To Add Drill Kit Information To Blue Sky Plan
Blue Sky Plan supports several types of Guided Surgical Kits:
A pilot surgical kit, where a 2.0mm or 2.2mm drill is being used to create the initial osteotomy.
A 'Standard' Guided Surgical Drill Kit with sequential drill widths and a built-in drill stop in each drill.
A 'Direct Cut' Surgical Kit, where a single drill of the correct width is being used to create the osteotomy.
These drills may have a built-in drill stop, or the software can automatically create a drill stop on the surgical guide that would stop the drill and handpiece at the correct depth.
Drills being used for Guided Surgery should be 8 - 12mm longer than the implant length to allow for the additional height of the surgical guide.
Each drill (each drill part ID) can only have one length. This should be the length from the tip of the drill until the built-in drill stop (or until the handpiece, if there is no built-in drill stop).
If Laser marking are being used please contact our support team at
Sequence of drills
These columns should be defined for guided kits when the drills info is known. These columns must be repeated for each drill in sequence.
E.g.: kit uses up to 3 drills - then there must be defined all columns for drill 1, drill 2 and drill 3. If some implant requires only 2 drills, then the columns for drill 3 will be empty.
Description of drill length:
If the kit uses handles/keys, then these columns must be defined for each drill.
If the kit uses some kind of shaft that attaches to the drill that affects drill length, than its length must be defined in this next column
Metal cylinder is the part inserted into the printed surgical guide and it guides and cools the drill. It is sometimes called "guide sleeve" or "guide tube".
Description of metal cylinder dimensions:
Do not offer choices or options for a drill. List the single, shortest drill that can be used with the offset being between 8mm - 10mm
All master metal cylinders for surgical guides that will be listed in the software will be Blue Sky Bio manufactured metal cylinders to ensure that users can easily order master metal cylinders at a reasonable price. See the full list of available master metal cylinders. After the implant manufacturer supplies all details to Blue Sky Bio, Blue Sky Bio will update the 'offset' measurement in the settings as needed to reflect any differences in the master metal cylinder lip height.
