Welcome to out new ADT website. I have received inside word the the new 3Shape Chair side scanner will become available in the US next month. I have personally seen and scanned with the device. This is definitely the next generation scanner. The significant advancements I know are coming are:
Internal battery, one will not need to shut down the CPU to move it form one room to the next
No powder needed
Scan data available immediately
Full integration with 3Shape CAD. This CAD is the most widely used Lab CAD in the world.
This is a very exiting new product announcment as the Trios created the possibility of dramatically reducing manufacturing cycles for lab products.
