Due to the open architecture of exocam, third-party software can be used for the actual tool path calculation. The result is a seamlessly integrated CAD/CAM software.
System integrators can purchase a fully integrated CAM module from exocad GmbH including tool path calculation currently provided by either Moduleworks or Sum3D. Alternatively, there is a nesting-only version of exocam available and the tool path calculation can be performed by Moduleworks, Sum3D or any other CAM provider.
The XML-based data exchange provides an interface to an ever wider range of third-party CAM programs. exocad DentalCAD provides a "Construction Information File" with all required information to ensure a smooth workflow with third-party CAM systems.
For open (STL-based) versions of exocad DentalCAD, any other dental CAM software able to read STL files can also be used, albeit without the benefits of a smooth workflow integration.
