For this scanner, ensure you purchase the package that allows the exportation of STL files. If you don’t have this version, you will not be able to export STL files.
Once you have this ability, it’s very simple.
1. Just save the two .STL files (upper and lower scan) onto your desktop with the arches oriented in occlusion.
We only require the upper and lower arch scans because the positional data from the occlusal scan is embedded in the upper and lower files themselves. We know that some scanners generate three files, but since all the pertinent positional data is included in just the two, we don't need the third.
2. When you get to the step of submitting a case asking for PVS impression or scans, simply upload the files by clicking and dragging into the appropriate box indicated.
