I have a case with a custom abutment, we normally print our own models. How can I print what the custom abutment would look like placed in the mouth? I basically want a solid.
Are you doing a lot of implant cases where you are placing the analogs in them?(any video tutorials out there for this?) Also, what type of scan markers are you suggesting for the Docs?If you have a desk top scanner you can scan the abutment and match it as an extra die scan to the original design file.
If not you can try it scanning it with an IOS and do the same thing of you get a good representation of the abutment.
Once they are matched up properly you can run the scan with the matched abutment through Model Creator to make a solid.
You will have to do some mesh editing and use the gray matter.
All single unit implant cases are done without models. When we started doing this years ago the models were the uncontrollable variable wrecking havoc on the work flow. We decided to go without models like single and multiple single unit crown cases. If I have a large case of implants it's traditional impressions for now and scan with DOF or Steiny.Are you doing a lot of implant cases where you are placing the analogs in them?(any video tutorials out there for this?)

I tried that for a while to verify my contacts ( 3 shape model builder)IOS then design, custom abutment/crown milled, then I would like the custom abutment to be represented in the solid model print like a normal tooth prep.
In exocad I just set the path of insertion according to the adjacent teeth. I realize this isn't possible with every case, but I do it with crowns as well.I tried that for a while to verify my contacts ( 3 shape model builder)
Problem doing it this way is that you only have the path of insertion of the crown to the abutment.
You want the path of insertion of the abutment and the crown which is why I went back to the analog hole instead.
