I'm considering purchasing a 3 shape scanner soon. I've been evaluating various workflows and was wondering how many different ways current users are putting the scans to work. Such as; anyone splitting the files for SLM copings or zirconia coping with milled or printed wax ups for press-to restorations? Milled gold crowns with Strategic Milling? Any good or bad experiences with CAP or CMC? I've been milling in house with in-lab and have decided not to pursue another milling machine at this time. So I'm looking to partner with others to provide the mills. Thanks. — tagged 4 members

The Versamill 5X200 a REAL machine utilizing the same construction and technology utilized in its "full frame" industrial contemporaries
The new 5X200 replaces its 5X100 predecessor and offers larger axis travels, six additional tools in the ATC and more in a heavier, upright form factor.

Is there anyone familiar with designing custom abutments with Sirona's inLab 4.2? We are having an issue we don't seem to have a solution to, and just wondered if we're missing a step or something. We follow the steps to the letter that I learned at one of the advanced courses. Also, with the TiBase and scan body, I make sure the little ridge on the tiBase/post faces toward the buccal, and align the scan body appropriately to it. We then continue to design the case as one normally would. The issue comes after milling when somehow the little groove made in the abutment to slide down on the...See more little ridge of the TiBase is in the wrong place and when seated results in an abutment and crown turned at least a quarter turn - even though it appears on the buccal on the screen when designing. We are baffled, and can't seem to find anyone who knows either. Any ideas? — tagged Abutments and inLab Software 4.2

I am using CAD /CAM facility at my office for more than 5 years now.
I have recently bought Yenadent DC40 metal milling machine for Implants.
Can any one help me understand which CAM and CAD system will provide me the most precise results.
I am already user of Dentmill and Dentcad. Yet I would like to change if there is better option available for Implant prosthesis milling.Change for example . . WorkNC/Hyperdent or any other. Like wise in CAD like Exo cad or any other, Some one having knowledge on this plz share with me.
Hello Everyone. I´m Hernan ILARI from Argentina and this is may first day in the Forum. I´d like to share a question with you to see if anyone can help me: Ceramill milling equipment allows to adjust magnification factor between 1 and 8. I would like to know what shrinkage factors these two extreme number correspond to, and if the correlation between the Ceramill's magnification factor scale and Zirconia shrinkage factor is linear. Thanks in advance!! — tagged Amann Girrbach North America, LP and Ceramill Motion 2 Milling Machine
We had Sirona in lab rap in our lab lest Wednesday. We loved what we heard but not sure if we would make right choice by just going w them or shopping other system. What we like the most is that we would be able to do all staps ourselves from reciving files (just from cerec-ussers since they are closed system according to the rep) scanning conventional impressions /models (but not be able to send files to other labs-outsourcing labs in case there is a need except Infinident) and milling which we now outsource to other lab but we would also have to think about sintering oven which is another investment...See more and as of now we have lots of need for bruxier crowns, Oh and I forgot to mention we are full service so our partial work we outsource as well. Help!!!!
Dan O' Rourke put out a challenge to our industry and the LMT editorial team and I are intrigued by his suggestion for a "Man vs. Machine" challenge and are discussing its possibilities. At present we're somewhat stuck on the logistics and would love to invite input from others in the community. Since there's a ready-made CAD/CAM group, we will post the idea for a challenge in that group. Please join us in inviting dialogue that would help us form a plan of action.
One thing that strikes us with regard to the "which is better" question, are the comments from Don Cornell, printed in our April...See more LAB DAY coverage:
Automation and the 25-30% market contraction caused by the recession are helping to fuel what Cornell calls a move toward "good enough" dentistry for posterior restorations which is, in turn, driving the growth of full contour restorations. "Full contour is not just about something that's cheap-it's good enough in this application, in this space, at this price point. It's shaped like a tooth, it blends in and margins are good. When it comes to full contour, there are those labs that don't want to participate. They say "that's not who I am," but can you really afford not to participate?"
This concept of "good enough" is one to be reckoned with IF the integrity of the patient's restoration and oral health are not comprised.
For everyone who offers suggestions, please keep in mind LMT's necessarily unbiased role as "information disseminators" which means we need to be sure, as non-technical facilitators, that we aren't condemning any restorative option. — tagged Dan O'Rourke, CDT and Milling

Hello! It seems the holes where the water shoots out onto the burs of our inLab MC XL milling unit are clogged and make the water shoot off in other directions or not at all. Any suggestions on how I can clean these out? Also, suggestions on cleaning out the chamber in general? Thanks :) — tagged inLab MC XL
