We accept digital impressions from any intraoral scanning system capable of producing 3D images in STL (Stereolithography) file format such as Carestream CS.
If you are unsure whether your scanner can produce STL files, please contact your scanner provider or manufacturer for clarification.
Carestream CS scans are sent to SCD via Carestream Connect (CS Connect).
Scans for other scanners can be sent to SCD via DropBox*. The general process includes the following steps.
* Although we nominate DropBox for file sharing, you may choose to use other file transfer or cloud storage platforms (Google Drive, Mircrosoft OneDrive, etc.) that you find suitable.
Please note that these steps might vary slightly depending on the scanning system. Please email [email protected] or call 09 579 8790 (Auckland) or 07 346 0516 (Rotorua) for further inquiries.
