3Shape has unveiled new versions of its D-series desktop scanners and two new D-series models, the D2000 and D1000. The D2000 and D1000 feature multi-line scanning technology - a new 3Shape proprietary scanning technology shown to increase scanning speeds by 30%.
3Shape scanners boost speed and performance
The new versions of the D-series benchtop scanner are the D750 and D850, which are major upgrades of the former D700 and D800 scanner models. The two, along with the presently available D900L, now feature a new technology platform combined with a larger interior space and blue LED for reduced scan noise.
Two new D-series lab scanners released: D2000 and D1000
3Shape has also introduced two new lab scanners, the D2000 and D1000. The two scanners are equipped with four 5.0 MP cameras and high-quality mechanics to improve scanning accuracy and the aforementioned new multi-line technology for increased scanning speed.
NEW D2000 scannerreduces handling time by 40%
The D2000 benchtop scanner includes several other new features like, "All-in-One" scanning and a large interior with room for two models.
All-in-One scanning and the D2000's large interior enable dental technicians to capture both the upper and lower models, inserted dies and occlusion information in a single scan. Both the D2000 and D1000 scanners can "see" around dies in the model so that there is no need, in most cases, to remove dies during scanning.
This process that can eliminate four out of the five workflow steps used to scan, for example, a 3-unit bridge. This reduction in workflow steps results in time-savings of up to 40% for dental labs.
Additionally, 3Shape Auto-Occlusion Technology merges the previously simultaneously-scanned models within the software to create a correct bite.
Documented accuracy in all 3Shape scanners
3Shape measures, controls and documents scanner accuracy in all its scanners using well-defined standards and metrology procedures. 3Shape's high scan accuracy is validated in accordance with ISO 12836 - a standard that specifies a test protocol for the assessment of crown and bridge accuracy in dental scanners. Implant bars and bridges represent the most accuracy-demanding indication. Complementing the ISO standard, 3Shape additionally validates scan accuracy using specially designed implant objects.
New TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner
3Shape has also released TRIOS® 3, the third generation of its intraoral colour scanner and digital impression solution in pen grip, handle grip and chair mount version. The new TRIOS 3 also features an intraoral camera integrated with the high-speed 3D colour intraoral scanner and a smaller and rounded scan tip for enhanced patient comfort.
