Further indications can be covered by CAD points or by Add-on modules, please look at the .
Design better crowns and save time with manual trimming. With the Virtual Articulator, the dental technician can perform all the classical jaw movements (protrusion, retrusion, laterotrusion, mediotrusion and immediate side shift) virtually, enabling complete articulation in a single purely digital workflow.
Design high-end anatomical crowns and bridges. The Smile Composer makes it easy for you to achieve high-end aesthetic results. You can work with "Full Smiles", i.e. the relationship between the teeth is retained and can be mirrored 1:1. Improved free-form tools also guarantee a fast design process.
Extend the digital range. You can use Splint Designer™ to manufacture splints, bite guards, surgical masks and other orthodontic appliances. The modelled splints can be manufactured with milling machines and also with 3D printers.
Custom configuration using the modular principle. A range of add-on modules is available for the Dental SystemTM CAD software. You can use them for additional indications, making your business more competitive.
AbutmentDesigner™ is an add-on module for the 3shape DentalDesigner™ software. It allows individual one and two-piece abutments to be produced.
AbutmentDesigner uses its own algorithms to detect the implant position and alignment. It guarantees the maximum precision that is essential for producing implant bridges, for example.
The third-generation 3shape software makes it possible. Use Denture Design™ to design dentures in fast and accurate workflows and take advantage of innovative tools for adjusting denture occlusion and functions.
Denture DesignTM has been developed to improve the clinical performance and to reduce the time and number of appointments required for working on the patient during denture treatment.
The Model Builder™ add-on module enables dental technicians to virtually construct working models. Laboratory models are very simple to produce based on these models.
The Model Builder™ add-on module makes it easy for you to manufacture laboratory models, including implant models, for multiple indications directly from digital impressions and scans of physical impressions.
Implant Bars & Bridges™
Precision by mouse-click. Implant bars and bridges for removable and fixed dentures often form complicated geometrical patterns and demand maximum precision. The Implant Bars & BridgesTM add-on module simplifies the virtual design process.
Implant Bars & Bridges™ supports standard and free-form bars and enables virtual adding of attachments, Locator® and retention drilling for simple and efficient bar design. Implant bridges can be designed directly with gingiva.
Removable Partial Design
Removable Partial Design is a special software for virtual creation of removable dentures. The Dental SystemTM partial denture add-on covers all phases of design of rigid and flexible components of a partial denture.
Design clasps and aesthetic, functional occlusal onlays, test and block undercuts and display them and enjoy even more freedom for modelling with the new tool for defining the areas for stippled wax. The Removable Partial Design™ partial denture software is currently only available as software; designs cannot currently be manufactured in the cara production centre.
Optimise processes and reduce costs. Directly scanning silicone and alginate impressions with the Impression Scanning add-on module represents an excellent opportunity for both the dental laboratory and the dental practice to optimise their working processes and to save costs.
The high-resolution scanner with optimised angles combined with adaptive scan technology patented by 3shape even allows deeper anterior preparations to be scanned. Impression scans, just like plaster model scans, can be imported directly for further revision by the system.
It’s so easy to bring orthodontics directly into the laboratory. The Ortho Analyzer™ analytical software enables you to create virtual setups in this field and to export treatment plans.
Digital situation models and treatment plans and also indirect adhesive technique – this add-on to Dental System™ gives you more to offer customers and patients!
The ideal entry level package for small laboratories that want to offer all indications without having to pay high licence fees. With CAD Points, you only pay on demand, i.e. when you actually use the software. You retain complete flexibility with a wide range of indications at a low price.
The cara CAD Points starter package allows you to use the Abutment Designer™ , Denture Design™ , Implant Bars & Bridges™ , Model Builder™ , Ortho Analyzer™ and Removable Partial Design add-on software modules by paying with CAD Points as required without needing a licence

CAD Points or a licence?
Your laboratory can use cara CAD Points to expand its production of abutments, implant bars & bridges and partial dentures slowly and surely. If your monthly production increases, at some point the break-even point will be reached at which purchase of a licence for the corresponding add-on software modules will be more cost-effective.
You can simply upgrade your software then, and enjoy the advantages of unlimited production. Below are a few examples of when the purchase of a licence may be to your benefit.
|Software module||Units per month|
|Abutments||~ 6 units/month|
|Implant Bars & Bridge||~ 2 units/month**|
|Partial denture||~ 7 units/month|
* Calculation based on list prices and an investment over 4 years
** Assuming that the customer already has the Abutment Designer licence. Price based on an implant bar on 3 implants.
CAD Points are not available for the Ortho software modules!
