Autopilot simplifies the printing process by preparing models and generating supports automatically in just a few clicks.
Autopilot Applications and Modes
The Autopilot tool contains the following applications:
- Night Guards
Notice: The system shows the list of compatible printing materials for each Autopilot mode. Ensure that the selected printing material meets the requirements of the selected Autopilot mode.
The following modes are available under the Models application:
This application is designed for printing a specific type of dental models, called night guards, in a fast manner. It only has one mode, which is called Night Guards. The Night Guards mode performs multiple actions simultaneously, including orienting the model, adding supports to it, and placing the model with supports on the platform.
This application offers a single mode called Crowns and Bridges, which is specifically designed for the preparation and printing of delicate dental models such as crowns and bridges. The Crowns and Bridges mode performs several actions simultaneously, including orienting the model, adding supports, and placing the model with supports onto the platform.
