How often should I calibrate the i500 scanner?

The calibration process is essential in producing precise 3D models. It is recommended to perform the calibration process periodically.

– Calibration is required when:

The quality of the 3D model is not reliable or accurate as compared to previous results.
Environmental conditions such as temperature have changed.
Calibration period has expired.
You can set the calibration period as detailed in Menu > Settings > Calibration Period(Days). The default calibration period is 14 days.

– Precautions

The calibration panel is a delicate component. Do not touch the panel directly. When the calibration process is not performing properly, check the panel. If the calibration panel is contaminated, please contact Protec Dental Laboratories.
