ArchForm's tooth movement software automatically creates an adjustable trim path of the aligner. In the settings, you can choose between a scalloped or straight edge, and everything in-between. In one click, the trim path is converted to machine code and uploaded to the cloud.
Loading thermoformed models into the machine takes less than a second due to our patent-pending model holder. The geometry to attach the model to the machine is printed into the back of the model. You do not need to thermoform the model using a special plate, or do any steps between thermoforming and milling.
An AI-enabled camera detects the models, reads a code on the model and tells the onboard computer which trim path to use.
The trim path is downloaded from ArchForm's cloud onto the onboard computer, and the trim path is run with the click of a button.
The ArchMill cuts out the aligner in less than a minute using an aligner optimized milling bit. The edge of the aligner stays consistent from aligner to aligner, and from patient to patient.
The resulting aligner has a smooth edge that does not require additional polishing in most cases. Since the path is followed so exactly, it feels smooth to the touch and in the mouth. Sometimes minimal polishing is required around the molars or on cutouts.
A fully automated retainer workflow is coming soon that automatically trims your scans, adds a base, and generates a trimline that can be cut out on the ArchMill. This is let you make retainers with almost zero software interaction and automated production.
Customized cutouts and hooks can be added in the ArchForm software and are automatically cut out as part of the ArchMill workflow — with no extra steps.
