How to Design Embrasures
In the last lesson, I talked about how to create the right connector thickness. Today’s lesson is closely related to the last lesson. It is about how to create embrasures. After zirconia milling, we usually trim the result as contouring. The problem is why should we trim it? It is because the zirconia result is […]
Design Post & Core and Suprastructure at Once
Today’s lesson is about designing a post and core. The post and core, which was made with hands only in the past, is now able to be made with CAD/CAM. Many people are wondering how to make the zirconia post and core with CAD/CAM. I will demonstrate how to scan and design the post and core, […]
The custom abutment milled with 5-axis
As you all know, there are two types of abutments. Stock abutments which are designed and sold by implant manufacturers, and custom abutments which are made by dental technicians according to patients’ cases. Abutments can be divided into two types as like this. Roles and Advantages of Custom Abutment This lesson is about a custom […]
What is the 90 Degree milling
Due to mechanical limitations, milling machines fail to reproduce 100% of the design. The advent of the CAD/CAM era has brought many conveniences, but sometimes mechanical limitations stand in the way of our efforts. As an example, I designed a difficult case of anterior teeth in exocad. I created gum because of receding gums. I […]
How to use Interproximal Scan
Some people ask me that they hear about Interproximal Scan a lot, but what is the function, and others ask me that they know Interproximal Scan is good, but how does it work. Today, let’s take a look at what Interproximal Scan is and how it can be used. Example of when interproximal scanning is useful: […]
How to Mill the Crown& Abutment at Once
What is the one-step-milling? How do you manufacture a custom abutment and a crown? Do you design a crown and design an abutment along with the crown, then mill the abutment, and scan it again? If you’re working like this, you’ll find this content very interesting. What I’m going to introduce today is milling the […]
What is the Partial Matching?
Partial Matching Introduction Today, I will talk about ScanApp. As ScanApp has been updated, it has many convenient features. I am going to introduce one of the added features, “Partial Matching”. It is very difficult to match the data if a common part is very small. However, the partial matching feature makes it very convenient […]
How to Easily Create the Library in exocad
Last two lessons were about how to create and set up a library in exocad. Today is the last lesson about the library. It’s about how to create a library easily and simply. It isn’t setting teeth using Tooth Model Editor but modifying shapes of excoad’s library, saving it, and applying it as my own library.

How to Set up a Tooth Library in exocad
Last lesson was about how to create a library using Tooth Model Editor. Now, you need to set up the library in exocad. Today’s lesson is about how to set up a library in exocad.
