3Shape offers pay-per-design service for dental labs

3Shape has introduced CAD Points, a new way for midsized or smaller dental labs to offer a wider range of indications or test potential new business models without committing to a major upfront investment.

CAD Points gives labs pay-per-design access to 3Shape's add-on modules for designing advanced indications such as customized abutments, implant bars and bridges, and removable partial dentures, according to the company.

CAD Point functionality is integrated in 3Shape's Dental System, and dental labs can purchase CAD Points through 3Shape's Webshop or through their 3Shape reselling partner. Technicians can use their CAD Points to pay on-the-spot for creating a new design, according to predetermined CAD Point pricing models. Users can keep track of their CAD Points through status overviews, and they also receive notifications when they are close to running out of CAD Points.

CAD Points are not tied to a specific 3Shape add-on module and can be used with the various advanced indications that are included in the program. Their value does not expire, and users can purchase CAD Points if, and when, they need them.
