- The dental model (preparation, antagonist & die) were designed by 3Shape Model Builder and printed on EnvisionTEC’s 3Dent™ printer.
- The coping was designed in 3Shape Dental Designer software using the original input from the raw scan.
- The coping was then printed on EnvisionTEC’s Desktop Digital Dental Printer (DDDP) with the EC1000 material.
- The printed coping was placed on the removable die tooth 45 on the model (quadrant) which is printed on EnvisionTEC’s 3Dent™ printer to check for fit.
- Scan the dental model printed on EnvisionTEC’s 3Dent™ printer and analyze in 3Shape Convince software.
- Register the scan to the model STL file and confirm the model’s accuracy.
- Check the fit of the printed coping on the die model (here tooth 45) printed on the EnvisionTEC machine and the relative position to the neighbor teeth (here 44, 46) and the antagonist tooth (here 14).
