cara Print CAM 2.0 – by dental technicians, for dental technicians
Included in the purchase of cara Print 4.0, cara Print CAM has been upgraded to follow the principles of intuitive design, making it easy and reliable for both beginners and experienced users. Developed in cooperation with dental technicians who understand the needs of labs, the software is easy to integrate into existing workflows.
It uses open STL files, provided by the dental CAD software of your choice, such as Dental System (3Shape), DentalCAD (exocad) or DWOS CAD (Dental Wings).

Digital Light Projection (DLP) vs. Laser
Digital Light Projection is quicker, more economical and more accurate than laser light technology. It can deliver highly uniform and aesthetic surfaces that are unattainable using laser technology.
Laser-based 3D printers ‘trace’ each layer, point for point, line for line. With DLP technology, cara Print 4.0 projects an entire layer in a single flash, with a finer level of detail than laser – for greater precision, faster production and smoother surfaces.
Automatic speed adjustment
Unlike many other 3D printers, cara Print 4.0 automatically adapts printing speed according to the accuracy requirements of the current layer, often reaching speeds in excess of 100 mm/hour (e.g. when printing temporary support structures).
Variable layer thickness (30 - 100 μm)
The ability to vary layer thickness means that you can select the optimal balance of accuracy and speed. This makes it possible to optimize the process for appliances that don’t have high accuracy requirements (e.g. impression trays) by increasing the layer thickness and thereby reducing build time.
