A semi adjustable articulator is no better than a simple hinge articulator if it is not programmed. The semiadjustable articulator gets upgraded to the status of a simulator through the programming. The relationship between the inter condylar axis and the maxillary cast, opening and closing arc, vertical dimension and the path on which jaw moves, are all simulated through the programming. This article describes the systematic process of programming the Hanau Wide Vue articulator.
