    2th, Very good info here thank you very much. I will be working 8 GMI implants full digital, wish me luck.
    One more question please, In the end, I will be actually NOT PRINTING anything, not any model to send back to the Dr?
    How do I check the fit of all this case?
    and finally, I will copy with your permission, a transcript here one of your statements I totally agree on.
    Have a great weekend everybody.

    Awesome, thanks so much! Now if Straumann would make the repositionable analogs available...Backorder for a year?? Anybody have a stock of these? I could use other parts that are available, but that would void straumanns' warranty? Thanks again!

    Have you ever read the warranty from an implant company? The ONLY thing warrantied is the implant. That means in the case of a failed implant you as the lab, the restoring clinician and the patient get nothing. The surgeon gets a free replacement implant. That's quite a warranty! Most implant fail before integration. Find some solid evidence (peer reviewed) of failed implants using aftermarket parts to restore. If it were an issue there would be 100's of thousands of failed implants and one of the major news media would make it out to be an epidemic of biblical proportions and one of the causes of global warming and magnetic field shift.....

    NT Trading L series implant library in exocad has DIM analogs, Medentika has one and I believe @DESS-USA has exocad library with DIM analogs available.
    Never heard of an aftermarket analog causing an implant to fail, but maybe it's just bad juju put out by implant company witch doctors?

    It's been my experience if you wait for corporate AnyCompany® to make a decision or take action to help you with solutions, you will be waiting a long time.
    DIY. Move forward.

    In the mouth.

    Years ago we worked out everything from IOS with an impression of the patient as well and dialed in the settings.
    No models here for single implants or multiples in the same quadrant. Very little adjustments. Barring corrupt scan files you should be fine. Start with using the same contact settings for cases with models.
