Benefits of 3Shape scanners

Scan directly

Use the articulator holder to insert the articulator into the E scanner and scan the bite directly.

Value for money

Our E scanners offer advanced scanning features and CAD design workflows at an affordable price.

Improve productivity

High scanning speeds let you complete more cases in less time. With the E scanners, scanning starts as soon as you place the model inside the scanner.

All-in-one scanning

Our D2000 scanner features industry-firsts like All-in-One Scanning and space for two models, so you can capture upper and lower models, all inserted dies, and occlusion information in a single scan.
