Computer Aided Design of the Body:
An Overview on Using Simpleware to Simulate and 3D Print Organs Date: Friday, October 16, 2015
Venue: City College of New York, Steinman Hall Room 401, 160 Convent Ave, New York, NY 10031 [Directions]

Who should attend:
This one-day course is aimed at those interested in creating high-quality 3D printed models of human anatomy from 3D image data. It will provide an overview to the processing of medical imaging data for the creation of tissue simulations and 3D printing. We will demonstrate typical workflows in Simpleware software for going from 3D image data to STL files suitable for 3D printing, including the ability to visualise and segment complex anatomical data. This will cover the benefits of using image-based models, examples of the work being done at CCNY, and will include opportunities for hands-on demos.You will learn how to:

You will learn how to:

1. Visualise and process image data from a wide range of 3D imaging modalities (e.g. MRI, CT, micro-CT)

2. Create and manipulate computer representations of different parts of the human anatomy

3. Import and position medical device designs within image data

4. Generate image and video files for presentations and demonstration

5. Export to 3D printing equipment

6. Export for the purpose of computer simulation using finite element methods
