Q: Are all the features the same--what's different?
A: 3Shape LMS is based on the core features of LabStar and includes the first complete integration with TRIOS and Dental System. In fact, it's the first complete CAD integration of any LMS. The client portal, message center, and LabStar Mobile will be replaced by 3Shape Communicate. The manufacturing portals, time clock, and some older reports will be discontinued. Feel free to reach out to the LabStar support team with questions about transitioning to new features.

Q: What new features are planned for the future?
