What will you learn during this training

  • Basics of optimizing your workflow in Mimics 22 and 3-matic 14
  • How to accurately segment the anatomy you are interested in from medical imaging data
  • Using segmented anatomy to design patient-specific devices
  • How to speed up your workflow using basic automation options


The Mimics Innovation Suite (MIS) is the versatile tool you need to construct a 3D model from medical image data, whether your end goal is to optimize your mesh for biomechanical analysis, simulate and plan surgeries, or design patient-specific devices. The Suite also allows you to automate your workflows, potentially saving a lot of time and achieving more consistency.  

If you want to get a head-start on segmenting medical images to create 3D models using the Mimics Innovation Suite, then this is the training for you.

"Researching scoliosis with the spine in an upright position is extremely challenging. The spine has many vertebrae and between each are very complex joints. Achieving very precise segmentation was only possible with the Mimics Innovation Suite, as the software was able to recognize the contours of the CT slices.”
