C. Implant Template Groups

Implant templates in the group can be ordered according to several orthogonal dimensions, e.g., width and length. This is intended to facilitate scrolling through the implant template repository by offering references to the next bigger and smaller templates according to multiple criteria. Figure C. shows how the Variation Dimensions may be used for plates that differ in two dimensions: length and number of holes.


Number of holes

Length 1 [pic] ID1 [pic] ID2
2 [pic] ID3 [pic] ID4 [pic] ID5
3 [pic] ID6 [pic] ID7 [pic] ID8 [pic] ID9
