During the Step-By-Step Wizard, it is possible to: acquire single objects or multiple objects in one scan, re-acquire a previously acquired object and integrate all these acquisitions.
Every time an element has to be acquired, a specific wizard screen will show:
- The name of the object to be acquired
- A brief description of what should be scanned
- A selector for the Object Colour
- A Scan Button to start the acquisition
- An Integrate Button to start the integration of a previously acquired object
- An Already Aligned check that shows if this object is already aligned to the rest of the project
It's very easy to follow the wizard:
- Read the object description
- Put the right object inside the scanner
- Click Scan
- If the acquisition is not satisfactory, click again the Scan button to start a new acquisition, or the Integrate button to add data
During the wizard the acquisition strategy is selcted automatically depending on the kind of element to acquire.
There are some specific cases, however, in which it might be necessary to change the scanning strategy to a non default one. For instance, if the user needs to scan abutments instead of stumps, it would be best to select the specific abutment strategy. Same goes if the user needs to design a veneer: it is not a default strategy for stumps but it can be selected during acquisition.
Copy From Reference
Sometimes, one element data has already been scanned during another acquisition.
In these cases, the software will show an additional button (Copy From Reference) that, instead of starting a new acquisition, will simply make a copy of the previous one.
After the Base Cut step, the software will automatically remove the duplicates from the acquisition.
When acquiring multiple dies or multiple implants, it's better not to carry out a single acquisition for every element.
It is possible to acquire many objects at once.
Just make sure that the objects are completely visible in all their parts and that they are at an adequate distance either on the model holder or on the Multi-Die support.
In these cases, the software will show a Multi-Acquisition Setup step where it is possible to select the objects to be scanned at the same time.
This step will show a list of all the objects that have to be scanned together with the already acquired items. Flag the boxes of the objects that have to be scanned together and, when scanning stumps, flag the Use Multi-Die support option on the bottom of the dialog to use the Multi-Die holder.
If the Multi-Die option is selected, the software will set up a specific acquisition for the dies; an image will guide the user in positioning the dies in the Multi-Die holder.
After the acquisition, the software will automatically recognize each single die and return to the Multi-Acquisition Step to allow the acquisition of additional objects.
If the Multi-Die is not selected, the software will acquire the objects and, in the following step, require the user to manually identify each object.
A specific Wizard Step will ask which object has to be identified. The user has to:
- Read from the Wizard Page which object has to be selected
- Select the specific object, using a Selection Tool
- Click the button Segment
- Click the button Next
When the objects are all identified, the software returns to the Multi-Acquisition step. If all the objects have already been aquired, click Next to continue with the Step-By-Step Wizard
By clicking the Integrate button after an acquisition, the Integration mode will be launched.
