Delcam has launched an upgrade to its DentCAD software, which includes improvements to the shaping of restorations such as crowns and bridges, enhancements to the design of dental bars and more flexible tools for the editing of abutments. 

According to the company, the improvements to the shaping tools in DentCAD provide better representation of fine details such as cusps and fissures on the tooth, while new methods are said to allow much more dynamic editing, with greater control over the final shape. 

An improved user interface has been added to give easier manipulation of the shape, dimensions and position of dental bars, and it is now possible to use multiple cross-sections in the same bar.

New options include the ability to edit the top shape of the abutment and to add a shoulder to the abutment. Improvements to the existing abutment-editing tools include options to add secondary draft to the side wall of the abutment and to flatten the top of the abutment.

Plus, DentCAD 2014 now incorporates four new libraries of implants from Bionumeric, Denracle, MIS and NT Trading.
