Are any of you guys printing or laser sintering partial frameworks atm?
I have designed a few and sent them out for laser sintering.
The feed back I got was that they fit better than any traditional
cast partial framework. I am not into removable work right now, but
if I go in that direction I will definitely be using the exo partial module
to offer sintered frames to my clients.
We have a large partial framework department, which currently produce using traditional methods. One of our future goals is to incorporate a digital work flow in that department.
We've had a few frameworks sintered but with varying results of accuracy.
Just downloaded the 2018 trail version of partial dentures, will let you know what its like.
Can I watch you design some partials?
ive been considering milling some non-metal RPD frames for other labs. anyone dive into those materials/frames yet?
i wouldnt be doing the designing, just strictly milling. all set up for milling, just need the material. 2 labs i know are considering trying them out but have yet to take the plunge
Haven't looked into them yet, but I'm sure the next 6 months here I shall see a lot of testing and will update of progress made.
Traditional technique in USA is really cheap.
$50-$75 for a finished, polished frame.
I do not see how Digital can compete with this and save money or time or results.
But, I am happy to sell the Partial Denture software to those to want to do it!
It works, but nothing gained in my opinion.
I guess for exotic materials that can only be CNC machined?
But do we really need those exotic materials is the question I ask.
The problem is as we all get older, the skills sets are disappearing along with a good work ethic and its getting harder to find able employees.
ive seen $50-$75 RPD frames.......they dont fly for my clients. just nowhere near the quality needed. best ive found is about $82 for economy frame and $98 for higher quality frames. metal ones that is.... not to mention time. it takes 4 days of shipping back and forth from the nearest RPD frame lab, plus the 6-8days they require for fabrication. and that doesnt give me any time for pouring models if needed, or setting teeth or a bite rim over it. digital CAN and WILL compete with this. it already is.
but my plan is to mill the Trinia style fiberglass-resin materials for RPD frames. just need the right software, strategies, and material to make it happen. oh yes, and to find a lab interested in sending those designs over lol
where cam i find link for download trial partial ?
cant find it
Simply unpack the archive to the DentalCAD 2.2 Valletta installation folder and a new "Design Partial" icon will automatically appear in DentalDB. Switch to the "Partial" material configuration (also included with the Valletta release) to include Partial Frameworks in the list of indications. Partial Frameworks can be combined with crown and bridge designs, or other indications available in the exocad DentalCAD platform - e.g. for secondary structures on telescopic crowns, attachments, advanced implant cases, and more.
