Carbon Platform Improvements: March 2021

Carbon is innovating at every stage of product development, expanding what 3D printing can do and constantly raising the bar in quality and efficiency. Here is how the Carbon platform improved in March 2021:

Improved Efficiency

Introducing the Carbon Design Engine™

We’re excited to announce that customers now have access to Carbon Design Engine™: a sophisticated design tool that automates the process of creating performance-oriented lattices, saving design engineers significant time and effort. With the release of Design Engine to all Carbon customers, we are giving better design control within the product development lifecycle and helping users iterate faster for more effective designs.

Streamline Clear Aligner Production Workflows

Carbon is now a Validated Technology Partner with the 3Shape Clear Aligner Enterprise platform: a comprehensive software solution for designing clear aligners. Through this partnership, labs can ensure seamless file compatibility between 3Shape and the Carbon L1 Production Solution: an end-to-end 3D printing platform for producing clear aligners at high volumes. From initial intraoral scanning to final production, Carbon and 3Shape are streamlining clear aligner production workflows for a more patient-centric experience.
