3M announces software configuration files now available

Design/mill parameters are now available via software configuration files for 3M Lava zirconia digital materials.

Achieving highly esthetic monolithic restorations has become easier with the introduction of new materials, such as 3M™ Lava™ Esthetic Fluorescent Full-Contour Zirconia. And with more labs utilizing this material, it's vital to ensure it's easy to design and mill using today’s most popular CAD software.

With this convenience in mind, 3M is announcing the availability of design/mill parameters, via software configuration files, for 3M Lava zirconia digital materials, now easily available for download from the 3M website. Initially, the files will be available for users of 3Shape, Dental Wings and Exocad software platforms; additionally, the 3M Digital Materials settings may be included by default in upcoming releases of these software packages.
