Frequently Asked Questions
HOW TO PURCHASE
Where do I find pricing information?
Product prices are not available on our website. The price of a 3Shape solution depends on several factors. 3Shape has partnered up with a number of preferred resellers and sales representatives who represent us in all regions and markets where our solutions are approved. To get a quote, reach out to your preferred reseller for an offer tailored to your needs, and take advantage of specific promotions relevant to your situation.
How do I buy a 3Shape product?
Currently, 3Shape does not sell directly to customers. This is why we have partnered up with a number of preferred resellers who represent 3Shape in all markets where our solutions are approved. To request a demo or for any product and pricing related questions, please fill out the contact form and the designated regional sales representative will get in touch with you.
Can I download 3Shape software online?
Purchasing 3Shape software is done via our network of sales representatives. Upon purchase, your reseller will provide you with a dongle, which then holds all your subscriptions and makes it easy to update and upgrade.
Hardware and software requirements
What are the minimum hardware and software requirements for 3Shape products?
The PC is an important part of the overall 3Shape system. It is the engine on which the software is run, and consequently the software puts some requirements on the PC. Our sales representatives can advise you on the specific PCs that work on a specific combination of 3Shape products. To inform you and get you more acquainted access these overview documents: Minimum PC requirements for 3Shape software packages and Network speed requirements.
3Shape 3D viewer
Does 3Shape offer a 3D viewer?
Our 3D files can be opened and exported as .DCM, .PLY and .STL files. Standard .STL files can be read and opened by most 3D viewers that are available online. We also offer a free 3Shape 3D viewer if you want to open TRIOS .DCM files on a PC without 3Shape software. This can be useful if you want to preview scans including all the additional information such as color, for example. In order to get started, you need to download the 3Shape 3D Viewer installation file.
SUPPORT AND GETTING IN TOUCH

NEW FEATURES AND UPGRADES
How can I upgrade to the latest software version?
Upgrading your software is done via your reseller. Not all software updates get approved in all regions at the same time. That’s why we recommend first checking whether you’re eligible for an upgrade by checking the ‘subscription status’ in your software. To perform the upgrade, contact your reseller for help.
Where can I find information about new features and updates?
If you are an existing user looking for the most up to date product status, we recommend going into 3Shape Community where we list all the latest features that are included with the newest version of our software.
How can I send cases to Invisalign?
For TRIOS users outside the US, we offer a course that teaches you how to submit TRIOS cases to Invisalign. Taking this course will certify you to send TRIOS cases to Invisalign. Access to the training is limited to authorized (non US) users only. Signing up can be done through 3Shape Academy.
