    Hey guys,

    This is a custom tray designed over a verification jig.

    I'm trying to get this custom tray design opened up in CAD with the ability to punch some holes in with a subtraction attachment function, but I can't seem to get this mesh in as a pontic waxup or any other type of mesh that will allow me to have attachment functions in freeform expert mode.

    I've tried filling out the DB like this and also with one tooth as an attachement, and also with and adjacent tooth in there as well...still can't get access to free form this or have access to attachements.

    Nevermind..I don't even have a "cylinder" attachment anyway, but anyway I see guys with the ZZ custom tray builder doing this, but i can't get it to work on standard dongle...

    any help?

    After the top and bottom of the tray are merged switch to expert mode.
    Right click and select free form restoration. At the top right of the free form window select ATT.
    Chose subtract, find the libraries for extrusion. Choose round bar and scale it as necessary. Once positioned, check the box 'allow any changes', select apply.

    Forget about that ZZ tray software, it's unstable, just use exocad.

    Do you have the bite splint module?
