Copenhagen, October 1st, 2014 – 3Shape, a global leader in 3D scanners and CAD/CAM software solutions and Zfx GmbH, a leading provider of dental oral rehabilitation products, today announced the addition of the Zimmer Zfx abutment library to 3Shape Dental System™, supported by new software capabilities within 3Shape’s Dental System™ solution.
Users of 3Shape Dental System™ will now be able to design implant cases using Zimmer Zfx abutments that include both original and compatible-with Zimmer Zfx products.
3Shape users now gain access to the wide range of Zimmer Zfx prosthetic components including the option to connect to the Zfx milling center directly from the 3Shape Dental System™ interface. Technicians can now work locally with Zimmer Zfx titanium bases for making two-piece abutments, or choose to send designs to the Zfx Milling Center and receive single piece abutments in titanium.
