Q: Is CAD/CAM software included?
A:  Not all regions include software, see an individual DGSHAPE reseller for details.

Q:  Why do we need a dust collector?
A:  It is to prevent the discharge of the processing waste. Inhalation of processed dust may cause irritation to the respiratory tract. Zirconia dust is very dangerous if inhaled. It also has a role to prevent machining debris from getting inside the main cavity of the machine where the electronics are located. 

Q:  What kind of dust collector / compressor should I use?
Dust Collector
  • Static pressure 4 KPa or more
  • Airflow rate 2 m 3 / min or more


  • Air pressure 0.2 to 1.0 Mpa
  • Air volume 30 L / min or more
  • Due to the inclusion of foreign matter into the compressed air, please use oil-free type.
  • Moist air will cause rust. Please use one with a dryer.
  • Since stable pressure is required, please choose one with sufficient tank capacity.
  • Hose outer diameter: 6 mm (polyurethane resin tube) please be prepared.
Q:  How many teeth can I make with one zirconia disc?
A:  It is roughly 20-40 teeth. However it depends on shape and CAM function to be used.
