3Shape won two 2023 Red Dot design awards for the functional and aesthetic design of the TRIOS 5 and F8 scanners.

3Shape, a global leader in 3D scanners and CAD/CAM software solutions, has received this year’s 2023 Red Dot Award for its 3Shape TRIOS 5 intraoral scanner and the 3Shape F8 lab scanner.

The latest awards highlight 3Shape’s reputation for innovation and design. Since its launch in 2000, the company has received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award 8 times.

“3Shape is very proud and honored to be considered by the Red Dot jury,” said Eskild Hansen, Chief Designer, 3Shape. “The award recognizes the meticulous craftsmanship and design innovation that go into making every 3Shape solution. Throughout our history, 3Shape has created solutions that help dental professionals better care for their patients while revolutionizing the way a dental solution could look and feel like.”

TRIOS 5 is designed for intraoral scanning simplicity with a Danish aesthetic design and intuitive ergonomics.

Since its launch in late 2022, TRIOS 5 has been named the “Best New Imaging Product” by the Cuspie Award 2023, the “High Technology Launch of the Year” by both Dentistry magazine and the Institute of Digital Dentistry as well as “Intraoral Scanner of the Year.”

The F8 lab scanner received this year’s Red Dot’s Best of the Best Award, the highest distinction in the competition awarded to pioneering designs.

More than 10,000 hours of work went into the design of the F8 to create a marriage of form and function, according to the company. Its asymmetry gives motion to the design, while its openness highlights the ergonomics and usability of the scanner.

From the smallest corner radius to the visual balance of its round motifs, the FB combines the clarity of its round shape and the precision of an aluminum finish to celebrate Scandinavian design heritage.

The F8 features dual-model scanning that enables the scanning of 2 objects at once. The F8 design is open with no roof or door, so it is fast to use and can scan bigger and taller objects like dental articulators. Its innovative design eases the workflow for technicians in fast-paced lab environments.
