User sets target arch of the setup.
Arch is equal to line of occlusion.

  • Arch is adjusted by 2 control points to move and rotate.
  • Select type of the Arch.

4. IPR

: Choose a tooth and right click to select between IPR (Mesial) and IPR (Distal).

  • User may undo their IPR by right click and select Reset (Mesial) and Reset (Distal).

5. Auto Align

: Function that automatically aligns all teeth based on the occlusal plane and arch.

6. Auto Push

: Function that automatically push away neighboring tooth when moved.

7. Auto Contact

: Function that automatically prevents all overlaps with neighboring teeth.

8. Extration / Fix

: Function to extract or fix teeth.

  • Select a tooth and right click to open Extraction / Fix menu.
  • Undo extraction: Untick the Ext under the tooth. information table on the left.

9. Occ Check

: Displays contacted area of both Mx and Md with colormap.

10. Auto-View

: Click any tooth to change automatically the camera view to front view of the selected tooth.

11. Left Tool bar

  • Z-axis movement option: Adjust the way to move Z-axis.
    Perpendicular to the occlusal plane or in the root direction.
  • Rotation option: Adjust the rotational axis.
    Rotation based on tip or root.
  • Tooth information list: Displays length of each tooth, amount of IPR and extractions.

12. Undo / Redo

: Undo / Redo any movement and IPR.

  • Click Undo / Redo button on top left corner.

Tip 2: How to move / rotate teeth without rotating the screen

: Move rotation / mesial-distal / lingual – buccal in occlusal plane view and open Tooth Control menu to control Torque / Tip / Intrusion-Extrusion.

13. Layer

: Function to add Layers.

  • Layer : Milestone for movements to reach final Setup. User may create multiple layers.
  • General clear aligner production requires layers in order of Expansion > Alignment > Retraction. 


  • Add a new Layer.
