Setting insertion axis
Checking/editing the insertion axis
The software will present you its auto-detected insertion axis, by adjusting the viewpoint so that you look onto the preparation(s) in the direction of insertion. Additionally, undercut areas will be marked with a color scale.
Setting a new insertion axis
To change the insertion axis, rotate the view so that you look onto the preparation(s) from your desired insertion direction. Then, click button  to set this as new insertion axis. The undercut visualisation will be updated.
Applying a common insertion axis for several constructions
In 5-axis or laser melting mode, the software allows different insertion directions for parts within a bridge. To enforce the same insertion axis for several parts, click on the respective tooth within the tooth selection control. For example, in the above screenshot – which prompts you for the insertion axis of tooth 16 – click on the tooth symbol 13 to ensure that teeth 16 and 13 share the same insertion axis. Click on 13 again to undo.
Check „unique insertion direction for bridges“  to enforce a common insertion axis for all parts of the currently edited bridge (default in 3-axis mode).
Click „Next“ in the wizard window when done, to proceed to the next step.
