From 3D Scan to Mesh in Minutes

Announcements Simpleware will hold a session showcasing a number of different case studies which demonstrate the potential of their software for a wide variety of applications in biomechanics at the 5th World Congress of Biomechanics (WCB2006) to be held at the Munich University of Applied Sciences, Munich, Germany, on July 29 August 4 2006. The examples will also illustrate the ability to complete such complex problems with a high degree of accuracy but in a fraction of the time taken by other approaches.

Image-based meshing is opening up exciting new possibilities for the application of computational mechanics methods (e.g. FEA and CFD) to problems in biomechanics and bio-fluid dynamics. Converting 3D datasets (such as from CT, MRI and Ultrasound) into high quality meshes is becoming the modus operandi for studying the response of complex biological structures.

Simpleware Ltd has developed innovative mesh generation software which converts any medical 3D scanner data directly into meshes used for Rapid Prototyping, Finite Element Analysis, and Computer Aided Design.

Important benefits over competing products are:

  • Simpleware software is specifically designed to cope with the most complex geometric and topological data, thus achieving more accurate results.
  • Simpleware is the only software that can mesh multiple structures and define contact surfaces between them. Surfaces are perfectly conforming without gaps or overlaps.
  • The user has the ability to assign material properties within a given structure based on signal strength, for example bone density based on Hounsfield number.
  • The user can import and interactively position CAD models within the image data, e.g. for inserting stents or implants to simulate post-operative performance.
  • Simpleware software has an intuitive user interface, which makes it easy to learn and operate.
  • Simpleware software is backed by full technical support from experienced engineers.
