FAQ

ArchForm Treatment Planning Software

What is ArchForm Treatment Planning Software?

ArchForm gives you the ability to make aligners in-office with easy-to-use software and treatment planning services - now you can save tens of thousands per year, start cases right away, and completely control your clinical outcomes.

What are Archform’s treatment planning services?

We offer 2 services:

ArchForm’s Case-Planning software opens full control for clear aligner providers to easily create, design and 3D print aligners in a matter of minutes.

ArchForm also offers an Orthodontist-directed Full Treatment Plan for doctors wanting the ease of a ready-to-print case.

What do I need to start using ArchForm?

To print aligners in your office, you will need a 3D scanner and a 3D printer. Our ArchForm experts will help you find the one that fits your needs. 

Does my scanner work with ArchForm?

All .obj or .stl data from your scanning system is compatible with ArchForm. If you are unsure of how to get access to your data, you can always reach out to one of our experts.

How long does it take to plan a case in the ArchForm software?

It always depends on the severity of the case, but to give you an idea, our regular users set up small corrections in as little as 5 minutes from import of the original scans to starting the print on their 3D printer, whereas more complex cases can take 20-30 min. 

How is ArchForm different from Invisalign?

ArchForm gives control over cases back to the doctor. We offer free 1-on-1 training and round-the-clock support in setting up your cases. Instead of paying $1,700 per patient with Invisalign, ArchForm’s in-office treatment planning software costs $14-$50 per patient, depending on which monthly plan you choose. If you choose ArchForm’s optimized treatment plans, our clinical team of orthodontists have treated over 30,000 cases. This clinical reliability is unmatched with our competitors.

What printer do you recommend?

There are two printers that the majority of ArchForm users choose for their offices - the Formlabs Form 3 and the Sprintray Pro. 

For offices needing fast turnaround for high volume, we recommend the SprintRay Pro for its manufacturing speed of 20 models every two hours.

If an easy, plug-and-print setup is a priority for just printing a few models at a time, the Formlabs Form 3 is a great choice as well. 

Other printers, such as the Anycubic Photon S and the Phrozen Sonic XL printers, are more affordable with very high resolution models, but they are harder to work with and do not have as long of a lifespan before they have to be repaired or replaced.

How much does ArchForm cost?

ArchForm’s affordable pricing model only costs you what you use, nothing more. ArchForm’s in-office treatment planning software costs $14-$50 per patient, depending on which monthly plan you choose. The basic plan starts at $199/month for up to five patients. As an additional service, Full Treatment Plans start at $189 per case.
