I can just hear the conversation of you trying to explain amongst other things as to why there may be an an articulation issue.
Sometimes if you dont laugh you cry

digital isn't accurate enough for his practice.

I’m running out of meds dealing with her.Banghead May get replaced soon. Also running out of pixie dust so I pour a removable stop on each end.

I don't work with metal, no more PFM. I prefer to make zircon cheaper, along with temporary PMMA.
For such a job I would do a temporary PMMA and it will either fit with a slight correction or a new whole impression.
Moreover, it adds the aspect that the doctor checked the work twice on acrylic and zirconium. Everything is already on him.

FYI Artimax trays work well for this. They have a distal stop pin that can be glued in while the tripple tray has not been separated and can be flamed for bite adjust.

I made so many 2-3-4-5 bridges on models like that the models could fill a car. 1/2 a lateral was the least I ever got, but that was also for a canine to 2nd molar so .... "what am I doing!" syndrome hits a lot.

Oh no, Car's posting more photo's again 🤯 :banghead: :)

It does works great for singles, but for bridges I get concerned with the friction fit of the pins in the plastic base, and if they're truly seated all the way perfectly every time, especially 4-5 unit bridge cases like this. I tend towards a dual pinned (Renfert etc) dies poured in a base where I can see and feel confident that the dies are totally seated, like ps2 did. Not disparaging you friend, but maybe it's just a personal preference thing on my part :)

I totaly get that.

I would pop the pins in, then out, then seat for pouring as they never seat as deep as teh first time again. Gets rid of a lot of the height question as long as you're good about keeping the model's bottom clean.

I had more issue with stuff fallinginto the bipin holes I had to poke back out with a paperclip or somethign than these.

But, we're all different and doing this the way that works for each of us.

A steamer works great for cleaning out the bipin holes, if you have one :)

I use Mainstay here everyday for singles. And still use a small solid model to check contacts. Don‘t and wouldn’t use on any multiple unit cases. Just my preference also.

Totally get that. At the time boss and I just even to each other couldn't justify the time/cost difference for what output differnece it would make given input limiters like 4 unit free end on quad tripple trays.

I wanted to put everything on a proper articulator to keep the error ranges and types all in one system. He did not like that at all.
