Clinux CAD Offers New Possibilities for Dentists with Innovative Software


LAS VEGAS, NV (November 28, 2023) — Clinux CAD, the world’s first cloud-based CAD software designed for dentists, launches three innovations, expanding its range of possibilities for customers:

  1. New indication: Inlay/Onlay
    Dentists have a growing desire to 3D print their inlays and onlays. This trend is now satisfied by Clinux CAD’s new indication where users will find comfort in the familiar workflow, as with Crowns, and where multiple unit designs, even in opposing quadrants, are fully supported.
  2. New Margin Tool function: Semi-Automatic Margin
    Clinux users will now find a fully functioning semi-automatic margin finder when doing their next case. This feature allows a clinician to quickly complete the margin process, tracing the cursor and finding the shortest distance along an edge.
  3. Pay-per Export License
    This option allows access and use of Clinux CAD, paying only when a design is exported. This newly available license is in addition to monthly, annual, or a five-year license option, where all exports are unlimited, and are purchased in blocks of credits with the cost based on the volume of credits purchased.

“The new indications open up a world of possibilities for dentists wishing to make their own CAD designs,” stated Roddy MacLeod, Clinux Inc. CEO. “Multiple-unit, simultaneous designing unlocks profitable workflows for the dentist, whether restoring a quadrant in one visit or a patient’s new smile.”

The clinical convenience of the innovations allows users to mix and match the optimal design method on a tooth-by-tooth basis. MacLeod states, “As an example, a user may use Database design when there is no useful pre-existing occlusion or Copy design, which is ideal for reproducing wax-ups in the anterior. In any scenario, we have worked to ensure the maximum clinical outcome through guided and intuitive workflows.”
