Medit iScan V1.4 Release Notes
Improvement of UI/UX
The user interface is designed to be simpler and is categorized for the convenience of users.
Icon size has been reduced to make more space for the scan data.
If the scan stage meets the requirements, a check icon will be displayed to let the user know which stages are complete.
Tools that can be used only for the occlusion have been moved to the ‘Occlusion Scan Stage’.
‘Smart Data Cleaning’ which is related to data editing has been moved to the ‘Trim’ section.
‘Tools’ have been repositioned according to their functions.
The ‘Model Display Mode’ has been moved to the right-side bar – the touch screen controls are set to resemble a smartphone touch screen controls, and the ‘Pan’, ‘Zoom In/Out’, ‘Zoom Fit’ icons have been removed. They can be restored under settings.
The application can be used with a touch screen on the PC. For users running it on a laptop, trackpad keyboard controls have also been added.
Improvements in reliability map and post-processing algorithm have been made. The window which appears after the user clicks ‘Done’ previously showed three options for the 3D model. This has been simplified to two options for the convenience of users. You can also check the important conditions here before post-processing.
Smart Scan Filtering
This feature removes unnecessary soft tissue data which is the biggest challenge while scanning. Three filter options are available.
The previous basic filters (1,2,3) have been optimized and this filter is similar to the level one filter from the previous version. This is the basic filtering level and does not filter unwanted tissue. This option is useful for edentulous arch or plaster model cases.
Teeth + Gingiva
This filter removes soft tissue that interferes with the scan, leaving only the necessary gingiva. You can use this option for most general scan cases.
This filter scans only the teeth. This option is effective for when you want to scan only the teeth as an additional scan, after scanning using the ‘Teeth + Gingiva’ filter.
You can scan your face with the i500, and also import 3D face data (STL, OBJ, PLY) and bone data (STL, OBJ, PLY) from an external source which have been converted from DICOM files taken via CT. The compatible data pairs can be aligned.
The ‘Measure’ tool allows you to measure the distance, angle, length, area, etc. of the 3D scanned data or section lines in iScan to check the progress of teeth preparation, height of the occlusion, as well as length of the teeth. The deviation result of two data sets can also be checked via the color map.
Reorder Scan Stages
Users can change the order of the scan stages.
Reposition Scan Data on The Occlusion Plane of Articulator
The scanned data is placed on the occlusion plane so that you can manually reposition it in case of incorrect positioning. In addition to that, the aligned result can be made compatible with the virtual articulator in exocad.
Improvement of A.I. Abutment Matching
You can save the margin line for abutments in the A.I. Abutment Matching dialog box. After you register the margin line, you can skip the process of drawing the margin line for each case in the dental clinic or lab. This saves a lot of time and unnecessary processing.
After the registered abutment is imported, the height is adjusted automatically or manually according to the scanned abutment. In this way, the saved abutments can be used for various cases.
Change Occlusion Target
Previously, occlusion alignment was only possible by using the maxilla and the mandible scan data in the ‘Scan Occlusion’ stage. Now, you can also use the pre-operation maxilla and the pre-operation mandible scan data.
The ‘Overview’ feature has been added where you can view all the data simultaneously when you are not in any scan stage. Click the icon on the tree view on the left to hide or show each data set and use the slider to adjust the transparency.
Improvement of Replay
The ‘Scan Replay’ has been improved with options to choose scan steps. This helps the user view the scan replay video step-by-step.
Improvement of Post Processing Performance
Alignment of scan data is much more accurate in comparison to previous versions, resulting in better results with a smaller file size. Post-processing time has been reduced by about 20%.
A screen capture feature and its corresponding tools have been added to the top right of the application window.
Improvement in Reliability Map
More conditions have been added to the Reliability Map for higher accuracy as compared to previous versions.
For users having difficulty in differentiating red and green colors, you can replace the green color with blue for the reliability map. Go to settings and ‘Reliability Map Color Mode’ to set the color.
Suitable Temperature for Calibration
The data accuracy increases if the temperature of the i500 during calibration is similar to the temperature while scanning.
The added feature to heat the device can be used in cases where the temperature of the i500 right before calibration is low.
Color Adjustment of Color Scan Data
The color processing algorithm and model rendering has been improved to display the scan data in a more natural way with more texture detail.
Changes and Improvement in ‘Settings’
The previously separate options have now been combined into single options of ‘Show Scanning Information’ and ‘Start Automatic Scan’.
The option to ‘Always scan in HD mode’ has been added for users who always scan in HD.
An option for the notification of external light detection (Beta) has been added. A strong light shining on the dentist chair can immensely affect the scan data, especially the anterior teeth data.
You can choose to display either three or six icons on the right side for ‘Model Control’.
The features ‘Use GPU’ and ‘Remove Soft Tissues’ have been removed as beta features and added as regular features. While using the GPU, a feature to check the basic specifications has been added and a message is displayed for each condition.
‘File Size’ and ‘Surface Roughness’ from the ‘Complete’ dialog box have been moved to the settings menu.
Improvement in Guide Messages
Guide messages for the user have been added and improved to make our product more user-friendly.
The user cannot get the best performance if the laptop power cable is not connected. A guide message is displayed in this case.
The scan strategy images and corresponding explanations have been improved so that the user can scan easily and correctly.
An ‘Overview’ has been added for the 3D model to help users operate the model conveniently.
Improved manual alignment in every step and a unified UI/UX.
Improved color bar algorithm in each stage to add the maximum and minimum value of deviation in extra boxes for calculation and to modify the maximum and minimum values on the color bar. Additionally, resolution control has been added to all the color bars to unify the UI/UX.
Improved algorithm for ‘Global Soft Tissue Filtering’ to prevent the tooth area from being deleted. It is no longer a beta version and has been changed to a regular feature.
Improved algorithm for ‘Scan Depth’, and the suitable filter values for each scan depth, are now automatically applied. It will automatically adjust to capture most of the data even when using deep scan depths, helping to scan deep areas without filtering out the necessary data.
Improved algorithm for ‘Scan Speed’ to calculate and display the scan speed more accurately than previous versions.
Improved ‘HD Camera’ algorithm to avoid shaky pictures taken with the i500 device. When you press the button, the camera automatically detects when there is minimum movement and maximum stability.
Improved saving algorithm for safe and secure storage of data.
