In Chicago, Delcam demonstrated its latest DentMILL software for milling implant restorations. Software enhancements include:
Improved integration with the DentCAD design software, including a new interface that features bolder and clearer icons and a reduced number of toolbars to allow maximum screen space.
Improved nesting allows more efficient use of materials. For instance, restorations are oriented in the optimum alignment so the most cost-effective part of the block can be used.
The milling templates have been extended to a wider range of materials, including titanium, cobalt-chrome and glass ceramics.
New strategies offer smoother machining to give the best possible surface finish.
Faster calculation times thanks to new background-processing capabilities. For instance, toolpath calculations can be started on the first items added to the block while the remaining restorations are still being positioned.
Closer integration between DentMILL and Delcam's OrderManager workflow management software so the system is automatically updated with manufacturing data as it's generated.
