The new software version introduces a new background and a cleaner look.
The 6.1 software version is the first one that supports the brand new Planmeca Emerald™ S intraoral scanner.
This icon indicates that a Planmeca Emerald S is connected to the laptop.
DASH in the Scanner settings is available for the Planmeca Emerald S. With DASH, the scanning speed is increased due to a smaller field of view and less data collected. This is recommended for a full arch scan and other large scanning cases.
Full arch pattern
The Planmeca Emerald S DASH setting (under Scanner settings) is recommended for full arch scans. Select the setting and proceed to scanning.
1. Start on the distal surface of one side and scan the occlusal of the entire arch. On the anteriors, rotate back and forth from the lingual and facial.
2. Scan all of the buccal. 3. Scan all of the lingual.
4. Evaluate the model and rescan areas with low data, if necessary.
5. To aid automatic alignment, start the scans on the opposing molars and begin the buccal scan in the same quadrant.
Removal of unwanted data has been improved both during the scanning and processing. The Active Delete function is now significantly faster.
To remove any unwanted data you have scanned by accident (tongue, cheeck, blood etc.), turn the Active Delete on
and rescan the area.
When generating the model, the software will automatically remove the isolated islands of data (shown in dark blue).
Before the model is generated, areas with low data are higlighted in light blue.
This Show Edges function can be deactivated in the scanner settings.
The Shade Assistant feature only works with the Planmeca Emerald™ S and only with intraoral cases.
