Cerec AC(bluecam) and MCXL Upgrade!

We’ll I have so far spent a day with the Sirona CEREC AC unit and the MCXL milling unit. The system has been on the market for a few months already, the MCXL milling unit has been around for a few years now.
CEREC System
What I like about the AC(bluecam) unit:

  1. The camera is super fast acquiring images especially if your used to the old system. When in focus it takes a picture.  Crazy cool!
  2. Picture seems clearer on the screen especially with less powder
  3. It is blazing fast building the on-screen model
  4. It’s fast building the crown in Database
  5. Overall less powder is needed
  6. From powder to finishing the design is noticeably faster
  7. After 1 day the accuracy and fit appears better
  8. I’ll add more to the list as I discover them, and feel free to add yours in the comments below.

What I like about the MCXL milling unit.

  1. 10 minutes for an eMax crown to mill
  2. Crowns seem to be much smoother out of the machine
  3. Fit appears impressive
  4. I like how the light changes to green when the milling is done(I know not a major deal but I think it’s cool)

So far I haven’t found anything I don’t like other than the cost to upgrade, it’s amazing technology and very advanced, but the price is a jaw dropper even for the long time user.
