Imetric installation

Imetric PC installation guide

Imetric 3D scanners will only work with Windows PC's using Windows 7 or Windows 10.  We strongly advice to use an i7 8th gen processor and the use of a Nvidia GTX graphics card 1050 or higher.

The Imetric installation consists of 3 steps:

  1. Installation of Controller driver.
  2. Installation of camera driver.
  3. Installation of IScan3D Dental software. 

Before you start, make sure the pc has Windows installed properly, you have enough free disk space and you have a working internet connection. Convenient general software to install is Notepad++ and 7-zip.

Preparation

First download the needed drivers from here, please carefully review the type of scanner and click on the following options to download the drivers:

Now download the IScan3D Dental V9 software.

File structure

Imetric prefers to have a standard file structure on the pc to simplify the installation and our support.

On the C-drive create the following folders:

  • I3D_Systems
  • I3D_Software

If you have a seperate Harddrive (section), for example D, or F you have to create the following folders here. If not, also add these to the C-drive:

  • I3D_Projects
  • IScan3D Scan Data

You will receive the system data for the scanner as a folder named as the serial number of your scanner.  Copy this folder (unzipped) direct under the I3D_Systems folder.
All Imetric software installers can be stored in the I3D_Software folder.
We advice to make subfolders in the I3D_Software directory:

  • Drivers
  • Imetric Software
  • Dental CAD Software

This way you can store the installers for the software in the relevant folder.
