To Add Brackets To Blue Sky Plan

Digital bracket files are protected in BlueSkyPlan

The BlueSkyPlan software protects your digital bracket files.

  • The software does not enable the export of the digital bracket files from the software. 

  • The digital bracket files will only be used for the design of dental parts such as Indirect Bonding Tray. 

  • The digital bracket files will not be shared or transferred to a user or to a third party dental company. 

Description of brackets alignment:

The 0,0,0 reference point should be:

  • In a center of space through which the wire will lead and as a center of imaginary square.

  • Aligned from top view. It should be rotated correctly so the straight edges of the bracket are parallel.

Bracket should also be aligned from top view. It should be rotated correctly so the straight edges of the bracket are parallel.

A similar convention for the coordinate system as we have for the virtual teeth is used:

  • +Y axis points in buccal direction / -Y axis points in lingual direction

  • Left side brackets

    • +X axis points in mesial direction

    • -X axis points in distal direction

  • Right side brackets​

    • +X axis points in distal direction

    • -X axis points in mesial direction

  • Upper arch brackets:

    • -Z axis points to the occlusal edge

    • +Z axis gingival (apical)

  • Lower arch brackets:​

    • ​+Z axis points to the occlusal edge (coronal or incisal direction)

    • -Z axis gingival (apical)

The coordinate system is the same for all brackets when looking at the whole mouth:

Finally the model should be manifold.
