    Aim: The aim of the present study was to assess and compare the reliability and accuracy of two different software’s used for measuring arch dimensions and doing model analysis. Objective: The objective of the present study was to assess the reliability and accuracy of 2 digital softwares for orthodontic model analysis and compare it to manual method. Background: With emerging technology in the field of dentistry, 3D virtual models are been widely used for diagnostic and research purposes. Materials and Methods: The study involved pre-treatment study models of 20 patients evaluated by 3 methods namely, Group 1- manual, Group 2 - ExoCad and Group 3 - Ortho Analyser software. Measurements of the following parameters, inter premolar width (IPW), intermolar width (IMW), arch length (AL) and Bolton’s ratio (BR) were performed and the data obtained was tabulated and subjected to..
