Surveying is a part of CPD, designing and it
helps to determine the path of insertion4
locating favorable and unfavorable undercuts and etc.
The primary cast surveyed is tripoded and the same
marks must be transferred to master cast. But there are
a few limitations while transferring conventional
tripoding, which are: -
Transferring the exact location of tripoded marks
on master cast is difficult
Bias can occur among technicians or prosthodontist
regarding the tilt.
In order to overcome the above-mentioned
limitations, we have devised an innovative approach
to simplify the transferring of tripoded marks.
The modifications include modified surveying
platform, clinometer app and mobile holder and
The method simplified the transferring of tripoding
marks and also elicits exact degree of tilt given,
which is imaginary in case of conventional
tripoding. The degree of tilt can be recorded
accurately and digitally.
