Remember that when receiving your unpolished printed parts, certain rules must be observed.
Never attempt to sit a framework down until it has passed through an electro-polishing cycle. This will enable perfect adaptation following the usual polishing process.
- Following the printing of your metal piece, the supports removal procedure may cause some clasps to bend in or out slightly. Do not force the piece on the master cast. Instead, use an orthodontic pliers to loosen the clasps.
- The guide planes should lead enable your piece to seat perfectly so allowing you to evaluate the integrity of the rests at their respective locations. A mechanical adjustment (grinding) of the guide planes will finally permit your piece to sit in its proper position.
- If this becomes a common problem, you may have to increase the calibration frequencies of your scanner. You can also adjust the global compensation parameter (“liner space”) setting.
- After completing the polishing steps, you will have to close the clasps back into their respective retention zones. The metallurgical qualities of the alloys we use will allow you to easily make these adjustments without fear of breaking the retentive clasps and reciprocal arms.
We believe that the quality of our design, our manufacturing technique, the quality of the alloys and the know-how of our technicians make 3DRPD stand out with respect to the completion.
