Hello all, I am absolutely new to this product but I see that it is very powerful and capable. I’m excited to start using it.

My project is to “stitch” STL files of teeth to a CBCT scan of the entire head (using some sort of best fit superimposition) and then superimpose the same CBCT without the stitched teeth, and measure differences of tooth positioning. Knowing that I have no idea to navigate the program (but I am technologically savvy), is there a way for me to do that in this software? Thank you.

Generally, yes, probably all the operations you need could be implemented in Slicer. Some of it probably requires custom programming. Probably best for you to work through the tutorials and see what people have been able to accomplish. That will give you a better idea how to go about it.
