    I have a 3Shape Trios want want to be able to convert the scans from dcm (full arch study models) to stl files. I had paid for a 3Shape Dental System license, but I cannot justify the price anymore. Are there any other solutions? My lab is able to take the scan and send me the dcm files, but this doesn't convert the occlusion scan. It was quite easy with the Dental System and being able to export the stl. Is there anything else that can do it like this?

    Hello! I am also looking to a reliable way to convert 3shape trios dcm files to stl models so that I can make some surgical guides for office since we place a lot of implants. I would go for the official 3shape software conversion but the price for a simple plugin/addition is ridiculous to the extreme.

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    Be patient. Due to pressure from the industry and some influential individuals (you are welcome) there will be an add on for the TRIOS scanner that allows stl output directly from the TRIOS software. Not sure if this will be free or a one time fee, but it IS coming...

    Or, make friends with a lab who has Inbox, and who will spend the 20 seconds to export the stl for you for nothing other than your business when you send it.

    Nothing from 3shape is free Chris. Usually the opposite, and very expensive.

    It is crazy they have a closed system and require so much money and fees.

    If they changed this attitude, the Trios would certainly dominate the market.

    Free software InVesalius does it too. You can section the parts out that you want as stl or the whole image.

    My question is: How do you get the files through direct connect if the only option to export is by having a DDX account? I have seen this as the only export option with direct connect.. is this locked on certain trios?

    I like your video, it seems simple enough except that most trios users I have seen dont have that UDX option enabled.
