 hyperDENT® Modules 


The following modules are available:

With hyperDENT® Options, you can add individual modules at any time to hyperDENT® Compact as well as hyperDENT® Classic licenses to perfectly match your requirements. 



Deep dive into the Features.

Auto part list

hyperDENT® can be directly connected to the CAD system’s output file, enabling the CAM to automatically recognize new designs and include them in the part list for further machining and management.



C-clamp function

hyperDENT® supports clamping devices which allow horizontal processing of dental parts (C-clamp). The utilization of lateral drilling and lateral details can now be fully automated.

hyperDENT_C-Clamp_01 hyperDENT_C-Clamp_02


Undercut areas

Undercut areas can be automatically selected, which saves time in implementing non-accessible or difficult-to-access areas.


Insertion direction of cavities

The optimal insertion direction of cavities can be determined automatically. hyperDENT® always determines the best possible machining direction to avoid undercuts or to correct them.


Trochoidal milling

With “trochoidal milling”, significant time savings in manufacturing dental parts of different materials can be achieved. This is due to the controllable removal rate and the extensive possibilities for further machining in hyperDENT®.


Colour gradient simulation (multi-layer-disk)

The colour of multi-layer coloured blanks (multi-layer disc) is transferred to the part so that they can be positioned in the blank according to the desired colour gradient.


Creation of customized templates

The hyperDENT® Template Generator Module enables you to create customized machining templates for all part types, which can then be tested using material removal simulation. Thanks to the simple and intuitive user interface, an experienced CAM user can immediately begin creating and modifying machining templates (i.e. cutting data, tools, milling strategies).

hyperDENT_Template Generator Module

Template Generator Lite

hyperDENT® Template Generator Lite was integrated to modify basic parameters, such as tool path distance, allowance or milling area boundary. This function enables users to make small adjustments independently without requiring the full version of the Template Generator Module.


Hybrid manufacturing of dental indications

The Hybrid Module combines additive and subtractive technologies in one workflow. Complex geometries, inner cavities and previously non-millable dental indications can be manufactured in high quantities with very high surface quality while using minimal material. Automated workflows, such as optimal nesting of the parts on the building platform, creating support structures or generating part-offsets in the areas to be post-milled, round off this all-in-one solution.


Milling of implants and geometries

With the Implant Module, customized abutments, implant bridges and bars can be manufactured from circular blanks. Due to intelligent categorization, only one master template is required for all systems. This module can also be combined with a millable interface geometry library for the most commonly-used implant systems. This library can be linked to a corresponding CAD dummy geometry library. It is easy to implement your own geometries as well. Despite possible inaccuracies in upstream systems, an automated exchange mechanism for geometries ensures that high-precision parts are manufactured.


Manufacturing of full dentures

The Denture Module enables digital manufacturing of full dentures with a significantly reduced processing time compared to the analog process. hyperDENT® is one of the first CAM software systems to provide specified and automated tool paths for this indication type. With the Denture Module, you can produce different workflow variations such as fully completed rows of teeth or pre-milled tooth pockets. Interfaces to diverse CAD systems are available and guarantee easy handling.


Glass-ceramic grinding

hyperDENT® enables simple and easy grinding of glass-ceramic using particular strategies for the optimal generation of tool paths. Where possible, the full tool circumference and length are used to extend tool life and guarantee high process stability.



User Interface

The hyperDENT® Compact user interface design has been completely revised in line with user requirements. A higher degree of automation has been achieved due to the extremely simplified user interface and also due to the managed workflow. The calculation of a project can now be completed in just three steps with the workflow bar continuously displaying the current process step.


Intelligent blank suggestion

hyperDENT® automatically recognizes the blank required for processing and suggests this in a dialogue box, including all known parameters, such as material and part measurements.

Automatic placement of parts and setting of connectors

The optimal placement of parts to be machined occurs directly after blank selection. If rotating or tilting is required, this will be done automatically according to machine capability. Simultaneously, the connector (holding pin) will be set using the default parameters.


Customized milling data output and milling activation (MachineConnect)

The milling process can already be activated on the machine during the calculation of tool paths. Direct communication between hyperDENT® MachineConnect and the machine checks the current status and actions are taken accordingly. The scope of possibilities is dependent on the machine.


Prefab milling

It is also possible to mill prefab blanks without the hyperDENT® Implant Module (4 and 5-axis milling in a closed fixture or 4 and 5-axis simultaneous mill turning). By utilizing various milling strategies in different areas, optimum surface quality is guaranteed. The required blank is automatically selected through the database’s configuration, saving time and preventing errors.


User-defined areas

By establishing user-defined areas, specific strategies and tools can achieve a high degree of flexibility. Categorizing user-defined areas enables many application possibilities (i.e. attachment, customized milling of residual material), even using the same milling part (available in hyperDENT® Classic).



Connector profile and sintering frame

Special requirements can be managed for each indication using the connector and sintering frame profile, which can be explicitly set for part types. Form and position can be edited individually. The algorithm for optimized nesting of the connector position guarantees a quick and easy workflow for the tool path calculation, even for overlapping milling areas.


Cavity milling

The milling of cavities and holes is often required. hyperDENT® is capable of milling these with all part types. Through categorization, different requirements can be managed easily, even for the same part.


Environment filter

Using automatic recognition of the blank required for milling, all known parameters (i.e. material, machine, part measurements) are considered for the selection. Only blanks that fit will be included in the dialogue, which simplifies the blank selection.



Engraving objects after production simplifies the subsequent identification and allocation of parts. The engraving can be placed individually for parts using the workflow bar symbol or automatically using parameters. Material-dependent profiles can also be created.


Angled screw channels

With hyperDENT®, milling angled screw channels is not a problem. It is just as easy as milling normal screw channels due to manual or automatic recognition. Optimized milling jobs using slot milling cutters ensure an easy milling process.


Auto nesting

During loading, hyperDENT® automatically places parts optimally in the blank. Additional local nesting assists in finding the ideal position within the radius during manual nesting.
