      Hey cadfan! Unfortunately, these are customer photos and I don't have access to the requested information and toolpaths for this case.

      Stop wasting material and tools! For machines that clamp a blank using a C-shaped fixture, hyperDENT has built-in technology that allows you to hang part boundaries over the edge. Toolpaths are only created within the blank, preventing the tool from completely leaving and re-entering the material at full depth. This results in reduced tool wear and milling time - in addition to being able to fit more parts per puck!

      The race is on!

      This Roland customer put hyperDENT and Delcam head-to-head. The result? hyperDENT yielded a full-contour crown with an increase in anatomical depth, it calculated the part 3X faster (0:47 vs. 2:50) and reduced the milling time by about 30% (17:50 vs. 23:05). Thanks to CADD Laboratories and Charlie Azar in Santa Clarita, CA for their help!

      Thanks for keeping the facebook unfriendly in mind! I don't have time for that place.

      We'd like to congratulate Josef Philipp from Follow-Me Technology Group in Munich, Germany for being awarded "Engineer of the Year". It's well deserved!

      Josef specializes in post processor development and he's played an important role in hyperDENT's global success. This year, F-M! North America was lucky enough to spend a week with Josef in Southern Califonia visiting customers, learning about PPs, and integrating new machine fixtures. However, we couldn't let him leave until he had the full California experience... a quick bite at In-N-Out Burger and a Harley ride up the coast! Thanks Josef, and congrats!

      No problem! :)

      It's the best of both worlds... printing and milling in ONE!

      We've combined resources with Concept Laser GmbH and DATRON AG (DATRON Dynamics, Inc.) to create a hybrid printing/milling process for bars, abutments, C&B, and other dental prosthesis!

      Our hyperDENT Hybrid module is used for the complete process: part set-up, STL slicing for SLM printing, and toolpath generation for milling.

      Hi Jordan how do you mill the screw seats ??? how many additional material have the re milled parts after sintering add material only there ??

      Good questions!

      The screw seats are milled using a T-cutter:

      tcutter.PNG tcutter1.PNG

      We have a toolpath designed specifically for the hybrid module and angled screw channels that utilize this tool. So we also have milling centers that are milling 1 piece titanium abutments with angled screw channels, too!

      For the stock allowance of the interface material after printing, it depends on the accuracy of the SLM equipment. However, we've been using 0.15 mm successfully. This is a parameter inside our templates that only accounts for extra material when outputting data for SLM production. For generating milling toolpaths, this extra allowance is ignored and we use the surface of the imported geometry as usual. For the end user, this is all happening automatically ;-)

      Just be careful that placing the parts outside of the blank doesn't exceed the mechanical limits of the machine axis.

      Datron makes them, and Dynamic Abutment Solutions also released a tool we're currently testing:
      http://www.dynamicabutment.com/products-2/intraoral-system/angulated-screw-channel-milling/

      Thanks for the warning, but we've never had an issue. Although the boundary extends beyond the blank (and most likely the machine limits), hyperDENT only creates toolpaths where the stock model exists. I assume this is why we've never had a problem.
