3Shape has filed a complaint against Medit in regards to intraoral scanning technology, including wireless scanning, scanning software, and tooth color shade measurement. It asserts that Medit systems, i500, i600, i700, and i700 wireless all infringe on a number of 3Shape patents. It notes that the i700 wireless particularly infringes on wireless scanning technology patents from 3Shape.
