A Preview of the Fastest Way to Design a Large Temporary Prosthesis


One of the most challenging designs to do chairside is the design of a multi unit temporary that needs to be printed.  This is incredibly time consuming as you spent significant amount of time just marking margins on a dozen units.  With this technique pioneered by CAD-Ray you can bypass the margination step and design a large case in about a minute.
