Applying New Technologies: Delcam's CADCAM Suite Delcam Dental Restoration CADCAM Suite combines the iMetric white-light scanner, DentSCAN software that communicates with the scanner hardware, DentMAN file management database, DentCAD design software that guides the user through the entire process, and DentMILL 3/4/5-axis CAM programming into a comprehensive open-architecture package. It is constructed with a modular approach to the process that manages the patients’ restorations from their first appointment to fitting.

Applying New Technologies: Delcam's CADCAM Suite

Delcam Dental Restoration CADCAM Suite combines the iMetric white-light scanner, DentSCAN software that communicates with the scanner hardware, DentMAN file management database, DentCAD design software that guides the user through the entire process, and DentMILL 3/4/5-axis CAM programming into a comprehensive open-architecture package. It is constructed with a modular approach to the process that manages the patients’ restorations from their first appointment to fitting. Using industry standard data formats enables easy model sharing and connectivity with other software as well as with hardware devices such as scanners and CNC machines.

Features

  • Integrated open system for scanning, designing, milling and project management

  • Open system allows freedom to work with preferred suppliers, flexibility to work with all material types, and access to a wider range of customers

  • Non-encrypted industry-standard STL and IGES file formats can be used to export and import data from a wide range of sources

  • DentMAN configurable management system helps capture, organize and track data through design and manufacture

  • DentSCAN communicates with the scanner hardware and sends the appropriate requests to load the necessary models for the job

  • DentCAD computer-aided 3D design module for the fast and accurate creation of restorations

  • DentMILL 3/4/5-axis CAM program for the manufacture of simple and anatomical copings and bridge frameworks, including full crowns, abutments, dental bars, inlays/onlays and implant bridges
