We accept digital impression from any intraoral scanning system capable of producing 3D images in STL (Stereolithography) file format. Major scanner brands utilising this format are Planmeca (E4D) Planscan™, 3M™ TrueDefinition Scan, Cadent iTero™, Carestream CS etc.
If you are unsure whether your scanner can produce STL files, please contact your scanner provider or manufacturer for clarification.
Carestream CS scans are sent to SCD via Carestream Connect (CS Connect).
Scans for other scanners can be sent to SCD via DropBox*. The general process includes the following steps.
* Although we nominate DropBox for file sharing, you may choose to use other file transfer or cloud storage platforms (Google Drive, Mircrosoft OneDrive, etc.) that you find suitable.
Please note that these steps might vary slightly depending on the scanning system. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (ROI) 048 8772 7100 or (NI/UK) 028 8772 7100 for further inquiries.
