Autopilot is the quickest and easiest way to prepare your models for printing. In just a couple of clicks, the system automatically prepares your model(s) for printing, places them on the platform, and generates the supports if needed.
Autopilot Applications and Modes
The Autopilot tool contains the following applications:
- Night Guards
Notice: The system shows the list of compatible printing materials for each Autopilot mode. You need to make sure that the currently selected printing material matches the requirements of the needed Autopilot mode.
The following modes are available under the Models application:
- Basic. This is a basic solution applicable for printing most models.
- Dental Models. This mode is particularly suitable for printing various types of dental models.
- A-Type Jaws. This mode is designed for automatically placing A-Type jaw models on the build platform and creating supports for them.
Night Guards Application
This application has only one mode called Night Guards dedicated to the fast printing of specific dental models called night guards.
This application has only one mode called Crowns and Bridges designed for preparing and printing such delicate dental models as crowns and bridges.

2. Press the icon. The dialog box opens.
3. Select the needed application from the Application drop-down list.
4. Press Apply.
→ The list of the available modes under the Models application appears.
5. Select the print mode that corresponds to your 3D model(s).
6. Press Apply.
→ The parts are automatically placed according to the selected mode algorithms.
→ The supports are either generated or deleted depending on the selected mode.
7. For some Autopilot modes, the Autopilot Confirmation window appears before sending the job file to the printer.
