Has anyone used the.9 pin adapter to mill Vita enamic and other materials
I have some crystal ultra blocks similar to enamic, and have milling one crown using sum 3d.
But wound up milling into the metal holder on the block a bit , it's hard to figure out.

Thought I'd post photo cause don't think anyone uses this, no info on the internet.
If the material wasn't so expensive I'd like to use it alott. After milling just polish and done. No ten more hr in furnace.

Thanks for the reply, but that's easy part, although block and adapter need allot more torque down than Z disk.

My problem is creating stock software only has 98mm disk, as far as I know.
The show or hide hardware is where I found the adapter. But I can't remember how I got to a window that popped up where you can put numbers 1 -9 so mill knows we're block is placed.

Cap is my retail, the tech I talked to quite awhile ago didn't know anything About it.
Said they had no strategy's for it. Weird cause that was a selling point for the mill
Authorized by Vita to dry mill with adapter.
Like I said if it was more affordable I would be selling it to doctors, so nice to mill and be done. Right now I'm having to do three separate sinter programs cause three different zirconia, what a pain.

when you start a new project sum3d gives you the chance for "changing machines" one of them should be a same version of the 9pin holder in the dwx51d

Well I somehow got the window to come up and put #1 then put block in one.
And yes after that eyballed.
Not the best cause mill into metal lucky it aluminum.

I can bring the pin adapter up, but what your saying is maybe a new machine would give more stock options etc.
I'll be at work little later, maybe I'll wait till.i can be there to take a few more pics, and try recommendation. Thanks

nono, i am not suggesting you get a new machine.

in the "new project" button you should be given a choice of optins, first what name the project has, secondly the material, thirdly the machine you are using, there should be an option to change the machine, instead of Round disc, to 9 point blocks. this will change the whole workflow of the program.
