide design is provided in STL format.

2. Printing

  • Upload the STL file to RayWare. Position the Surgical Guide design with intaglio surface facing away from the print platform (facing up) and making 20o angulation with print platform. (Fig. 1)
  • Add full supports. Avoid having any support at the drill holes
  • Select “SprintRay Surgical Guide 3” resin setting for print-setting and use 100-micron thickness.
  • Ensure Resin Tank is fully secured and filled to the recommended resin level.
  • Ensure the Print Platform is clean, dry, securely placed, and locked on the platform-arm

3. Washing and Drying

  • After your Surgical Guide has been printed successfully, it must be washed using Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) with a concentration of 91% or higher before being post-cured.
  • Next step is to clean and wash the device from excess uncured-resin residue. Use >91% IPA to wash the device using any of the following methods: 
    • Sonication
    • Pro Wash/Dry
  • Ensure NOT to immerse the Surgical Guide for more than 10 min in the IPA bath.
  • Remember: IPA is highly flammable! Please keep it away from heat sources, sparks, and flames.
  • Ensure that your Surgical Guide is completely dry before the next step; if not, use compressed air to dry your Surgical Guide rapidly.
  • Remove the Surgical Guide from the Print Platform.

4. Support Removal

Once removed from the Print Platform, we need to remove all the supports by using a flush cutter. Try to cut as close as possible to the Surgical Guide to minimize the smoothening and finishing procedure.

5. Post Curing

  • Next, the printed Surgical Guide needs to be properly post-cured using a ProCure to maximize strength and accuracy and comply with required standards.
  • All the post-curing settings are preset in ProCure 1 and ProCure 2 units
  • NOTE: the printed surgical guide has a yellowish color after post-curing, which will turn into
    clear after autoclaving.


Finishing and Polishing

  1. Finishing

    • Use the Scotch-BriteTM/FuzziesTM Wheel for smoothening the surgical guide surface.
  2. Polishing

    • Use pumice and muslin wheel to remove the minor scratches from the surface. You may use  polishing compound and muslin wheel to further polish the surface.
    • Wash and clean the device with a brush using soap and warm water.


Insert the surgical guide sleeves in the drill holes and autoclave for 5 minutes at 134 degrees C.

NOTE: the printed surgical guide has a yellowish color after post-curing, which will turn into
clear after autoclaving.
