How to analyze the undercut area in iScan?

  • Home >>

The iScan software has an Undercut Analysis feature which you can use to calculate the undercut region by setting the insertion direction or by using the Auto Direction function.

  1. Go to the Tools section and click the Undercut Analysis button.


  2. In the Command Option area, you will see the following selection tools.
    Brush: Selects all entities on a freehand-drawn path on the screen. The brush comes in 3 different sizes.
     Polyline: Selects all entities within a polyline shape drawn on the screen.
     Circle: Selects all entities within a circular area.
     Clear Selected Area: Clears areas selected by a drawn path. The brush comes in 3 different sizes.
     Clear All Areas: Clears all selected areas.


  3. Set the region of interest to calculate the undercut area using the selection tools.


  4. Once you’ve selected the area, click Auto Direction or Manual Direction. These are the two different methods to set the insertion direction.
     Auto Direction: The system automatically calculates the direction in which the undercut area is minimized, then displays the undercut area on the View screen.
     Manual Direction: The system calculates the undercut area based on the direction specified by the user, then displays the undercut area on the View screen.
