3Shape releases its new Dental System™ 2013

3Shape’s Dental System™ 2013 introduces new major indications, a variety of powerful design tools, optimized order-creation, stronger scan and design workflows, and a new and highly intuitive user-interface.

Copenhagen, January 7, 2013 – on December 21, 2012, 3Shape, a user-acclaimed worldwide leader in 3D scanners and CAD/CAM software solutions, released its next generation Dental System™ 2013 to the market.

“We are keenly focused on helping labs stay competitive in an industry driven by technology changes, escalating globalization, and increasing regulatory demands,” says Flemming Thorup, President & CEO at 3Shape. “By enhancing ease-of-use in our Dental System 2013, and adding even more major indications that can be provided digitally, we believe that we have significantly increased the productivity and range of services labs can offer at competitive prices.”

3Shape Dental System 2013

New features in Dental System 2013 include:
  • New user interface for maximum ease-of-use and simplified design workflows
    A new intuitive workflow progress bar guides users through each design step. The new interface introduces an impressive full Screen design window that maximizes 3D design space.
  • Advanced implant bridges with gingiva (“Prettau style”)
    Design advanced bridges - complete with gingiva, teeth, and implant interfaces in a single smooth workflow. Designs can be milled directly in Zirconia, titanium, PMMA, or other materials.
  • New Post and Core design software
    Completely new Post and Core solution with unique scanning and design workflows. Specially designed scan-posts capture post positions and depth from the model. All layers are designed in a single workflow – starting with the anatomy layer first. Uses scans from both TRIOS® and 3Shape desktop scanners.  
  • New Abutment Designer™ workflow for screw-retained crowns and anatomical abutments
    3Shape introduces a new workflow for designing screw-retained restorations in Abutment Designer™. All types of abutments – Standard customized abutments, screw-retained Crowns and anatomical abutments – are selected directly in the order form, followed by the new ‘Anatomy-First’ workflow.
  • Ground-breaking Digital Denture Design
    3Shape’s new Denture Design™ software brings digital precision and efficiency to a traditionally technique demanding process. Technicians use 3Shape’s Smile Composer™ and a unique Gingiva Creation Tool to efficiently model highly esthetic and functional dentures.
  • TRIOS® Inbox - labs can connect to any open TRIOS® digital impression system in the world
    The new TRIOS® Inbox enables labs to receive scans from TRIOS® Digital Impression Systems in dental clinics and discuss cases with dentists online. Incoming cases are accepted or rejected with a single click and a notification is immediately sent back to the dentist.
