So I have the same question as above. I was told by Schein tech desk that the Dr's can mark the margin on their end and I should be able to see it marked when the wizard gets to that step in EXOCAD??? I f this is true, is it a newer version of the software and how do I explain to the Dr. how to do it? Thanks in advance!!!!
Are you talking Medit scanner or a different one?

Pretty sure you can't transfer margins from Trios scanners to Exocad.
Correct me if I'm wrong. If it's possible, please somebody do a write-up about it.

Ask them to explain the how-to, as they support "it's possible".
3sheep don't want to play with others, I'm even surprised you can export the files to any format. At least you can get coloured scans if the doc exports to .ply format.

Nothing against 3shape, it works and gets the job done. I just despise closed systems in general. :)

Can't be done if you're importing to Exocad as far as I know. Which I think is total BS, considering you have to buy a fkn 3Sheep dongle to just be able to use the communicate and import into exocad directly but it won't allow the margin marking or color to come through unless your designing on 3Shlt's software. Then sue other software companies (and lose) if they try to do anything even remotely similar. Also, the communicate portal loses cases all the time....very frustrating. 3Shake doesn't care about it's users...never has, just because your first to the show doesn't make you the best!!! 3Rant over with ;)

ya, like Align, the parent company of exocad , is as closed as they come.
True, but this doesn't affect exocad. For now anyway. I don't think it will, but who knows.

Buying a dongle just to use their ****ty solution is BS. At least the docs -the ones willing- can export to ply and have colour available.
Importing has zero advantages as far as I can tell.
To clarify. I didn't get the dongle to get cases from 3shape users, cause I live in a small city and I only have one doc that work with who uses 3shape. But when they first send me a job, they had "exported it for exocad" as their support told them. Import works fine, with job set and everything. But no margins, and no colour. So I asked for export in .ply and since they just send me the files via wetransfer/dropbox.

Update: New news on Itero. They have a multiple tiered pay system. However, if you want all access, no restrictions it was $5000, now they have reduced it to $2500 for labs. I heard if a Doc buys a new Itero that they were given a code similiar to Primescan Docs that they could give to the lab to access the portal but I haven't seen this so I can't confirm.
