About the event

The Mimics Innovation Suite (MIS) allows you to automate your workflows, potentially saving a lot of time, achieving more consistency, and reducing repetitive work and human error.

That is an easy thing to say, but if you do not have much experience with scripting, we all know that it can be tough to get started.

If you want to speed up your learning curve and get a head start, then this could be an interesting training for you.


Topics will include:

  • Basics of Optimizing your Workflow in Mimics 21 and 3-matic 13

  • How to write your first scripts

  • Introduction to Python

  • Hands-on training exercises for creating planning workflows (e.g. loading datasets, performing basic segmentation steps, landmarking, creating anatomical coordinate systems, designing custom implants)


The training is built up in such a way that it is suitable for all levels of experience, including beginners.

It’s fully up to you if you prefer attending both days or only one of them.

If you have more experience, we recommend attending day 2, and optionally day 1 if you would like to get a refresher or some new tips and tricks about the basics and the new functionality in Mimics 21 and 3-matic 13.

What previous participants had to say

Banu Heart

“This training was very informative and well-presented with all the soft tissue samples, textbook and datasets. I used Materialise 3-matic for the first time and got more confidence about many things such as design and meshing. We could also discuss our own projects and could ask about the possible options of the Mimics Innovation Suite. Learning about the new possibilities to automate the workflow in scripting, and ADaM (Materialise Anatomical Data Mining) for shape optimization was also encouraging.”
