CIMsystem Improves CAM Software Offerings for the Dental Industry

The new MillBox builds on the strong standard set by SUM3D Dental

Since 1999, CIMsystem’s experience and competency has grown to become a worldwide reference for the CAD/CAM software and technology development. Customer care is one of the company’s strengths, together with a market approach that takes into account the constant changes of product development.

CIMsystem continues to invest in the development of innovative technologies, keeping the existing ones up-to-date, maintaining a strong working relationship with customers, and taking care of their specific requests.

Many software updates are released immediately as they are being developed, so customers can keep up with the technological evolution of a developing market. Software solutions provided by CIMsystem are not merely product of engineering; they can convert customer ideas into reality. It is necessary to also consider the needs of market, production, sales, and support.

CIMsystem’s portfolio includes a wide range of solutions for the manufacturing industry: 3D CAD and CAM systems, reverse engineering solutions, data transmission software, many Rhinoceros™ plug-ins, and different products for the dental industry. The company’s successful dental applications have had a large impact in expanding CIMsystem’s presence in today’s marketplace.

Today the company has over 10,000 customers worldwide, including 5,000 in dentistry. Company turnover has increased by 25%; the professional team and the worldwide network of dealers and OEM are continuously growing.

Based in Italy, CIMsystem opened additional offices in 2013 in Hong Kong, China, and Louisville, Kentucky. This has allowed CIMsystem to provide both sales and technical support for the company’s clients and partners in Asia and the Americas. In August, CIMsystem USA moved to a larger office to accommodate growth in the US market and also to make larger training spaces for clients.

SUM3D Dental

SUM3D is the company’s longest running flagship product: a flexible and powerful CAM solution able to perform fast and effective CNC toolpaths for machine tools and robot programming. It produces some of the best results in fields of application such as mold-making, models, shipyards, mechanical, petrochemical, and medical. Specific modules are engineered for wood, marble, and precious metal machining.

The company has applied its knowledge capital to provide new solutions for the digital dentistry field, creating high-tech products to improve performance, quality, and operating efficiency in dental laboratories and clinics around the world. Officially released in 2007, SUM3D Dental continues to have great success thanks to its ease of use and a wide range of automated solutions tailored to the needs of dental laboratories. Customers always want flexible, reliable, and easy tools that yield the best results in the shortest possible time. The most recent release includes a number of brand-new features created in response to the needs of laboratories and partners. The “Rest Material Visualization,” “Multi Layered (or Pre-shaded)” stock management, “Post-Sintered Milling” (or Laser Metal Fusion), and “Premilled Abutment” features are now perfected. These are just some of the main improvements introduced.

SUM3D Dental also offers integration with select CAD software (3Shape™, Egs, Exocad®), working directly within the CAD and allowing direct data exchange, which vastly reduces production times.


MillBox, developed for milling any variation of CAD/CAM material, is emerging as the company’s new leading product. It is offered in the form of an upgrade for existing SUM3D Dental users, or new users can purchase MillBox as their standard CAM. MillBox utilizes the same toolpath creation technology as SUM3D, thus combining the easiest CAM interface with the unmatched product stability and performance of SUM3D. Equipped with a simple-to-follow yet innovative user interface, MillBox simplifies the nesting process and expedites toolpath creation so laboratory technicians can focus on more important day-to-day tasks. With little to no manual steps needed in the nesting process, new users can become operational immediately. MillBox is a reliable partner that will improve your laboratory’s workflow, an advanced and easy CAM software that optimizes time and reduces waste to deliver the best return on your investment.

SUM3D Dental and the other dental solutions have been developed working side-by-side with most major milling centers in Italy and in the US. Users can achieve desired results in just a few simple steps, reducing material consumption, production times, and costs.
