3Shape E4 lab scanner

Ultimate productivity with our fastest scanner ever

Why an E4 lab scanner? *

For those seeking the speed and accuracy to drive lab productivity and growth, look no further. The E4 boasts double the speed, double the accuracy, and double as many cameras as its predecessor the E3, delivering improved efficiency and consistency with every scan. From small labs seeking the best-of-the-best, to high-volume, full-service labs striving for a leaner workflow, our E4 lab scanner is the right choice for you.


Double speed

Scanning a full arch takes just 11 seconds**, helping you produce more cases and increase revenue.

Double accuracy

Scan with an accuracy of 4 microns (ISO 12836). Combine this precision with increased speed and you can take on more implant cases.

Double cameras

Four 5 MP cameras save you time by scanning dies in the model instead of individually. You can even scan impressions instead of producing a gypsum model or combine impression and die at the same time.
