Dental Questions

All Open Technologies scanners have an automatic calibration procedure and a calibration plate supplied with any scanner. For each scanner model, the calibration procedure is explained at the following links:

https://www.opentechnologies.it/support/video-tutorial/

N.B. we suggest to calibrate the scanner once the working temperature is reached, both of the scanner and of the surrounding room.

The light that normally is in a dental lab or in an office is not a problem for the scan. Nevertheless, we suggest to avoid to direct intense light sources on the scanning area.

White structured light. Not being a laser source, it is not dangerous for the users’ eyes.

First of all, we suggest to place the scanner in a room dedicated to digital machines, without dusts or manufacturing residues in the air. The normal dust that set over time can be cleaned from the scanner’s cover with a cloth.

WARNING: do not touch optics with hands or cloths! remove the dust in excess with a light compressed air spray! We suggest to recalibrate the scanner once these operations are carried out.

We suggest to recalibrate the scanner any time it is relocated or the support plane is moved. If the position is unchanged and the use of the machine is standard, we suggest the calibration every 2-3 months.

It is enough to send an email of request to support@scanner3d.it, including the following information:

– Serial number of the scanner (OPTREV-D-A… see following FAQ),

– Registration ID,

– Software version in use (for example: 4.5).

We will send you as soon as possible a new licence code to be pasted in the specific window.

On the back of any Open Technologies scanner, close to the power button, there is a label with all the legal data and the serial number of the scanner, which is similar to OPTREV-D-####.

The same information is mentioned at the margin of the software – lower one (for OpticalRevEng Dental) upper one (for Click and ScanWay).

All Open Technologies dental scanning software have constant and continuous updates, included with no additional cost.

All our scanning software automatically check the presence of a more updated version on our server and ask confirmation to the user before going on with the installation, that can be postponed. To force the manual research for an update, visit the dedicated Wiki pages.

The inner memory of the scanner contains a licence key. Once formatted, the scanner cannot work anymore and the licence can be restored only by your reseller, with a direct support of Open Technologies.

Generally, no. Almost every material is suitable for 3D scanning. For obvious reason, translucent, reflective or shiny objects may be problematic,those objects can either be scanned with a mattening agent or painted.

Yes it is, and no additional operations are required.
