Objet, 3Shape streamline CAD/CAM process

Objet Geometries and 3Shape have jointly developed an interface that enables 3Shape Dental System 2010 3D restoration designs to be produced on the Objet Eden line of 3D printing systems.

Complete integration is made possible by 3Shape's CAMbridge manufacturing software that brings the digital model information from Dental System onward to the Objet Studio software that communicates directly with the Eden 3D printer, according to the Objet.

"3Shape has worked closely with Objet to test and qualify the complete process required to produce dental components on Objet Eden 3D printers," said Avi Cohen, head of medical solutions at Objet Geometries, in a press release. "This includes special optimizations to ensure that components designed in 3Shape's CAD software will always print reliably and accurately using Objet's additive manufacturing methods and techniques."

The new interface capabilities are already available with the latest 3Shape Dental System and CAMbridge releases.
