Today, the force of innovation drives collaboration across various fields, unlocking unprecedented possibilities. Recently, Medit, a prominent leader in the dental industry, has embarked on a remarkable collaboration with Flashforge. This partnership seamlessly integrates their innovative intraoral scanning technology with Flashforge's leading 3D printing software, heralding a remarkable revolution for the entire industry. This article delves into the origin, outcomes, and industry implications of this cross-industry collaboration.
Medit is a company dedicated to developing 3D intraoral scanners for clinical applications. While experiencing rapid growth, its market share in the global dental market doubles annually. With professionals from various fields, its exceptional technologies as well as product competitiveness, the company solidified its position as a global industry leader within a year of being listed. Through digital innovation, it has redefined the dental healthcare experience.
Flashforge, a 3D printing software solution provider, offers highly personalized solutions to customers through its multi-field expertise, ongoing innovative technologies, comprehensive and flexible offerings, and top-quality support services. Its user-friendly interface and good user experience enable efficient utilization of different functions, while exceptional technical support further ensures their success. No matter what industry customers are in, Flashforge meets their needs with its innovative and diversified solutions, helping customers stand out in a highly competitive market.
Medit's intraoral scanning technology finds widespread application in orthodontics, implant, restoration, education, and research, etc. Renowned for its exceptional precision and high resolution, it captures intricate oral structures and teeth details, supporting precise diagnosis and treatment. Medit's technology boasts swift scan speeds for efficient scan completion, enhancing the productivity of dentists and technicians. With intelligent recognition and alignment, it can automatically identify the position of the scanned object, streamlining workflows and improving accuracy. Notably, Medit's scan software features a user-friendly interface, enabling easy operation, design, and analysis for dentists and technicians. Its openness supports various file formats and data imports, facilitating integration with other software and devices.
During traditional manufacturing, medical workers shall undergo complex and time-consuming processes, including impression-creating (using impression materials to copy oral structures), impression-taking (sending to dental laboratories), denture fabricating, trial fitting and adjusting, finalizing design, and final production. However, through digital technology, medical workers can directly use intraoral scanners to scan the mouth and process data via the software, generating a digital 3D model of the patient's oral cavity. A designed denture model is then sent to a 3D printer, enabling a more precise and efficient production process. In this collaboration, Flashforge and Medit, a well-known oral scanning brand, have brought users a novel experience in the digital dentistry, enhancing practical application scenarios.
Medit seamlessly integrates its intraoral scanning software with Flashforge's slicing software. Now, users can directly access Flashforge's slicing software within Medit's intraoral scanning software after completing oral scans. This means dentists can complete data capture, design, and launch the slicing software within the same interface, streamlining the entire 3D printing process without toggling between multiple software or intricate data conversions. The integration of intraoral scanning and 3D printing brings higher efficiency and convenience to the dental industry, allowing medical workers to focus more on diagnosis and treatment. Also, this helps reduce errors and enhances work precision and quality.
