ModuleWorks Dental CAM now integrated in exocad’s ChairsideCAD software

January 25, 2022

exocad’s ChairsideCAD is a complete open-architecture software platform for single-visit-dentistry. It connects to third-party intraoral scanners, milling machines and 3D printers to provide a fully integrated and easy-to-use dental CAD/CAM workflow. exocad offers an integration with ModuleWorks Dental CAM to drive the CAM part of the workflow. The ModuleWorks software takes the CAD data as input and automatically generates high-performance, collision-free toolpaths for electronic transfer to on-site milling machines or 3D printers.

The entire ChairsideCAD workflow is automated and designed to be intuitive, enabling dentists to easily step into digital dentistry and offer complete digital services for single-visit treatment.
