    Hi all, Please I'm trying to use an intraoral scanner for impressions at the lab whenever it is a rush case, but I have NOT been able to invert the mesh no matter what I do. So if anybody out there can help me with this situation it will be very much appreciated.
    I'm attaching an stl as sample, if you can get this one inverted, please let me know.
    Thank you all and have a great weekend.

    Love it when the Wizard stops by.

    Some IOS have a function that can be enabled to automatically invert impression scans.

    WOW !! I've been 3 days on this one without positive results.
    Thank you very much @mgexo
    I got the CS3600 for the lab and occasionally some ios scan, and it doesn't have the scan impression option. @2thm8kr

    Thx @mgexo I never knew that I could do it in Exocad...sure makes easier, lol! .....I have always used MeshLab... "File">import mesh, then go to "view" and turn off trackball, then go to "Filters" > Normals,Curvatures, and Orientaton > invert faces orientation, then hit "apply" Then "file" > export mesh as....
