Publishing Configurations

Server-based distribution and update of presets
for material, supports and printer configurations

Scene Layout

  • Auto-orientation for dental objects wrt indication
    type, insertion direction and preparation region
    (optimized for supports)
  • Automated nesting of objects on the platform


  • GPU-based slicing with near instant updates
    for preview generation
  • Direct Volume Rendering for 3D slice previewing
  • Multi-sampling Anti-Aliasing (MSAA) with
    4-points regular sampling grid

Integration with other Dental Applications

  • Direct launch of HS with export and management of printing object
    queues from other software (ZFXManager, ExoDB, others can be configured)
  • Recognition of dental treatments by reading the construction info
  • Recognition of the preparation lines and avoiding support
    structures in those regions

Support Structures

  • Smart support point placement algorithm
    which is based on a slice-based simulation of the
    printing process
  • Support platforms with different types
    (solid, triangulated, grid)
  • Support platform carvings with parametrized
    patterns (e.g. hatching or checkerboard)
  • Editing and storing preset support structure,
    platform and carvings configurations
  • Automatic configuration wrt indication type
    and/or material
  • Update of recommended preset configurations
    from the server (Resellers can add
    and configure remotely)

Computational Compensation
of DLP Errors

  • Scaling (material shrinkage)
  • Offsetting in XY (shrinkage, overexposure)
  • Z-Compensation (print-through, overexposure)
  • Automatic configuration via material settings
  • Transfer function (grey scale for allowing configuration
    of antialiasing)

Support of other printers

  • Support of low-cost printers with input formats photon,
    photons, pws, .cbddlp, .ctb, .pw0, .zip with Gecode
  • Download of preset configuration for
    known and supported printers
  • User can customize and store configurations
    for not-yet supported (low-cost) printers
