    A.2 How to Design a Plateless Model Without Holes


    Models without holes will consist of a model base including the stumps as one element (no stump holes) and the stumps as


    additional elements. In order to design a plateless model without holes, do the following:


    Step 1: Open the config.xml file of your model type (in the library/modelcreator/plates subdirectory of your


    DentalCAD installation folder).


    Step 2: Add the <SpecialCaseNoStumpHolesType1> entry if it does not already exist.



    <?xml version="1.0"?>


    <ModelBuilderLibraryEntry ...>


    ...


    <SpecialCaseNoStumpHolesType1>true</SpecialCaseNoStumpHolesType1>


    ...


    </ModelBuilderLibraryEntry>


    Step 3: Set the value to true.


    Step 4: Save the le. Your changes will be applied the next time you start the soware.


    And maybe you need to adjust some parameter here??

    Here is the official link for English instructions.

    You should start to look in section 2.6

    You need to design a base plate shape to make this happen.

    No thickness for the base plate. All triangles facing up. (the norms)

    examples of good and bad are given in the instructions.

    You can skip the jaw curve identification. Not needed for your stuff.

    Section 2.6.2 does not apply to you if you are not using removable dies.

    Josal,
    Here are some ortho bases for model creator. Maybe this is what you are looking for?
    Unzip the file in DentalCADApp/library/modelcreator/attachments

    You have to extract the folders to the folder.

    I got it, however the base doesn't allow me to rotate it to place it right with the model seems to be restricted to be vertical or perpendicular plane to he up-down directions in the exocad

    These are not official exocad ortho bases, but some things I have acquired trading with other users.
    I don't use ortho bases on my models so I have no sage advice to give.
    You will have to experiment with position of the bases and
    wall thickness of your models.

    hold on....
    May take a couple days.

    How tall do you need the base? 20mm?
    How tall do you want finished model (base + all teeth)

    You will need a couple of different bases
    Small, Med., Large?
    Both max and mandibular?

    Hello Jerome, thank you for your helps if you can send me the config file to chek it out would be great. :)

    Hello DMC, Thanks for your interest to help with this and yes the answer to your questions are:
    How tall do you need the base? not to much tall for save printing resin I think that 8mm in the anterior face is fine
    How tall do you want finished model (base + all teeth) something around 25-30mm tall

    You will need a couple of different bases
    Small, Med., Large? Yes
    Both max and mandibular? Yes sr.
    :D

    working on it.....

    I cannot believe this does not exist yet! :confused: :wacky:

    exocad will have this for sale (ortho module) soon.

    But, I think we can make this work.

    Hello do you have some news for make pararells bases? for the model? if I add the base as attachment how I can Make it perfect parallel and aligned lateral faces?
     
  16. jerome_de_guadeloupe

    jerome_de_guadeloupe Active Member

    you can add plane generic and match your base on it to be parallel

    you sent me a .off model Restricted but the orientations doesn't work, I change the model and make 3 different sizes but I dont know how to make the bases parallels between each other

    Other point is I can't paste a Text on the base

    no....when using model creator and plate-system, the models will be parallel base automatically after manufacturing.

    We have option to add XML and make different if necessary (Small angle on top? or no?)

    Without XML tag, the default is both models have same flat plane.

    Top of Maxillary will be flat to table.

    This is how we designed it!

    You should be able to add text to the base as well if using 6136+.
