Master Thesis Project: Analysis and optimization of precision CAM

Do you want to collaborate on a real-world problem with a company that improves lives with next-generation technology? To learn more about the opportunity to collaborate with Software Development Team on your master thesis project, continue reading below.

Project Description

3Shape develops software for designing and manufacturing dental crowns. From 3D scans of the teeth, high precision dental restorations are designed using CAD suites and manufactured on state-of-the art CNC mills.

In this project, you must optimize the design of the restorations to take into account both the geometry of the teeth and the capabilities of the CAM machinery. This involves:

  • Clarification of relevant parameters and the proper dimensionless combinations hereof.
  • Outlining and setting in motion a full test plan based on the identified dependencies.
  • Analyzing the results and concluding the optimal design constraints.


A combination of strong theoretical and geometrical skills, as well as some practical/CAD experience, is an advantage.

What we offer

During the project duration, you would become a member of 3Shape Software Development Team. Being introduced to the project, you would be expected to work on your task independently, but you would be welcomed to at our HQ in Copenhagen. Thanks to the collaboration together with 3Shape you are ensured that you will receive internal supervision and mentoring from the best specialist in the area. The agile working environment in the company will allow you to easily combine your personal wishes with the academic requirements and our expectations. Our priority is to facilitate your professional and personal development. 

We value team-work, we help each other, and we have fun together. 

If this project sounds like it might be of interest, we urge you to apply via "send application" in the top right corner, including transcript of grades, CV, and cover letter. We are looking forward to receiving your application.
