New products: 3Shape launches new scanners, software in Chicago

By DrBicuspid Staff

February 21, 2019 -- CHICAGO - 3Shape has introduced new scanners and software at the 2019 Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting.

The company's flagship product reveal was the E4 scanner, a new device that can accurately scan full arches within seconds, aimed at dental labs. The E4 is equipped with four 5-megapixel cameras and skips the bite and die scans to save time. At a show demonstration, the scanner completed a full arch scan in 8 sec, about 12 sec faster than its predecessor, the E3. It will officially launch in August 2019, according to the company.

In addition to the E4, 3Shape announced Trios 3 Basic, an entry-level model of its signature intraoral scanner. Unlike the higher-end Trios, the Trios 3 Basic is a wired-only device that does not include access to all 3Shape apps. The scanner price will start at $23,500, the company announced.

3Shape also launched Dental System 2019, an updated version of its CAD/CAM workflow. The software includes new workflows to create dentures, splints, and clear aligners, although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not yet cleared the splint workflow for use in the U.S.
