Automated manufacturing solution for labs of all sizes
Copenhagen, July 16, 2013 – 3Shape, the provider of 3D scanners and CAD/CAM software solutions, announces the launch of CAMbridge™ 2013, an innovative solution that automates the manufacturing of CAD designs. With this release, 3Shape’s automated manufacturing solution for dental CAD/CAM now includes more automation and support for an expanded range of compact desktop manufacturing machines – making restoration-manufacturing easy, efficient, and affordable for dental labs of any size.
Support for desktop manufacturing machines and new material blocks
3Shape CAMbridge® 2013 has been extended to support even more manufacturing options, including a wide range of desktop manufacturing machines designed to offer affordable milling solutions for smaller labs. Also new is direct support plus dedicated milling and grinding strategies for widely used materials such as Ivolclar Vivadent IPS e.max®, VITA® VITABLOCS® MARK II, 3M™ ESPE™ Lava™ Ultimate Restorative.
Automated manufacturing integrated into 3Shape Dental System™
3Shape CAMbridge® 2013 is designed for complete integration within 3Shape’s Dental System™, providing a seamless, highly-automated, and simplified workflow that starts from order creation and ends with milling or 3D printing. Lab technicians simply select the CAMbridge option as the manufacturing process when creating the order and, after designing, they launch CAMbridge from within Dental System™ to produce optimally planned CAM output including sprues, supports, etc.
3Shape CAMbridge® 2013 is a natural step in 3Shape’s mission to create lab solutions that are simple and easy to use, so that even smaller dental businesses can enjoy the full benefits of CAD/CAM. Along with enhanced integration and automation, the user interface has been restructured to give an even better overview of multiple jobs and machines. Additional new features in the 2013 version include 5-Axis continuous machining and updated filters for creating automated individual strategies for all dental indications.
Other applications and industries as well
3Shape CAMbridge® 2013 can also be used as a stand-alone software tool, providing highly automated production of designs from any CAD system that supports the standard STL file format. 3Shape CAMbridge® is being successfully applied in various industries, including Orthodontics, audio instruments, and the production of industrial parts.
