Hi, i have read around 230 pages of this thread or so. I have all of the components and supplies to make my own CIEMs. I have taken my impressions and Im not sure exactly how to trim them before making the molds to pour the acrylic in. If someone could explain exactly what I should trim off/keep or has a link to a thread that explains it well that would be great. Thank so much!

Hi, I am in dental school, so i have all of the necessary lab equipment to make and process these acrylic ear pieces. I have the tubing, dreve acrylic, and thermoplast to make the shells. I have some silicone to make the negative molds. In the dental lab I have a UV light curing matching that has a rotating table to cure the acrylic. I have a few drivers to try out: CI, TWFK, DTEC, GK and a few others. Ive gotten a few cables to figure out exactly what I want to use. Also i picked up some litz wire thats very small in a green/red colors. Also I have a huge array of dental burs and polishing kits to polish everything correctly. Only thing I am missing is some Caps and resistors if I am going to do any crossover stuff. But currently I am not sure how to go about trimming the impressions correctly. Does anyone have any pictures of their impressions after they have been trimmed correctly so that I can see what Im going for?
