Splint Design in 3Shape Appliance Designer

In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to design a splint/night guard in 3Shape Appliance Designer. Once the previous preparations have been completed in either Appliance Designer or Ortho Analyzer, we will show how to make a new appliance, then cover the workflow for articulating the arch, designing the shell, applying a bar, and exporting for printing.

Common pitfalls and struggles that newcomers often experience will be discussed, as well as some design tips to help make your designing process as efficient as possible!


Matthew Davis

Digital Support Specialist

Whip Mix

Matt is a Digital Support Specialist at Whip Mix. Before joining the digital part of the company, he worked at Excel Orthodontics Lab for 4 years helping to develop the lab’s digital workflow and growing its digital footprint. During his years there, he transformed several analog orthodontic, implant, and sleep apnea workflows into successful digital workflows for the lab. When he started, the lab was using a single 3D printer, but by the time he left, he had fully incorporated three, including printers from Stratasys, Envisiontec, and Carbon. His experience growing the printing part of the business, coupled with his proficiency, made him invaluable to the lab and gave him a wealth of personal digital knowledge. Before he left the business to become a Digital Support Specialist at Whip Mix, Matt trained four of the lab’s employees on 3D printers and 3Shape software.
