Terms Defined:

A-P = Anterior – Posterior Axis Coordinate   

M-L = Medial – Lateral Axis Coordinate

D-V = Dorsal-Ventral  Axis Coordinate

Bregma = The junction of the sagittal and coronal sutures at the top of the skull (www.freedictionary.com)

Home = Zero Point of reference

Saved Offset = Distance Value added to axis position when play button is pressed or when Routing mode is engaged.   

Routing Resolution = This is the distance the drill will travel each pass until it reaches the D-V offset. The routing resolution is 0.05mm each route.

 

Routing:

The routing feature is used to cut out a piece of the skull. The D-V routing distance is .05mm each step.  This means that if D-V routing offset is .10mm it will take 2 passes to complete the route.

Steps:

1: Move the drill to the start position of the routing

2: Press the Keypad button for the A-P.

               A: Press the Clear button

Calibrating Screen

The screen may become un-calibrated during shipping or over time. 

When to Calibrate the Screen:

-        If the buttons are not responding

-        If the screen does not respond to pressing buttons

-        If you have to press down with a lot of pressure

 

To Calibrate the Screen:

-        Turn off power

-        Press down on the screen with figure anywhere while power if off

-        With figure pressing down on screen turn on power

 

During bootup the screen detects the PRESS and goes into calibration mode. During Calibration the screen will display blinking dots one at a time. Press the MIDDLE of each dot as they appear.  Be careful to make sure you press the middle of each dot. The screen will go through Calibration 2 times and when complete the screen will return to the home screen.  If you find the calibration unsatisfactory you can always repeat calibration.
