Introduction to
3D Image Visualisation, Analysis and Model Generation for Biomedical Applications

Date / Time: Thursday, June 15, 2017 / 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Location: NUI Galway, Arts Millennium Building, Galway, Ireland    [Directions]
Fee: Free-to-attend. Pre-registration is required as places are limited    [Registration]

Who should attend

This workshop is aimed at those interested in visualising, measuring, and meshing 3D image data to generate models for 3D Printing, CAD, and FEA simulations. We will demonstrate the ease of obtaining high fidelity meshes from 3D image data using Simpleware, and will show how Simpleware and Abaqus can improve your 3D image-to-simulation workflows for biomedical applications.


13:30 - 13:40Registration & Refreshments
13:40 - 14:10Image to mesh: an introduction to image-based model generation with Simpleware
  • Discover what the Simpleware software suite can do for you!
  • Get an overview of the tools to visualise and process your image data from a wide range of imaging modalities (CT, MRI, microCT...)
  • Import and integrate CAD models within your image data
  • Learn how to turn images and parts into high quality multi-part surface or volume meshes and export them in a range of formats for 3D printing, or export to CAD or simulation packages
  • Discuss example workflows and the best filters and tools for your own application
14:10 - 14:40Beyond meshing: an overview of the capability of Simulia's Abaqus for biomedical applications
  • Discover the link between Simpleware and Simulia's Abaqus
  • Understand the power of simulation for biomedical application
  • See an overview of Simulia's capability
14:40 - 15:00Demo of the Simpleware Software Suite
  • Experience first-hand how quick and easy it is to import image data, segment parts required and generate a surface or volume mesh for a range of applications
  • See an overview of the Simpleware key features including segmentation tools and filters
15:00 - 16:30Hands-on Tutorial*
  • Try the full Simpleware software suite!
  • Setup and generate a surface or volume mesh ready for export, by following one of the built in software tutorials covering a range of applications
  • Bring your own data to get personalised help with your workflow
  • Start your trial and work with our Simpleware Support team to develop your workflow

* To participate in the hands-on session you will need to bring a 64-bit Windows laptop with the Simpleware software installed. To apply for a license, please enter your laptop host ID (MAC address) below. The installer and license will be sent to participants one week before the workshop.
