Our next-generation scan software, colLab 2017 makes the scanning work-flow as productive as possible by providing Identica users with new scan strategies and optimum scan data quality.


Flexible multi-die 16

Existing multi-dies can scan 8 dies. To improve productivity, our exclusive Flexible multi-die has been redesigned to double capacity up to 16 dies.


Interproximal area scan for orthodontics

Capture important interproximal areas with colLab software and an Identica scanner.


Wax-up bottom surface scanning

Optimized functionality with wax-up bottom scanning allows you to scan both the extrados and the intrados of a wax-up to perfectly copy the pontic area for much more accurate design.

Exporting implant position file

Independent implant position detection functionality ensures correct placement of implants. Due to this function, various CAD programs and implant positions can be linked.

Calibration at anytime 

The new calibration UI in colLab 2017 lets you easily check calibration status at any time. Also, schedule calibration reminders to maintain optimum accuracy in your lab.

Flip the occlusion scan data

The new feature “Flip Occlusion” will give you more freedom when scanning the occlusal up-side down by reversing the occlusion to its standard orientation

Importing & exporting STL in any scan step

You can use the STL data that you already have in any scan step, such as a diagnostic model or a stock abutment. In addition, if you need an STL file of the occlusal scan data, you can extract it by using the export function in colLab scan software.

Importing STL data obtained from an IOS as a diagnostic model

When you have IOS scan data of pre-preparation teeth, you don’t need to create a separate diagnostic model and scan data. The patient's scan data can be imported and used for alignment and merging with other scan data in the diagnostic model scan step.

Importing a stock abutment's STL data in high resolution

When scanning a model with stock abutments, it is possible to import the existing high-resolution STL data of the abutment and align and merge it with other scan data without having to scan the stock abutment separately at the scan stage of preparation teeth.

Importing STL data of a previously scanned antagonist arch

If the same antagonist teeth are used for the same patient’s case, existing STL data can be reused. This eliminates the need for additional antagonist teeth scans.


Importing STL data of preparation teeth from another scanner

When scanning unsectioned models, the adjacent teeth can be scanned with a desktop model scanner accurately. However, it is very difficult to scan the preparation tooth of a solid model with a desktop scanner. Instead, it can be easily scanned with a hand-held scanner and combined with scan data from the desktop scanner to create perfect scan data of the unsectioned model.


Exporting only occlusion scan STL data when required

When you need an STL file of occlusion scan data, which is usually used for aligning the maxillary and mandible without being saved separately, you can use the exporting function to easily extract the occlusion data as an STL file.
