    I have Seven of these coming...
    I think Five to arrive Friday or Monday Aug. 31st
    Most are already sold.
    No more Medits for me.
    The product was good, but the relationship and service from that company is garbage!
    Recently, the software for Medit has gone downhill.
    Probably because the brains left and started another company?

    Ex-Software engineer and ex-hardware engineer from Medit left and started DOF a couple years ago.
    This Second Generation scanner is suppose to be pretty bad-ass!
    First One was sold by B&D Dental and had a few bugs to work out in the very beginning.
    Now all development work is done, and time for me to jump onboard this ship!

    Many reseller of Medit now changing to DOF.

    I am excited to have this change.

    Nothing remain the same.....always changing technology!
    I think this is fun myself...?

    DOF has released the latest model SWING and I was shocked by it.................

    Its an amazing scanner , very stylish, very easy to handle and with an amazing quality of STL files............

    I dont know if the situation that Scott described above will be the future but definitely after the things I have received to my ears the last month I can say the following......

    1) 3SHAPE is looking ground dramatically day by day..............customers are complaining about the bugs in the latest version of 2015 and of course about that they have received yet from 3SHAPE the ''ALL IN ONE'' scanning promise for D1000 and D2000

    2) EXOCAD will take share in the market from 3SHAPE and Dental Wings and Sirona. Sirona has released their new 5axis with a lot of problems in everyday milling. Customers are complaining for various issues for hardware and software ones.

    3) Customers around the world now have started not to prefer the till now First class companies because of the reasons above, Annual fees, shit hardware and software products, empty promises with everyday problems I notice that they turn now to reliable and logical (from prices side) companies.........

    whats the price of the new DOF scanner? And, is there a reasonable workflow to scan with this scanner but design with 3Shape? All my designers are 3Shape trained but I'd love a better scanner.

    Joe DOF scanner is wonderful and works amazing. Its workflow is very very smooth........almost childish

    Its price in europe is 11000-12000 euros just the scanner, without any CAD software .

    As I realise you are located in you can contact with DMC (Scotty for us) directly (check the top of the post) or you can contact also with

    They have DOF scanners and other stuff.................

    Personally me I would buy now the SWING . Its the latest scanner of DOF.

    I have many friends using both DOF models and they are all amazed by them (all of them were current users of 3SHAPE and Dental Wings ).

    Please check the SWING

    DMC did you try the DOF HD already ??
  20. DMC

    DMC Scott Hudson

    No...I don't think so.

    The issue with the Swing was wrong USB cable!

    We did not look deep into the box for a true USB 3.0 BLUE cable.

    Now it works on all PCs no problem.
