How to make non-manifold assemblies

In this tutorial video we will show how to make non-manifold assemblies, create good surface meshes, and convert them into volume meshes, as well as assigning material properties to different parts with Materialise Mimics and 3-matic. We use a vertebrae and intervertebral disc as an example for this exercise.
