  • Direct volume rendering for 3D slice previewing 
  • Multisampling anti-aliasing with 4-point regular sampling grid

Integration With Other Dental Applications

  • Direct launch of Hornet Studio with export and management of printing object queues from other software (ZFXManager, ExoDB, others can be configured)
  • Recognition of dental treatments by reading the construction info
  • Recognition of the preparation lines and avoiding support structures in those regions


Support Structures

  • Smart support point placement algorithm which is based on a slice-based simulation of the printing process
  • Support platforms with the different types (solid, traingulated, grid)
  • Support platform cravings with parametrized patterns (hatching or checkerboard)
  • Editing and storing preset support strucutre, platform and cravings configurations
  • Automatic configuration with reference to indication type and/or material
  • Update of recommended preset configurations from the server (Resellers can add and configure remotely)

Computational Compensation of DLP Errors

  • Scaling (material shrinkage)
  • Offsetting in XY (shrinkage, overexposure)
  • Z-Compensation (print-through, overexposure)
  • Automatic configuration via material settings
  • Transfer funkction (grey scale for allowing configuration of anti-aliasing)


Support of Other Printers

  • Support of third-party printers with various input formats such as -photon, -photons, .pws, .cbddlp, .ctb, .pw0, and .zip with G-code
  • Download of preset configuration for known and supported printers
  • Support of custom-built 3D printers
