We're very excited to share the news - the Components module has been revamped in its latest update, and by adding two new sub-menus you can now start making your own implant crowns.
Due to the module's extended functionality, we felt a name change would be appropriate, so look out for the Implant Crowns & Components module.
The library features easy access to components by simply pressing on a thumbnail image. Some components have already been pre-assembled to save you time in sourcing the correct parts. You can even build and store your own libraries.
We already have some amazing implant companies on board, like Medentika, Elos, Trate Roott, IPD, Camlog and many more. Brand libraries can be downloaded from the module website, with new components being constantly added.
If you are new to Blenderfordental, you can find a list of supported implant companies in the product details page in the shop.
The module is ideal for whenever you need to append a component into the scene. It is especially useful when importing implants with the Guide Designer module. The WaxUp module also relies on importing tooth libraries.
The step-by-step tutorials will show you how to work with the Implant Crown module, so you'll be able to design your implant models for 3d printing in no time at all.
Offsets can be easily adjusted so the analog fits snugly into the dental model.
Learn how to attach the teeth onto a the connection geometry of the implant abutments. There are many Ti-bases and multi-unit abutments to choose from. These snap into the analog with the click of a button.
There are a few modules you will need to make your implant crowns. These are:
The Model Designer module (prerequisite module), which houses the source code for the menu inside Blender.
The ICP Alignment tool to align the component scan body to the intra-oral scan body.
The WaxUp module, so you can work with individual teeth before they can be connected to the abutment.
And lastly, the Block-Out module, which is used to adjust the contact points.
The Implant Crowns & Components module can be found in the Blenderfordental shop and is priced at $129. www.blenderfordental.com/shop (remember you'll still need those other modules)
If you have the Components module, you will need to update the module and import a new menu. There is also a 'Mask Tool' add-on which needs to be installed. If you need any help with this, please get in touch.
