Preparing Anatomical Models for Finite Element Analysis Using the Mimics Innovation Suite

18 min

This video demonstrates the preparation steps within Mimics Innovation Suite to allow for immediate simulation of anatomical models in ABAQUS. The steps include creating non-manifold assemblies, material assignment based on tissue density, and defining boundary condition surfaces within 3-matic, which can be used to apply forces when creating a load. 


For the purpose of this video, Materialise Mimics Innovation Suite 26 was used.
