Described as the first-ever, cloud-based CAD software designed for dentists, Clinux CAD has expanded its range of capabilities and now allows users to mix and match the optimal design method on a tooth-by-tooth basis.

The 3 new innovations designed to expand the possibilities for customers are:

  1. New indication: Inlay/Onlay
    With clinicians having a growing desire to 3D print their inlays and onlays, Clinux CAD’s new indication is said to deliver comfort to users with a familiar workflow, as with crowns, and where multiple unit designs, even in opposing quadrants, are fully supported.
  2. New Margin Tool function: Semi-Automatic Margin
    Users of Clinux CAD will now find a fully functioning semi-automatic margin finder when doing their next case. This feature allows a clinician to quickly complete the margin process, tracing the cursor and finding the shortest distance along an edge.
  3. Pay-per Export License
    With this option, access and use of Clinux CAD is allowed, with users paying only when a design is exported. This newly available license is in addition to monthly, annual, or a 5-year license option, where all exports are unlimited, and are purchased in blocks of credits with the cost based on the volume of credits purchased, the company states.

“The new indications open up a world of possibilities for dentists wishing to make their own CAD designs,” states Roddy MacLeod, Clinux Inc. CEO, in a press release. “Multiple-unit, simultaneous designing unlocks profitable workflows for the dentist, whether restoring a quadrant in 1 visit or a patient’s new smile.”

Clinux says the clinical convenience of the innovations allows users to mix and match the optimal design method on a tooth-by-tooth basis. “As an example, a user may use Database design when there is no useful pre-existing occlusion or Copy design, which is ideal for reproducing wax-ups in the anterior. In any scenario, we have worked to ensure the maximum clinical outcome through guided and intuitive workflows,” MacLeod adds in the press release.

Clinux CAD is the first ever Cloud-based CAD for dentists featuring guided workflows. Founded in 2020, the open system was developed by clinical experts, and allows dentists to quickly fabricate inlays, onlays, crowns, crownlays, and night guards/splints within the browser. Clinux imports scans from all IOS types and allows export of designs to dentistry’s most popular mills and 3D printers with one click, the company states.
