The new dental Scan user software from smart optics focuses on clear design and greater flexibility for the user. In terms of functionality, the software also holds a few surprises in store.

According to the motto „As much as necessary, as little as possible“, the user interface of the Activity software was redesigned completely. The layout of the operating elements is designed to have the tools required for the current work step available directly. This reduces mouse travel and provides faster operating times. The specially developed icons allow intuitive learning and operation of all program functions.

In addition to the user-friendliness, the performance of a scanner software is the priority. With dental Scan, the user gets speed, precision and a host of application options.

The 3D viewer offers different presentation modes which give a better overview and thus better processing of the scan data. Various scan modes, such as secondDie and multiDie, allow the user to work fast and in comfort. The support of the color texture scan which is now available in addition to the monochrome texture scan – depending on the scanner model – is of considerable benefit.

The correction scan is a new feature. Should you discover a belated fault of the jaw model, there is no need to redo all the work entirely. A big saving in time, which supports the user, particularly in stressful times.

And the stand-by mode is also new. This allows the user to continue work immediately after an interruption without losing time in reactivating the scanner. Time, which is important. Therefore, the algorithms of the software were also improved, so that the software allows faster processing overall and lets you execute your orders productively.

The following system requirements are generally recommended by smart optics. The minimum system requirements can be found adapted to the respective scanner also in the scanner comparison or on the respective scanner page.
