3shape Study Group • Let’s Change Dentistry Together

Welcome to 3Shape Study Group!

Our mission is to be your go to source for quick, easy, and FREE help with anything related to 3Shape Dental System or the Trios Intraoral Scanner.

We know digital dentistry can be tough, and like a lot of technicians and dentists, I know I struggled managing all the ins and outs of moving from conventional to digital dentistry. I still do!

That is where this group comes in. As of this writing, we have more than 30,000(!) members from over 235 countries that can help you with whatever it is you can’t quite figure out. We invite you to post your cases, workflows, comments, and photos as we all work together to help one another!

The best part? It’s free!

The admins/mods of this group work hard to keep it free of ads, trophy posting, and anything unrelated to our singular focus: That no one should have to struggle at their desk figuring out how to finish a case for a client! Enjoy!

I'm a dentist using ImplantStudio for all my implant planning. With the latest update I cannot make virtual bridge, just virtual crown. Could it be possible to bring back the bridge option in planning?

The only way around currently seems to put virtual crown everywhere but I have to place implants under every tooth. So it create a guide with guide tubes colliding or not being use. With multiple single virtual crown, I'm also unable to move multiple unit together so it become much more work to create these crown in the right position.

Also I would like to be able to send my planning with the virtual teeth to an external lab so they could finalized my design and make an interim printed or milled immediate prosthesis.

Maybe I need Dental system to do what I would like, but I won't be using much of it apart from the virtual bridge option that was in ImplantStudio prior to Unite upgrade.

Comment on Facebook

I am struggling with the same thing! I just started designing the virtual crowns as temp on prepared in dental designer, combining it with additional scans and importing it in implant studio as a preprep. Not as nice as before, but it does have the benefit that if I need to do an immediate temp or even the final down the road, I can convert the design easily.

I posted about this a month ago and no one responded btw

Birk Ploennigs (adam is not on)

Hi all, my apologies for that error in the software. We are aware of it and working on a solution. I will get back to you tomorrow with an update on the time line.

Hi all, Also sorry from my side about this issue. We have some weeks ago released a temporary fix. When selecting the Implant Studio action, it is possible to add additional virtual crowns (besides the one(s) under the implant(s)) by selecting the single restorations and "crown on prep" - these will be treated as additional virtual crowns. Virtual crowns placed next to each other will act as a virtual bridge, and can be scaled together. A proper fix, where multiple virtual crowns can be added while placing the implant, will be released during the summer, but at least the full functionality is available now using the "crown on prep". Hope this helps!

We used to have this bug upto the DS20 and I wished it would never be fixed but it's gone in the DS21. Can you add this 'No shine' as an option in the future DS? I find it much easier to see the margins with the matt color compared to the shiny color scan. This bug happens when you 'Save' the scan using the 'Addition scans' and 'Load' it back to the order. Pretty simple. This was a HAPPY BUG for me. 🙂 Now I have to 'Save' the scan using the 'Additional scans', then create a new order form using the 'Design Module: DentalDesigner 2020', Open the order, then go through the usual process to create he matt version. 🙁 It's too time consuming.

This probably would end up at the very bottom of the 3shape "TO-DO" list. But it would be nice if the 3shape 3d viewer had it's own preview panel plugin so it doesn't break the preview panel in windows. Also would be nice to have a thumbnail generator that would automatically generate thumbnails so you can quickly identify STL/ply/dcm/obj files without having to open them in the 3d preview window ...

Am I missing something? Once you set up the order as milled base and milled teeth for example, the CAM output will be CAM5 for all of that, plus CAM5 for monoblock, plus 2 STL's for printing monoblock. So, why would you need that?

Yes please

We also need those option for copy denture.

Yeah I hate that glitch. The stl that 3shape generates there sometime gets funky with the monoblock.

what an amazing library of teeth you are using! where to get it?

Yes to add to this: arc transformation would work so much better If it followed compensating curves in the posterior and rotated along the marginal ridges/long axis almost like everything was attached with a string that connected through the central fossa

Paint surface to protect: I know it's been requested here a few times before by many users. But I'll toss it in here again.

Very often, when working on a case like this copy denture with a wash, it would be nice to paint the teeth and cervicals to protect those surfaces from sculpting... and if i want to smooth away excess impression material, or maybe get a bit more artistic with sculpting the base, I can do it a bit more haphazardly without worrying about my teeth.

Not only for this application, but for a few other indications that would really benefit from locking a surface to protect it from my fat-finger tool use

If scan abutments code for “implant position” why can the system not allow for restoratively driven abutment planning for screw retained restorations.

It would be preferable to design the restoration and select through available abutment systems for that implant system from Any manufacturer DME to make the best choice of abutment from a restorative space, emergence, analog choice, model design etc.

Guessing from digital scans to select parts from limited catalogs is far from ideal. It either decreases outcome or wastes time.

This change would also improve model builder.

Systems with analogs you or your account prefer could be chosen for the model work, abutments chosen for the best clinical result.

The data is all there.
This would be brilliant.

Comment on Facebook

It will overload DS and self destruct.

Probably some variable that has an arbitrary limit of memory allocation

You really tested this?! Good to know!😄

Hm... what could be the reason to have more than 10 scans? And how many are needed? And you're correct, it's all about resources. One TRIOS scan has ~500 000 triangles. 15 scans(2 jaw scans+bite+2 pre-prep scans + 10 additionals scans) in total will have ~750000 triangles. Adding more might decrease fps to a very low values I'm not sure if the most beautifull 3D games have such amount of triangles at the same time drawn in the scene. Because a lot of different techniques are used there for optimisation. E.g LOD(Level of Detail) is a technique of reducing mesh complexity as objects become more distant from the viewer.) developer.arm.com/documentation/102496/0100/Level-of-Detail---LOD

So it's 3 Shape's fault for your choice of designer?

I have no problem with IOS or correcting margins if needed.

Don’t understand completely, why is 3shape fault if you outsource design and you can correct margin etc? That is designers job…

And also you wrote in 3shape group you are looking for a designer, so can you explain what exact suggestion you have or this post has no sense…sorry…

Tiny annoying thing about model builder that's always bothered me. If you ever need to go back to redesign/step backwards

It always changes the value of the text depth into a positive value, so instead of embossing the text, it becomes positive.

Thumb up for B4D. Incredibly fast software improvement.

Good

Blender for dental is the only dental software that teaches you about meshs and how to use meshs how to correct mesh. editing verticies and faces.. 3 shape has been out for over 20 years and doesn't teach any of their technicians nor any of their 3rd party technicians about mesh meshes and how a mesh can become distorted from an oral scan or from a desktop scanner And how to fix those meshes so that the 3 shapes software doesn't lock up on you when you're doing a big case. Again blender for dental is the only dental CAD software true CAD software that educates you on how to fix mesh verticies. 3shape none exocad teach you any of that. 3 shaped came out in I think 2007 2008 and it wasn't until what 20 years later they finally have a mesh correctioning. 3 shape is just a graphical user interface to make it easy for anybody to design any type of case you don't even have to be a certified dental technician you can be somebody off the street and make any type of Crown or case using 3 shape. So what I'm saying is you need less experience to use X ocad or 3 shapes software then you do blender you need more cad experience and understanding from a engineering standpoint.

Would be nice if we had the option to batch-modify and assign operators by shift+selecting cases and then right clicking to assign an operator for multiple cases.

Would be a very quick way of tracking designer productivity if our designers could just right click and highlight their recents for the day on their station and assign operator. Currently it's possible, but you have to do it on a single case-by-case basis by right clicking each individual one

Especially useful if you are compensating per design, but also useful if you want to use the data for performance reports or easy tracking of who designed what in the event of a remake situation

After all the years we have been working with 3shape and IOS orders I wonder this ....

Why is there not a provision when we align ScanBodies to SCULPT the model once we have the alignment completed.

We all know if there is not an emergence scan the smart thing to do is to copy the scan locator scan and MAKE one so we can sculpt this prior but it seems like such a simple and intuitive fix.

I get why we can't just sculpt the working model on the fly but at this step there is nothing done in the design tree that will be affected.

There are some patents surrounding this from various companies, wouldn't be surprised if that's the reason why it isn't available. You can use the option for base + teeth with basal reduction, print the denture base with tooth sockets and the holes that penetrate through it and then reduce manually after placing the carded teeth in that denture base

I will be so mad if they finally do that after I bought it.. Whenever I brought it up with 3shape they seemed to have no intentions in doing it.

If you need to export from bluesky, I can help you at a lower cost. I have several exports that I no longer use.

yes please! for single implants I likes implant studio more. For anything more complex - not only exports but the whole workflow for BSB wins : ) also just looking how fast BSB evolves puts expensive implant studio to shame 🙁

We are looking into relevant models. If you do the math BSB is more expensive if you just do a decent amount of guides, but obviously upfront cost is higher

Okay but shells from BSB make me cry... a lot of spare triangles, sleeves angles completely distorted.... I think the quality of the software is not comparable....

So you can down load the software for free

Hey why does the morph to preprep smooth over the details so much? Why can't we have a preprep copy that is lossless in detail? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

If we stop to think about how amazing it is that we can even do that with as much accuracy as we can… it’s pretty impressive But I agree, copying triangles should be essentially lossless *in theory*

Have you set smoothing to 0

I have found that the closer you move the crown design to the pre-prep, the better the detail when you morph it. And click it a couple times until it's right (if needed)

Would be nice if we had the option to change if an attachment was additive or subtractive on-the-fly rather than having to back out and go alllll the way into control panel, duplicate, and change it to an additive attachment.

Working on this case here with some zest anchors for a denture that will be picked up chairside. So if i could just select the locator and housing, attach that to the model from my preliminary setup, and sculpt a bit around it in order to create a little extra room for pickup material to flow, it would make things super quick.

Now instead, I need to sculpt by eye like some uncivilized caveman...

attached a bunch of parametric cylinders instead, but it would've been cooler so my point still stands.

I spent many a hours trying to get a system for it too. Wanted my printed dentures to have the housings cut out for inserts to be put in to try out before a milled final. Was able to do it but the time spent was too much. Was fun when it worked though

1. Would be nice to skip the coupling step in ivotion as there is no coupling really happening. It just waits time
Funny thing is you even get coupling errors quite often.

2. In copy denture I wish I could create a protected surface area so I could modify the rest of the areas without accidentally changing the fitting surface for example.

3. Please allow ivotion nesting process at the end of any design. This way we could use in copy denture and other applications much easier.

Denture designer suggestion

Allow us to make the connectors less than 70-70-60

OR

Allow the sculpt tool to reduce JUST the connector in the next step to protect the anatomy of the teeth. Much like the tools can do in C&B module when you are using a specific preset like sculpt to antagonist or sculpt to contact

John Wilson, are printing or milling? I ask because if printing it makes sense. If milling it really doesn't because it is a 1mm burr milling those areas and it won't get into there (unless you are using a custom strategy that utilizes the 0.5mm burr or some third Party burrs).

Yep, or like I suggested a couple of weeks ago, no connectors at all and still be able to mill them bridged.

OR… just let me intersect designed teeth like I do in C&B and don’t tell me what to do with my connectors, you’re not my mother😂

The old switcheroo: give me denture transform tools so I can move upper and lower arches in perfect occlusion simultaneously in the crown and bridge design module.

On these larger full-mouth diagnostics, having the teeth come in already in occlusion and moving them arbitrarily so we can assess the need to open VDO and advising how much preparation of tooth structure may be needed would make my life so much easier and save me so much time.

In the denture module when using the gingivator, i would love to use different setting for the front six or even front eight and have a different setting for the posterior region. Dentures are supposed to be self cleansing by nature especially since one of the functions of the buccinator muscle is to push food around clean the sides of the cheek area. That being said it would be extremely benificial to set heavy festooning “like” settings with gingivator for the front and a more soft setting for the posterior. Maybe even something like the presets of the waxknife. Also it would be nice to be able to tilt the directions of the root eminence ... See MoreSee Less

Heavily staggered teeth are almost impossible to do in the denture module without heavy modification of the teeth size and where they touch, because it won't generate the connectors.

I first want to say what an amazing tool 3D preview is for quality control in SW21. What an improvement from previous versions. Thank you for that. I have a few things that I would like to see however:
1. Please make the distance map default to 1.00mm to match the default in design instead of 0.70mm.
2. Please activate the hot keys for the preparation and antagonist to match the hot keys in design.
3. Please make the margin and distance mapping automatically turn on when you click on a restoration.
These changes would cut 50% or more from QC time not having to move the mouse and click so much. The more consistent 3D Preview is to design, the more fluid the software will be.

Every single day of my 3shape life I am making mock orders to align scans, and wasting precious time. I am not the only person to request this but the 3dviewer needs to be updated to align and edit meshes on the fly. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

This is by far my biggest complaint. Add to that the fact that we just discovered a few weeks back that scans aligned in a dummy 3Shape order retain their original coordinates when importing to and designing a new RPD order. That basically renders the process useless for us. Blender and meshmixer for the win when it comes to editing and aligning meshes.

Hi, John. What are the reasons to align the scans in dummy order? Could you please share few examples? it should be possible to align using Align to bite function, or it does not work as expected?

The situation gets worse when you change the bite with Virtual Articulator as that changed position is not kept in the scan when exported using the Additional Scan. There should be an option to keep the changed position when exporting using the Additional scan. "Keep Additional Info" doesn't do that. I wonder what additional info it keeps frankly.

See my post two posts ago. This bite thing is really, really a problem. We should be able to add a new bite, align the arches to it, and have every single bit of info (margins, segmentation, implant position, annotations, everything) move with the model. Changing the bite is really common in this field, things that should take minutes take hours so no good reason

Yes!

How isn’t John Wilson not a paid consultant for 3Shape?

Yes!!!

Couldn’t agree more…..you know 3Shape will add a fee if they change and allow that!

Can’t wait

Absolutely missing! The align to bite is not working great for me. I am always using Exocad to align the scan data on complex cases before importing into 3Shape.

3shape has a serious problem with changing the jaw relationship. Opening vertical, moving jaws around, it's always such a disaster. If you open a bite and then copy the case the designs and the models disassociate, model builder does funny things, additional scans tool sometimes doesn't save the position as it is on the screen, but saves the model in some other position. In short. Please for the love of God, when I move the jaw positions and save it, can we just delete everything else that is confusing the software? Can't I just move the models around and it just works for everything? What is the problem here, the raw scan and the MB scan conflicting with each other? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Will Varda Indeed, there is a room for improvements. For now I can offer set of workarounds that can help you to overcome these problems (not sure about Additional Scans): 1. Lock button should be clicked to apply the changes in the relative position of Virtual Articulator (further VA). 2. Always close VA tool before leaving Dental Designer. Otherwise you get designed restorations misaligned in Dental Manager's Order Preview and in Model Builder. In case you forgot to close VA before leaving Dental Designer you should reopen the case in Dental Designer, open VA, close VA, then just close the case in Dental Designer and continue your workflow. 3. After using Standard Copy operation for a case with changed jaw relative position the copied case should be reopened in Dental Designer, and be clicked next-next till the end. May be just reopening VA and closing the case will also help.

Also, dare I dream, can we finally have it so if we move the jaw the restoration/implant positions/margin lines/everything goes with it? As if we picked up the model off the table with the crowns on it and moved it?

21.2 has been working very good for me and the implementation of editing additional scans is welcomed but fell short with the tools provided.

If I was to make a suggestion adding the plane cut tool to the list of available tools at the very least and if there was a lasso style tool to select and discard it would be even better.

In order form for impression scanning, there is an option for pre-preparation but when selected, the option doesn’t show as a step in the scan software.
