Best virtual articulator with best physical counterpart

I am thinking of getting a benchtop/lab scanner as well when I eventually purchase my own IOS... At that time I will want a good virtual articulator that has compatibility with all of the major CAD software, but I could be swayed to one ring to rule them all if there is one that works well on the clinical side as well.

I am also interested in which one will be most compatible with future photogrammetry techniques.

I would absolutely LOVE if the quality of the photos I can take with my DSLR could accurately be applied to my scans as textures with accurate results. Is there an articulator that has photogrammetry appliance that transfers facebow and photogrammetry data in one shot?

I think that a combination of a CBCT, a facebow, a physical articulator, photogrammetry, and a virtual articulator is the holy grail of lab communication.

Photogrammetry for full arch implant cases is rapidly coming down in cost. In the other thread about Dandy supplying an IOS, I should have posted that THAT is a great opportunity for the lab to buy a piece of equipment and loan to the Dr.'s.

I would venture a guess that eventually this, if it hasn’t already, would be incorporated into 3Shape and Exocad were Artex,Denar, Panadent, SAM articulators would all be applicable with an open platform photogrammetry scanner would cover all the major articulators.

I was looking at DOF Snap. Similar to face hunter but not made by ZZ

I think there are several DOF users here, anyone tried the Snap?
Bellus 3D made a 3D phone scanning app but they are apparently shutting down, not sure if they were bought by someone or what happened. Heges is another facial scanner.

DOF Snap is a clinical product and it seems to use the DOF model scanning software for aligning the facial scan to the bite registration to the scanned cast. I guess that would mean you have to have physical models to scan. Not sure if you were going model-less if you could match the facial scan to the teeth directly in exocad, even though I know you can import it as an additional mesh…. I don’t have it so can’t confirm or deny either way, just what I’ve seen in videos.
