    Whats the best way? Clean install, and then replace some xml files with the "old" parameters. What about all the patient cases, how do I get those to the new installation? What about dentalshare connections?
    Is there a pdf or something describing these things?

    Of course you will download and install a new version of the software. You can transfer old xml files, like the DentalDB defaultsettings.xml. However, you will want to use new workparams. Most resellers have created a new set to ship with the software, but if you have custom params, you will need to update those yourself. It is always recommended that you use new work params when there is a major update, however you can use old parameters if necessary.

    If you transfer the DentalDB defaultsettings.xml, you should have access to the same CAD-Data folder, unless your CAD-Data folder is in the old installation folder (this is exocad's default, but good resellers will have the CAD-data folder save directly to the C: drive, that way all future installations will point to the same location, client list remains the same, and you don't have to edit a .xml file).

    Dental Share only requires you to log in. No need to do anything else.

    Matera does not ship with preloaded implant libraries, so you will need to transfer your old implant libraries to the new build, or request updated libraries from exocad's website. Eventually you will want the updated libraries anyways, because exocad has a new feature that allows you to correct an implant interface after an abutments has been designed, but only with new implant libraries available on exocad's website (new libraries have a universal coordinate system, signed .V3).

    Hope that answers your questions. Also, hope your reseller takes care of all this for you so you can sit back and enjoy the new build.

    That was a great and usable answer. Thank you Kvonn3gut
    I'm going to install the software on my SSD and then redirect all CAD-data to an HDD. Clean install, but I need my CAD libraries :)

    Keep 2.2 working and icons

    Add new version, but leave old just in case

    On dentaldb config file!
    Change the database from property to SQLite file default.
    After you will always be able to upgrade all other computers and versions you have to same database.

    Thanks Juldan
    This sounds like a good structure. I made some changes in the filename structure of the cad libraries, I guess I will have to make the same changes in the new software?

    Usually just make it once and spread over all installation folders.
    But yes, you need to make it....
    I can give a help tomorrow over teamviewer if you would like to.

    Matera 2.3 - replacement of the working model and articulator???

    Matera now has the ability to replace scan data. In this regard, the question arose - is it possible to use pre-op as a form of a path in a virtual articulator?

    For example, the situation: total, temporary crowns were made for wax-up, the doctor corrected in the oral, scanned these temporary. We can first load this scan as a working model and record the trajectories in the articulator. Then replace the mesh with a true working model with prepared teeth. Will the movements recorded in the articulator remain?

    That's the idea. Some techs had requested this ability. It eas beta in Valetta with xml edit and possibly in 6136 if my memory still works.

    You say that the replacement of mesh can be implemented in Valletta? This is great news! Where to edit xml ??

    I think the edit info is in the academy forum. I am.away from my machine for a few days or I would copy and paste here.

    Also can be found in the changelog for Valetta if you have access.

    Experiment with it before committing on a large case. Certainly Matera version would be more refined

    Where do I find the feature to correct an implant interface after design?
