    Hello everyone. I'm trying to put together a teeth library, but when loading it to exo, the teeth are not aligned properly. Some are quite straight, others rotated. Can be fixed manually, but the official libraries usually load nicely aligned set of teeth. Guess it may have something to do with the xml files in metadata folder. Tried using different ones but so far no success. Is there any way to fix it?
    The axes are set up correctly in the editor, so should be the contact points.

    Try to play with the approx. contacts on the teeth.

    Thanks for the tip. Tried to fiddle with the contacts once more and it's a bit better. Wish I could place the teeth next to each other in the editor when marking the points, though.

    Open two instances of model editor and put the adjacent tooth in one of them so you can determine where to mark the contact point.

    Thanks you.
    Here's the result. It kinda works. It's just upper anteriors, though.
    Tried to make a reduced version too, but for some reason the reduced mesh isn't in the same position as the original one. The change is small but I'm not sure what caused it. When I load the original stl files into exocad, they overlap perfectly.
