exocad DentalCAD and exocad Chairside (CS)

What is Exocad?

  • Exocad is a powerful software that can import any STL, OBJ, or PLY file from any digital impression system, design a restoration, and fabricate it by outputting to either a milling or printing machine.  This is a very simplified explanation and CAD-Ray will guide you through the process.

What is the difference between Exocad DentalCAD and Exocad Chairside (C.S) ?

  • Exocad DentalCAD is utilized by over 35,000 users worldwide and is a very powerful software that allows you to design and fabricate a wide range of restorations, ranging from single units to bars and removable dentures.  It may be overkill or intimidating to a dentist or for chair-side, so the alternative is the C.S. platform.  Be aware that the DentalCAD system has many add-on modules that the C.S. version does not, as you can see in the attached table
