The course objective is to provide dental students with fundamental didactic and technical knowledge to begin preclinical skill development for full crown preparations. The course incorporates a variety of interactive features including images which allow students to examine the dimensions and contours of the burs in comparison to the dimensions and the shape of the crown preparation. QuickDraw 3D allows the direct manipulation of 3D graphical models by the users.

Effectiveness and Significance
This crown preparation course for predoctoral students uses state-of-the-art multimedia technologies. Students are able to directly manipulate three-dimensional models of various crown preparation stages.
Special Implementation Guidelines or Requirements
This can be used without any restrictions with any browser as long as the 3 plugins are installed as outlined on http://www.dental.pitt.edu/informatics/crownprep/index.php
3D Technology changes quickly and keeping the software up-to-date is complicated. I would have used different tools if I would redesign it.
