The Open Technologies' Scanners come with a fixed set of basic accessories and some extra accessories that depend on the specific scanner model.
The Basic Kit comes with every scanner, inside a case, containing the model holder, the multi-die holder and the calibration kit.
The Model Holder is the main support on which it's possible to place jaws or other objects inside the scanner. If mounted on this support, the objects are guaranteed to be in the best possible position for the scanner acquisition.
- It's important to keep the model holder clean and black to reduce the possible interferences between the model holder and the object during the acquisition phase.
The Multi-Die support is used to acquire multiple stumps with a single acquisition. The position are later automatically identified by the software.
- It's important to keep the Multi-Die clean and black to reduce the possible interferences between the Multi-Die and the object during the acquisition phase.
The Calibration Kit is a planar surface with a pattern of circles, placed on a bended support.
Every calibration kit is measured and analized with high-precision machines.
The measurement is then saved on a xml file and every kit has it's own xml description file.
The kit is used to recalibrate the optical head of the scanner.
- It's really important to handle the kit with care and to avoid touching the planar surface. Every modification of the planar surface, like scratches or dirt, can make the calibration system unreliable.
Dynamic Articulation Module
In order to use the dynamic articulation module, some special supports are needed: a specific Axis Calibration Object and a special Mounting Plate for every supported articulator.
Up to the present, our dynamic articulation module supports 4 different mounting plates.
Axis Calibration Object
This is a specific object, which fits on every mounting plate, used to calibrate the movement system for the Dynamic Articulation Module.
- It's important to keep the object clean and handle it with care. Every modification of the object surface, like scratches or dirt, can make the calibration system unreliable.
