FIRST MODEL WITH PRINTABLE ARTICULATOR

FIRST MODEL WITH PRINTABLE ARTICULATOR


A SMALL JOINT THAT HAS A BIG IMPACT

Up until now, 3D-printed jaw models were only available with a clip-fold articulator that allowed users to check the static occlusion. In contrast, the natural jaw movements could only be performed using a conventional articulator. The time and effort required for this can be saved with xSNAP. The 3D articulated system with spherical head is simply printed with the models of the upper and lower jaw to precisely simulate physiological mandibular movements (protrusion, mediotrusion and laterotrusion). The xSNAP system is available in the form of a data set for the exocad Model Creator and the Biss Dental Model Creator. Integration into other software solutions (e.g. the 3Shape Dental System’s Model Builder) is already underway.

A NEW TYPE OF MECHANISM

The developer of the xSNAP joint system is Manuel Fricke (Digital Lab Manager at xWERK, formerly Zfx Süd GmbH). The patent and utility model* application was filed in summer 2020.

A SIMPLE CLICK SYSTEM

The spherical head on the model of the upper jaw is simply clicked into the guide element on the model of the lower jaw using a groove. With that, the system is now ready for use.

NATURAL JAW MOVEMENTS

Protrusion and laterotrusion: The lower jaw’s physiological movements can be precisely performed with the xSNAP set to medium.

180° OPENING

Models with the xSNAP joint system can be opened by 180°. This makes them excellent as working models without having to separate the jaws.

xSNAP TDM: TRUE DYNAMIC MOVEMENTS

Can a plastic model with a 3D joint system replace the classic plaster model in the fully adjustable articulator? The revolutionary xSNAP System is well on the way to doing this. xSNAP TDM (true dynamic movement), the third generation of the 3D joint system with ball head which was originally introduced in March 2021, is being presented just in time for IDS 2021. A new feature of the current further development is the fact that it is equipped with two additional guideways, which make even more realistic simulation of laterotrusive and mediotrusive movements possible.

DESIGN & PRODUCTION

DESIGN & PRODUCTION


INTUITIVE COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN

exocad Model Creator has already proven its worth for designing models to be generated based on intraoral scanner data. Module users receive the design data sets for xSNAP in three different sizes as an add-on that can be easily integrated into the relevant software library. Once stored there, it is selected during the model design process and added with just a few clicks of the mouse. The process is similarly intuitive to the overall software design, so a minimal amount of additional time and effort is needed.

EFFIZIENTE FERTIGUNG

EFFICIENT PRODUCTION

There are no limits for users when it comes to producing models with the xSNAP 3D articulated system. In principle, any resin approved for the production of plastic models can also be used here. The xSNAP system was designed so the joint components on the models of the upper and lower jaws can be interlocked with light pressure, regardless of the material’s flexibility. There are also no restrictions concerning the choice of 3D printer – all that’s needed is a little more space on the build platform compared to non-articulated models. Only a small amount of additional material is required to make the xSNAP, so xSNAP models can be produced in a highly time- and cost-efficient manner.

xSNAP ADD-ON MODULE BY xDEPOT / xCAD

The xCAD / exocad Model Creator supports you in the production of physical models from intraoral or impression scans. Create both models with removable segments (using prefabricated bases) and monolithic models in which either only the prepared die part is removable or a separate test die is available. In combination with our implant module, the Model Creator enables you to create models with laboratory analogs and removable gingiva.

Put an end to the simple "klipp-klapp" process and get on with the dynamic protrusion and laterotrusios movements that can be attached to any digital model for 3D printing!
