How RayWare Works

RayWare is both a print preparation suite and CAD software. Its primary function is to import, orient, and then slice models into printable layers, but it can also perform advanced functions such as scan closing and model trimming.


Print preparation

The core of RayWare is its print preparation features: importing models, orienting them on the build platform, and slicing them down into printable layers. Print preparation also encompasses the creation of supports, enabling your digitally-designed model to be printed without falling off the build platform. RayWare Desktop offers a set of printability checks run on every single model to ensure print efficacy before your hit the 'print' button.


Computer aided design

RayWare Desktop includes features such as Advanced Scan Repair and Plane Cutting. Features such as this are considered design features because they allow you to manipulate the model itself, rather than simply adding structure around it or moving it in virtual space. Taking raw intraoral scan data and performing automated trimming and basing, for example, requires advanced AI algorithms that manipulate the model itself.


A standalone software

RayWare Desktop's allows easy use of our 3D printers in an easy, downloadable installer that does not require an internet connection to use.
