New Advanced Scan Module is now available

The Advanced Scan module is now available, together with the 1.70 update of the ObiScanner Management Software.

The Advanced Scan module allows ObiScanner to acquire an higher resolution 3D model, bringing the number of polygons up to 300.000, and capturing both the ears and ear lobes of the patients.

The new Advanced Scan option opens to the possibility of a very accurate superimposition with an Intra-oral scan, following the protocols explained here and here.

If you have purchased the Full Bundle, you will get it just by updating your software version from ObiScanner Management.
Remember to also update the ObiScanner Framework to the newest version (download it here).

In any other case, please contact us at hello@obiscanner.com to purchase it at a discounted price, available only to the first 100 customers.

You will find the video tutorial on how to use the new Advanced Scan module here
