CAD-Ray is proud to announce the release of its newest offering, Clinux CAD-design software. Clinux (an abbreviation of “Clinical User Experience”) is the result of collaboration by a team of experts hailing from the most reputable and recognizable brands in dental technology. It was designed by those who know the pain points of the best existing programs, and executed a plan to eliminate the confusing barriers to simple plug and play design.
One of the hurdles of using design software has always been that it was created with lab technicians in mind, the rationale being that technical staff would be using it more than clinicians. For this reason, it is no wonder that many offices still send their scans to labs to be designed “by the experts.” However, with the boom in digital and CAD/CAM dentistry, many offices are finally making the leap to bringing some or all of that workflow in-house to be done chairside. While there are many solutions available to incorporate one or more aspects of the digital dentistry workflow into your practice, it’s safe to say that the innovative design of Clinux is a turning point for design software.
The most exciting feature of Clinux (that also sets it apart from all others) is that it is the only design program available that can create a cloud-based file; no storage required. This is a game-changer for everyone looking to pair another stand-alone scanner with milling units belonging to another system. With STL output, no startup costs and subscription fees as low as $66/month, it is significantly less expensive than any other stand-alone design options in its class, and a perfect complementary addition for those looking to increase the productivity of their CEREC, Ivoclar or Planmeca mill. The system is optimized for Medit, but compatible with all IOS, and in addition to STL, it conveniently accepts OBJ and PLY files.
As with all CAD-Ray products, support is unparalleled. Subscriptions include access to a training library, a closed social media group and instant messaging support, so assistance is available at a moment’s notice. Clinux: created with dentists in mind. Less time spent onboarding, less clicks to your finished designs, and clear, reasonable fees all result in the first dentist-friendly CAD design software. Completely independent and curiously intuitive, reasonably (and transparently) priced and very accommodating to workflow integration, Clinux will certainly be a product to watch for 2021 and beyond.
