to Add Abutments to Blue Sky Plan

Blue Sky Plan can be used to design and fabricate CROWNS and other restorative parts

Adding your abutments to the Blue Sky Plan user will streamline the process flow for your users to design crowns and other restorative parts.


By adding the parts to Blue Sky Plan, your users will be able to purchase the parts used in the digital plan, from your company, quickly and easily.

See a list of dental implant companies already integrated into BlueSkyPlan.

In order to add your abutments to the Blue Sky Plan software please send:

1) STL files of your abutments

Abutments should be oriented exactly according to the below images. 

Sample, correctly oriented STL files (one implant, one abutment) can be downloaded here. 

Angled abutments - The angled part of the abutment should be oriented to the -Y axis

Titanium Base Abutments or Scan Bodies - The flat part or lobe should be oriented to the -Y axis.

The following figures illustrates properly oriented abutments (as shown via


2) A completed excel document with the relevant information. 

    The excel file can be downloaded here.

Instructions can be found in the excel file and in the video below


3) Shopping Cart Configuration

BlueSkyPlan allows the user to add the parts used in the treatment plan to their shopping cart and complete the purchase directly from your company. 

This new functionality can be integrated via your online shopping cart (if you have an online store) or via an online private interface that your company can fully update and control.

Confidential Information

  • DO NOT send any confidential information or any information that would require the signing of an NDA. All information that is sent, will be shared in the Blue Sky Plan software with all users. No confidential information is being requested and no confidential information should be sent. 

  • The outer dimensions of the digital implant files and their proper orientation and positioning is what is important. Internal connections can be removed, and the resolution/quality of the overall STL file can be reduced. 

  • Blue Sky Bio is a dental implant company actively working on the development of new parts, including implants, abutments, and a variety of other dental products. As such, all proprietary information should be removed (from the STL files, and implant information files) from the files being sent to BlueSkyBio, and no confidential information should in any way, be shared with Blue Sky Bio. All information sent to Blue Sky Bio, will be shared with the public at large, via the Blue Sky Plan software. 



  • PartIDs must be unique, and there should be one part per row. Do not repeat implants/abutments or their part IDs on multiple lines. 

  • All measurements should be in millimeters but do not enter "mm" after the values.

  • Please double-check all data and values entered as it will affect treatment planning and surgical guide fabrication.


  • Once the implant manufacturer supplies all the relevant information to Blue Sky Bio, Blue Sky Bio will make a strong effort to include the parts in the next software public release. This may take a few weeks or a few months depending on Blue Sky Bio's software release schedule. 

  • There is no fee to integrate your parts into the BlueSkyPlan software. Once your parts are added to the catalog you are expected to send email notifications, and post to your social channels, notifying your users they can now treatment plan in the BlueSkyPlan software using your parts.
