There are two workflows for creating aligners: the Single Aligner Workflow and the Multiple Aligners Workflow.
Single Aligner Workflow
To create a single aligner, click the blue + button and click on the Single Aligner tab. Enter an aligner set code and the number of the aligner in the set. Choose an aligner set code that is unique to a patient's treatment such as JAU for John Allwine Upper. Upload the model into the software and position it on the virtual dental fixture. Finalize the model to begin processing the model in the cloud to add features that allow the 3D printed model to attach to the Pocket NC dental fixture. Once processing is complete you can download the model for 3D printing.
Multiple Aligners Workflow
To create multiple aligners at once (i.e. three successive aligners or even the entire set), a zip file containing the aligner models in STL format can be uploaded. Only a single model of the set must be positioned on the fixture and all other models will be positioned the same way. All models will be processed in the cloud at once and once complete can be downloaded in a single zip file.
