December 25, 2020 | Interviews
With over 37,000 installations in more than 150 countries, exocad is the world’s leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for dental CAD software. Every day, dental technicians, and increasingly also dentists, design high-quality CAD/CAM-manufactured restorations for their patients with exocad’s robust software solutions. More and more people around the world have access to aesthetic and affordable prosthetics. More than ten years ago, that was exactly the vision of the two young software developers Tillmann Steinbrecher and Maik Gerth. In 2006, they met during a joint research and development project at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD (Fraunhofer IGD) in Darmstadt. The topic was CAD/CAM in dental technology. This year, exocad celebrates its tenth anniversary. On this occasion, CEO Tillmann Steinbrecher and CTO Maik Gerth explain how they developed DentalCAD and founded exocad.
