misrotation would be bad for trying to work from any IOS, as the printed model's implant index would be wrong.
yes, but again in context of only using this for an MUA/SRA abutment, even if the models implant index was wrong, it would still be rotationally wrong and therefor not affect the resulting geometry in terms of fit.

If we are working from an IOS or a desk top scanner, the rotation of the scan bodies is completely arbitrary in relation to the implant because there is no indexing that the scan body is engaging.

I totally get that I may be missing some factor, but I'm just not seeing what it is when the engaging interface has no indexing

it makes a difference when it comes to placing the analog in the DIM, different companies DIM analogs index differently. in my merged libraries I also incorporate all variations of analog across various systems - for me matching the index means i can reuse the library for normal abutments without making redundant data copies. in the context of just an SRA/MUA you are correct, theres no need to be precise in index matching unless you are building the case from 2 part system ( using normal analogs with Angled MUA parts instead of MUA Analogs ) this is a thing for some people as it saves from buying MUA analogs, just like saving buying new scan bodies..

Thanks again for the help @CoolHandLuke! I haven't run into many people who seem to have as much knowledge on these subjects, or at least is willing to talk about it. This is my first merged library and I'm happy that I am now getting CAM files, but I will defiantly have some things to consider before delving into library merging in the future, but it is definitely something I would like to be able to do.

I probably won't end up using this library again or pursuing it further unless I can get the orientation right just for what you were saying in terms of being able to use them for normal abutments as well.

Thanks, it is in the mill right now. I ran simulations before milling and it appears that everything should be fine, definitely looking forward to seeing how it fits.

I also can't help myself but mention that I am aware of some of the lack of symmetry in the anterior. We are basing the shape and proportions off of the denture that the patient was happy with.

I decided to mess with it a little more this morning and got the rotation corrected

ah good, now you can do custom abutments correctly.

cheers and i'll be here if you need more help.

Yep! Just couldn't do that much work figuring it all out and not end with something I can use more than once.

Thank you!

Hey Everyone seems like you guys know a lot about .DME Files I am looking for some assistance with a library we modified to change scan flags and now its showing us the analog is a few mm higher than the actual analog on the model wanted to know how we can correct this able to pay if someone can modify this for us so it can work properly

Hello how big is this library, how many connections?
