STEP 3 - SOFTWARE INSTALLATION & CONFIGURATION
You can then watch the video below LaserCAM Orthotics - EVA Software Installation.
STEP 4 - PREPARING A DIGITAL PRESCRIPTION
After installing the latest version of our software you can begin learning how to digitally prescribe and design orthoses. We recommend that you start by learning the basics of digital prescription by watching the video below - Preparing a Digital EVA Prescription.
STEP 5 - 3D SCAN ALIGNMENT
If you are wanting to send your digital prescription to a machining centre for manufacture then you will not need to proceed any further. Just click 'Submit Job to Laboratory' from PodView and your files will be sent over the cloud directly to your configured machining centre. Remember to get in touch with your nearest Machining Centre before clicking 'Submit Job to Laboratory'. By default submitted prescriptions will come to our head office in Adelaide, Australia.
If you are wanting to design your own orthotic models then your next step is learning how to align your 3D scans by watching the video below - Aligning 3D Scans in FotoView.
STEP 6 - DESIGNING ORTHOSIS MODELS
After your 3D scans have been aligned according to the clinical measurement or full-colour 3D scan information you may create an orthosis model and apply adjustments.
We recommend starting with basic model adjustments and learning how regional fences work. Watch the video below - Adjusting Regional Fences using Editor and get a feel for making interactive changes to the model using Editor.
When you are happy with your design click 'Make NC'. This will generate a numerical control (NC) file for machining. Once you have made an NC file for the left and right orthoses you can click 'Submit Job to Laboratory' from the client tab in Editor.
Your orthosis models will then be sent over the cloud to your configured Machining Centre.
WHERE TO GO FROM HERE?
There are many more online tutorials for those that want to learn more.
If you are a clinician wanting control over orthosis design we recommend you submit your models to your nearest Machining Centre. If there are no services in your region then perhaps consider becoming a Machining Partner!
By mastering 3D scanning and computer-aided design you will be well on your way to having complete control over orthosis manufacture, which will greatly benefit your patients. It's easy with a little practice and we even throw in $50AU worth of free LaserCAM Tokens to help you get started with no financial risk!
Remember, if you want to manufacture your own orthoses then contact us directly and we can recommend optimal hardware for your requirements.
