TRIOS 3 (2024) is an updated version of our award-winning TRIOS 3 scanner that has been trusted by tens of thousands of dentists since 2015. Its excellent accuracy and precision have been proven by 250+ clinical studies.  

TRIOS 3 is easy, fast, and reliable. Since its initial launch, we have updated the design and pod. It is now available in Twilight Titanium color and is fully powered by PC due to USB-C connectivity. 

Together with our open platform, 3Shape Unite, you can tailor digital dentistry based on your needs and collaborate with one of our 25.000+ partners. With 3D scans in realistic colors and 3Shape Engagement Apps, TRIOS 3 gives you many ways to engage with your patients. 

With updated TRIOS 3 you will get the following benefits:

  • Award-winning TRIOS 3 technology
  • Excellent TRIOS accuracy and precision
  • Easy, fast and reliable scanning with AI
  • PMS integrations, efficient send-to-lab workflows and Invisalign connection

  • Industry standard USB-C
  • Fully PC-powered
  • Guiding LED light
  • 10% smaller and 30% lighter


The TRIOS 3 Pod is compatible with TRIOS 3 (2024) and TRIOS Core. Compared to the previous TRIOS 3 Pod model, it is smaller and lighter, which marks a significant improvement in terms of ergonomics. It does not need an external power supply as it draws power from the PC and/or Move+ and it also uses the industry standard USB-C type connection. Additionally, this newly introduced setup is supported by the vast majority of PCs and brings simplification and de-cluttering. 


LED light on TRIOS 3 Pod gives you guidance if your scanner has sufficient power and is ready to be used. Depending on the status you will see either a stable or blinking green or blue light.  

STEADY GREEN – ready for use

STEADY BLUE – insufficient power, try another USB-C port on your PC

BLINKING GREEN – waiting for connection to the PC 

BLINKING BLUE – error, remove USB-C cable from the PC and the Pod and reconnect it according to instructions
