    Scan Indication Fixtures

    3Shape has designed special accessories for your scanners to ensure fast, problem-free, and precise scans with high quality digital data for even the most complex indication types.

    The impression fixture - enables automatic alignment of upper and lower when scanning triple-tray impressions. The impression is fixed in a permenant position in the flippable holder. The scanner and software can recreate the precise upper and lower relationship in the digital model.

    The wax-up fixture - enables scanning of wax-ups and bits from all angles and sides. The wax-up is suspended in wires that will be invisible in the scan result.

    Two-cast fixture - enables users to firmly set 2 models, preparation and antagonist, in occlusion so they do not move during scanning. The Two-cast fixture functions like a clamp making it easy to set while holding the models in occlusion.

    3Shape's unique 2-camera and 3-axis motion system

    2 cameras with reduced angle enable impressions, deep inlays and full undercuts to be scanned effectively.

    The 3-axis motion system allows the dental object to be tilted, rotated and translated, facilitating scanning from any viewpoint enabling scanning of more than 350 degrees of a sphere.

    Scan parameters are automatically adjusted to the object's material for accurate color capture.

    Adaptive Impression Scanning

    Jumpstart the digital design process

    Impression scanning, including intra oral, is storming ahead in today's dental arena and represents a technology that must be considered when investing in a new scanner. Gypsym-only scanners may not represent the most future-secure choice. 3Shape's 3D scanners can scan both gypsym models and impressions with fast adaptive impression scanning, at times below 2 minutes.

    Impression scanning reduces turnaround time

    Direct scanning of silicone and alginate impressions enables labs to start CAD design immediately and manufacture model, coping and crown in parallel.

    Enhancing accuracy with direct scanning of impressions

    Impression scanning eliminates inaccuracies that can occur when producing a plaster model from a physical impression.

    Impression scan to virtual model

    Turn the impression scan to a virtual model by applying tools for articulation, trimming of scan, base creation, sectioning of preparations (preserving gingiva), and articulator interface.

    3Shape - leading impression scanning technologies

    3Shape's patented adaptive scanning technology, combined with the scanner's 3-axis motion and 2 cameras with reduced angle facilitate the unique impression scanning capability. Adaptive scanning intelligently detects incomplete areas and automatically builds adaptive scan sequences for capturing full object geometry.

    Before Adaptive Scanning
    The first scan result is incomplete in the preparation, proximal and contact areas, which will jeopardize fit and clinical performance.

    After Adaptive Scanning
    A complete and high accuracy scan after adaptive scanning of incomplete areas automatically applying the optimal combination of 2 cameras and 3-axis motion.


    3Shape Impression scanning is an add-on module for the D700, D710, D800, D810 3D Dental scanners.
