MillBox

MillBox is the new dental CAM solution from CIMsystem developed for milling any variation of CAD/CAM material. Reportedly innovating CAM with its guided workflow and technician-friendly user interface, MillBox is said to simplify the nesting process and expedite toolpath creation so lab technicians can focus on more important tasks. With little to no manual steps needed in the nesting process, new users reportedly are able to get operational immediately.

"CIMsystem software is our first consideration when choosing CAM products. The software calculations have been consistently accurate, and the software is easy to learn and implement into your laboratory. Support is there if needed to ensure your laboratory is up and running." - Tim Tyndall, CDT, DDS4D Dental Laboratories
