Converting 3Shape scan to STL

    I am looking to be able to print my models locally instead of waiting for the turn around time from my lab. Before I jump and purchase the printer, I need to figure out how to get an STL file from my scan. Currently it exports as a .3OXZ file. I know it can be done if I pay the fee for the ortho analyzer software (which I do not need... except for this). My lab has said that they could do the conversion for me, but I can see that getting old fast.

    Is there a way to convert these to a usable file without shelling out more money?

    Nothing is for free with 3Sheep. If you figure that out you could sell the idea until 3Shape closes the hole.

    See if you could dump your Trios on someone and invest in an open IO scanner :)

    if you has 3shape dentaldesigner system software, you can import your .3OXZ file into dentaldesigner software. Then you will find the order file in the local root directory with .dcm format.
    Install Delcam Exchange software and use it to transfer the .dcm to .stl format.
    (1) Import the .stl file to the software you have with model builder function to get virtual model.
    (2)Use meshlab software to edit that .stl file to get virtual model.
