      Hi everyone, am looking to see if any knowledgeable techs out there have managed to incorporate this into model creator. I can't find anything to download and install from the web. If you've done it yourself I'd love to know how you did it. Thanks very much in advance.

      Measure the diameter of the connection point and the length.

      Am away from the lab now but the diameter is around 8.3mm from memory and the length around 35mm.

      Both really 2th. All my models are analogue at the moment and have been using orbit for about 18yrs. I really like them. Have been using exo for around 6mths but just find the choices a bit limited in model creator. As my clients gradually move into ios and I get models printed I'd like to continue using the orbit if poss

      Why not scan the orbix female end and add it to your model creator module/file or Mesh them using that fancy mesh program.

      Thought about that, as yet never used any mesh software. Whole new ball game for me. Willing to learn for sure.

      Depending on who you bought your support/exocad from, I'm sure they will help you incorporate it directly into the module creator for you...that way it makes it a thousand times easier than doing what your doing right now...lol I use Orbix too...just for stone models though.

      Reseller support??, just do it yourself. This will be directly in the attachment folder for Model Creator.

      Not sure you can, some resellers have their own version of exocad platform, i.e. cameo, collab, ident, etc..

      Most every version is open enough to add attachments to Model Creator or tooth libraries, etc.
