Atlantis™ lab-based scanning for 3Shape scanners coming soon

3Shape and Astra Tech announce the upcoming release of a new interface solution that allows labs to send 3Shape scans directly to Atlantis™ service centers for immediate design and production of patient-specific implant abutments..

Copenhagen, February 22nd 20123Shape, a technology leader in 3D scanning and CAD/CAM software for dental applications, and Astra Tech, a market leader in the field of implant dentistry and CAD/CAM abutments, announce the upcoming joint release of a new software interface solution linking  3Shape 3D dental scanners and Atlantis VAD™ (Virtual Abutment Design) software.

With a single click, 3Shape scanner users in dental labs will be able to transfer digital scan information, containing the patient oral geometry with implant positions, straightaway into Astra Tech’s Atlantis™ design and manufacturing facilities. For labs working with Atlantis™ abutment design services, this direct new connectivity reduces costs, eliminates the shipping of physical models, and reduces turnaround time.

Upon release, the solution will be an available option in 3Shape’s powerful Abutment Designer™ module, an add-on to 3Shape’s user-acclaimed Dental System™, giving 3Shape users additional choices when providing customized abutments for their customers. 

“3Shape strives to offer maximum flexibility and a wide range of options to its reselling partners and their dental lab customers who are using 3Shape scanner and software solutions,” says Flemming Thorup, President & CEO at 3Shape. We are very happy that this collaboration between AstraTech and 3Shape will make it possible for many laboratories to benefit from the unique strengths of our respective companies.”

The new interface is in the pre-market and final testing phases. Users who wish to benefit from this opportunity should contact their supplier for explicit information about availability of the interface for their system.
