Correcting antagonist position by loading a new alignment scan

WarningThis page documents exocad's software releases from 2020 on. See documentation for older versions

In case the alignment between upper and lower arch isn't accurate, you can remedy the situation by loading a new alignment scan, and re-doing the matching (usually done in the scanning software) in exocad DentalCAD.

Use Tools->Add/Remove Mesh to add a new alignment mesh ("bite registration scan", sometimes also called "vestibular scan", as this is a scan of the vestibular side of the teeth):

As you click OK, the software will ask you which scan to use as a reference for the global positioning (this influences the orientation e.g. relative to the Virtual Articulator):

When you re-start the wizard, it'll guide you through the matching process:
