These are only some of the Dental System 2012 groundbreaking features:
3Shape Communicates- Integration to advanced communication tools that enable labs to send their dentist-clients 3D design visualizations for use in their discussions with the lab as well as with their patients. The complete version and final availability conditions will be ready during the forthcoming months.
ModelBuilder - Allows technicians to design lab models for an extensive range of indications, including implant models, directly from intraoral scans and conventional impression scans.
TRIOSÂ - integration enables labs to receive TRIOS digital impression scans from the clinic directly into their Dental System Inbox
Texture Scanning - Enhances visualization of surface details and allows technicians to include hand-drawn design guidance markings in the digital design (Texture scanning is available on D800/810 scanners).
Dynamic Virtual Articulator - Support for the market's most widely recognized articulators, providing an optimal user-experience. With Occlusion Compass functionality, the colors of contact points are mapped to specific occlusion movements.
Temporaries and Diagnostic Wax-ups - A revolutionary workflow solution for producing temporary crowns and diagnostic wax-ups (including Virtual Prep, Virtual Gingiva, CAD Temporaries and Virtual Diagnostic Wax-up design).
Align & Re-use design - Using 3Shape's Align & Reuse technology, designs for the Virtual Diagnostic Wax-up and Temporary can be reused directly when designing the final crown.
Multilayer Design - Enables highly productive bridge design for pressing or combinations of milled glass-ceramics and Zirconia. Automatically splits full anatomy designs into two true and entire parts, without undercuts or lost areas.
Improved SmileComposer - Optimized auto-placement of crowns and morphing to preparation.
Advanced Telescope design - Completely new software for optimized creation of telescopic crowns, including sophisticated primary telescope modeling and improved edge design.
