PARTNER NEWS: Coherent and exocad Collaborate to Offer Improved Software Innovation for the Dental Industry
Dieburg/Darmstadt, Germany, March 25, 2020
Coherent, a leading manufacturer of laser-based technologies, and exocad, a leading CAD/CAM software developer and supplier for dental applications, have announced a collaboration that both companies believe will improve the digital workflow for dental laboratories. (...) The collaboration between Coherent and exocad now means that a simple data interface will be available between exocad’s DentalDB case management software and the DENTAL COCKPIT, whereby exocad designs can be automatically exported into the DENTAL COCKPIT with a single click. The DENTAL COCKPIT pre-processes and automatically generates the data (according to optimized default parameters) for production of dental parts on the 3D metal printer CREATOR using titanium and CoCr dental-compliant materials. Now, 3D data from the patient can be loaded and printed with two simple clicks because the DENTAL COCKPIT software automates previously time-consuming processes such as tagging, slicing, nesting within the 3D printer build area and the creation of support structures, if and when necessary.
