Ackuretta, a global manufacturer of 3D printing solutions for dental professionals, has recently launched the new AI-assisted 3D slicing software — ALPHA AI. The new 3D printing slicing software is an evolution of Ackuretta’s ALPHA 3D and includes several improvements from its predecessor.
Extensive research has driven Ackuretta towards artificial intelligence as the next logical step in their journey to make 3D dental printing accessible to everyone. Moreover, such technology provides predictable results every time — building upon Ackuretta’s signature reliability.
One-click to success
ALPHA AI offers a streamlined process to guarantee success and eliminate human error: Import an STL file on the software, click the icon for the desired application and start printing in seconds.
Ayush Bagla, CEO of Ackuretta, said: “Up to 75% of 3D printed applications result in failure because of poor orientation. Some clinicians and dental technicians have to go through a learning curve — which leads them to experience failed prints due to a few reasons, such as choosing the wrong printing parameters, not using the correct resin, lack of training, and dealing with complex dental 3D printing software.
“ALPHA AI comes to solve that exact problem. It uses machine learning to analyse data from thousands of real designs and comes up with the optimal orientation for a given application, including adding the necessary supports. Users can achieve the best result with just one click.”
Universally compatible STL format for CAM software
Unlike most 3D printing slicing software in the market, ALPHA AI allows its users to orient an application, add the necessary supports, and save it not only as i3dp and ibf (Ackureta Solution proprietary file format) but also as an STL file.
Ackuretta aims to empower its customers by offering them a truly open system — everything from 3D printing solutions to digital dentistry software. Users could configure the print they want on ALPHA AI (such as placing it with the right orientation and adding supports) and export the STL file to use on any other 3D printing CAM software specific to non-Ackuretta devices for printing.
Regular updates and improvements
Ackuretta’s ALPHA AI is capable of orienting and creating supports for splints, crowns, bridges, and surgical guides. Moreover, the company compromises to release constant updates every three months to add new features and functions to the dental 3D printing software.
How to download and start using Alpha AI?
ALPHA AI is available in two versions: Standard and Premium. The Standard version of the software maintains the original features from ALPHA 3D with an improved UI/UX and includes a 14-day free trial to test the upgrades included in the Premium version. After the trial, users can buy a 30-day or 365-day subscription to the Premium version.
