manual OnDemand3D 2020 crack and license part 2

OnDemand3D™ Dental is designed for private dental clinics with CBCT equipment. The Dental package contains essential functions needed to view DICOM images aiding dentists with higher precision, better implant and treatment planning and most of all, accurate diagnosis. The following modules are included in the OnDemand3D™ Dental package.

DBM (Database Manager)
As its name suggests, the DBM module manages the user’s [Master Database]. Here, users can easily sort through patient DICOM data, project files, reports and attachments including image files or surface mesh data. Import/export data from a Remote PACS server, write CD/DVDs, and view STL data straight from this module. Data on PACS can now be opened directly without the need to import.

The Dental module includes useful tools for diagnosis, patient treatment and implant placement planning such as 3D zoom, panoramic, cross-sectional and MPR images, nerve marking, and TMJ study views. OnDemand3D™’s library of virtual implants includes large varieties from major manufacturers around the world.

The Report module keeps track of captured images and allows users to create quick reports in HTML format. The Report module supports the extended functions of capture, save, convert and print. Send captured images to PACS or print patient data on film all from this module.

X-Report has two main features: the X-Report tool included in most of the modules on OnDemand3D™ and X-Report Template Designer. The X-Report tool is a user-friendly method of patient reporting, where users will be able to simply drag and drop images from their screen onto a pop-up report template that can then be expanded for further editing. X-Report Template Designer, on the other hand, creates report templates for OnDemand3D™. It allows users to create a specialized report specific to a patient’s needs and increase the efficiency of writing a report.

Fusion (Optional)
Fusion is a visualization tool for superimposing two sets of DICOM data or for stitching two smaller FOV volumes to create a larger volume. Fusion uses the MI or Mutual Information method, a widely accepted technology for superimposition and stitching.

3D Ceph (Optional)
3D Ceph calculates the relative functions between points, lines, and planes in a 3-dimensional setting providing more precise and accurate values for analysis. The user can customize and define the points, lines, planes, and functions for analysis, orthodontic and aesthetic treatment planning. The user can also superimpose two sets of data, such as pre and post-op data for analysis, as well as use a 2D photo for a 3D volume mapping and generate a 2D X-ray for patient consultation.

X-Image (Optional)
Integrated database management is now possible on OnDemand3D™ with the introduction of the allnew X-image module. 2D X-ray images, panoramic images, photos, surface mesh, and DICOM data all integrated into one layout with direct acquisition capabilities. All basic measurement and filtering tools are provided.

Table of Contents


The Report module is for users who want to quickly create a simple report. The Report module supports the extended functions of capture, save, convert, and print reconstructed images from OnDemand3D™. In addition, it lets the user export the created report as an HTML formatted document for viewing on any computer. Images ‘captured’ from other modules with the tool can be accessed here.


View previously captured images by patient and date on the Report [View] layout

The user will be able to switch between modes using the tab buttons at the top of the screen, shown below.

The user’s history of captured images are saved and stored in the [History] section, through which the user can search by date, patient ID and patient name.

When a folder is selected in the [History] section, the user will be able to see a preview of the images contained in the [Quick View] section as shown. In the [Quick View] sections, users will be able to [Delete], [Save], [Store images as DICOM], and [Insert] selected images into the report. Simply dragging and dropping images into image slots on the report will work too. 


Use the [Report] tab for basic reporting using captured images.

OnDemand3D™ provides the following tools for reports.

The user can choose between the two layout options by clicking either or from the top toolbar.

The [Date] layout organizes patient data by either ascending or descending dates


The X-Image module has three additional tools in the general section, and four task tools available for use.

Import. Use the tool for additional patient data such as image (DCM, JPG, BMP, TIF) and surface mesh (STL, PLY, PCM) data.
When data is imported, there will be a small dialog asking the user to input patient information and data type, as shown below.

Input relevant information and press [OK] to finish import command

Acq Launch. After a path to the Launcher program has been set up using the [Acquisition Configuration] tool, simply click to launch the program for data acquisition.

OnDemand3D™ launches the program to jumpstart acquisition

Acquisiton Configuration

Configure OnDemand3D™ to directly acquire from imaging devices using the tool. There are two main protocols to choose from.

TWAIN. X-Image makes use of TWAIN, an “applications programming interface (API) and communications protocol that regulates communication between software and digital imaging devices” such as image scanning devices.

The configuration for this protocol is shown in the image below. Detected TWAIN protocol devices will be listed in the [Device Information] section, and the user will be able to allocate devices to the appropriate sections using the [Select Device] menu.

Input width and height calibration info for the device if needed.

Fill in information to set up

Launch. Another option is to use [Launch] to integrate OnDemand3D™ with a launcher. Choose the equipment manufacturer and set up the launch file path. Then set up image path designations.

Set up launch file path

When the launcher program processes images and saves them in a designated folder, OnDemand3™ acquires them using the paths set up by the user.

Image Options. View imported images on OnDemand3D™ and apply filters and rotate for convenient viewing.
