    For those that the laptop format is not convenient we found a very nice cart that places the laptop and screen where it is best seen during scanning, can be moved and repositioned for design, and still lets us transport the Nevo to our downstairs treatment rooms.  Works and looks great.

    A few quick questions to all of you if anyone is using 3shape software to send restorations to the Planmill40? Apparently it's been open since August 2015!   1) Does it work? :D   2) Which software is used to send the designed STL files to the Planmill?   3) Issues?   http://www.3shape.com/en/knowledge+center/news+and+press/press+releases/2015/3shape+now+open+to+planmeca+intraoral+scanner+and+milling+machine

    Thanks to all for sharing. I too have debated whether to get the Trio's and import into Planmill 40 to mill. We currently still have the non color scanning tips. I didnt spring for the first color option because I dont have any issues with seeing margins, etc with ice mode and didnt see any…

    When scanning 2 different posterior prepped teeth in same arch do you have to scan the full arch or can I scan by quadrant?  Do I have to scan anterior teeth so that it pins?

    Mike Kelliher made the last post
    I'd probably just set these up as 2 separate cases.  You don't need the anterior teeth for either. But if you wanted to make them in one case you'd need to scan the whole arch upper and lower to get alignment.  Way quicker to pre both, scan and design the first unit send to the…

    Ok, maybe a little deceiving title post... So, I've got my opposing and buccal scan done, do the prep. Get the scanner almost to the mouth and I get a notice that Windows 10 is configuring for an update! Sweet! 5 minutes later, it's done configuring... yay! - Oh, but wait... now it needs to…

    We've been on Windows 10 since about a month after the release.  So much better than Win8, but I can't wait for the Mac version.  Windows 10 has had a minor issue with a Romexis service that may need to be manually restarted after a reboot.   We've had the new update interruption too.  Inconvenient…

    E4D announced a new disinfection protocol for your scanner tips.  Please take note of the attached image.   [attachment=549:Final-Scanner_Tip_Cleaning_Instructions_MaxiCide_11518600C.jpg]   Click on the image - it will expand in a popup window.  Then, right click and you should see an option in your menu to print.

    First of welcome to the forum!   No changes I'm aware of.  The Maxcide plus that's in the directions is still showing as available on the HS website and I'm pretty sure that's what we're using, although most of our tips are the autoclavable version now.  The autoclavable ones are easier for the staff, less…

    First time I have come across this.   Crown preps #2,3,4 and for the opposing, she is missing #29,30.   Take the buccal bite and the image looks correct, but after manually aligning, it is way, way off. Not even close.   So after multiple attempts, I filled in the opposing space with some bite…

    Brad that sounds like a good way to resolve the issue.  If the software doesn't have good landmarks you can see the bite not align.  Sometimes getting enough soft tissue can help or extending the area you scan for the models can give the software enough.

    Really impressed with this update.   Scanning speed is pretty much "as fast as you can move the scanner".   Buccal bite seems to be working a bit better as well.  Really looking forward to trying out color tips!   Thanks to the folks that put work into this update.     Any hint as…

    Any word on what the new update will bring us? Also, pricing options on the color wand? Any pictures showing what it can do? Thanks.

    This is a pre op scan for a 3 unit bridge. Long teeth and slightly tilted. Try as I did, I am not sure that I really got the interproximal surfaces, and the occlusals look fuzzy.   Switched to the new small tip to try and fill it in, but no go.   Not a…

    Been a while. The above case dropped in nicely. Lab nailed it.   Worked on a lower bridge a few days ago, still tough to get those mesial surfaces. I am going to try slowing down the scan speed and concentrating more on those areas.   Anyone have the update yet?

    Newbie using an older Nevo and running Design Center not Romexis.  How do I save the files into .stl in order to upload to Glidewell or any other lab?  Where would the files be found?  We do not have a mill in the office.  Thanks for your help.

    You used to be able to export using the SKY network, not sure if that's still supported.  Here are the instructions (p220 of the PDF), you may need to get SOS to activate it for you.   https://e4d.com/edupdf/NEVO-User-Manual-11515600.pdf   And probably would be good to get to the laptop/Romexis version of things.  Limited updates for…

    Two new tips for the Planscan are being announced at ADA this week.  There's a small tip, great for getting into the contacts or tight areas.  And a landscape tip that allows you to bring the tip in perpendicular to the prep and just roll mesial and distal to get the contacts captured.  They should…

    It does require a software upgrade for the new tips, the software picks up om what tip you're using and makes some adjustments.  I'm sure you'll be good to go now.

    Got my NEVO about a month ago, and have been using it frequently.  I find that the stone models don't always give as clear margins as the cart did, and have had several conversations with SOS about this.  They have told me, as have other practitioners and sales rep, to ignore the stone model and…

    I have discovered that the stone is in, 90% of cases, the absolute most accurate way to recognize the margin. If you see inconsistency in stone VS. ICE, you might have darkness in the image (caught very accurately in ICE). For example if my margin is supragingival but there is just enough hemotosis on the…
