The ideal combination for your digital workflow
exocad and VOCO announced today details of a new cooperation which brings added benefits for customers.
exocad offers flexible, reliable and easy-to-use digital dentistry software applications. With the addition of the subtractive restorative materials Grandio blocs and Grandio disc as well as the V-Print 3D printing materials from VOCO GmbH, the partnership offers users an even broader material spectrum for digital production.
Grandio blocs / disc can now be found in DentalCAD and V-Print in the Model Creator module. The material-related design parameters simplify the production of the respective milling and printing materials and enable a reliable and efficient process chain in digital dentistry.
“The integration of the VOCO materials into our DentalCAD laboratory software and easy-to-use presets for the creation of models further expand our material databases and allow effortless use of products from all leading material manufacturers,” said Akira Schüttler, Systems Integration Engineer at exocad.
With the Grandio blocs nanoceramic hybrid CAD/CAM blocks and Grandio disc discs for inlays/onlays, veneers and single crowns, VOCO now makes it possible to utilize all the strengths and benefits of the very successful Grandio product family within the field of digital prosthetics.
The completely polymerized Grandio blocs and disc set new standards by offering vastly superior material strength. With a filler content of 86%, they are the most highly filled in their class. The biaxial flexural strength also achieves values which are normally only associated with glass ceramics, yet the Grandio blocs and Grandio disc are significantly more antagonist-friendly and can be milled more finely to achieve an even greater fit accuracy.
With Grandio blocs/Grandio disc, there is no need for the time-consuming firing process; they can be processed quickly and simply with any conventional milling/grinding equipment on the market and they can also be optimally polished.
V-Print splint and V-Print model from the 3D printing materials range are integrated into exocad’s Model Creator module.
V-Print splint is a class IIa medical device light-curing acrylic designed for the generative production of materials using a 385 nm LED DLP printer. The printing material is suitable for therapeutic splints and bleaching splints as well as auxiliary parts and functional parts for dental diagnostics.
The printing material V-Print model beige is a light-curing resin which is suitable for the additive production of precision components for all dental models. The material allows optimal visibility of preparation margins and prevents showing through when applying shades to restorations – particularly in the case of stumps. V-Print model beige impresses with its smooth and scratch-resistant surface and the material is suitable for DLP printers with a UV LED spectrum of 385 nm.

VOCO, which is headquartered in Cuxhaven, Germany, is known around the world as a specialist in the production of dental materials. The company applies the very latest scientific findings in its state-of-the-art laboratories and production rooms to develop and produce high-quality dental preparations which are trusted by dentists and dental laboratories in more than 100 countries. Export sales currently account for more than 80 per cent of the company’s turnover.
The product range comprises around 100 preparations from different product groups for preventive, restorative, prosthetic and digital dentistry. VOCO continually sets new benchmarks in the field of high-performance restorative materials and launched not only the first nano-hybrid composite on the market in 2003 with Grandio, but also the first purely ceramic-based restorative material with Admira Fusion in 2015. The Grandio blocs CAD/CAM blocks, the SolFlex 3D printer and the V-Print printing materials have also been included in the portfolio since 2017.
