Mimics Innovation Course

From Segmentation in Materialise Mimics to Musculoskeletal Modeling in the Anybody Modeling System

May 23-24, 2019    |    Aalborg, Denmark
University of Aalborg, Fibigerstraede 16, Room 1-101. 9220 Aalborg East, Denmark

Whether your interest in personalized musculoskeletal models is for medical device design, research, or pre-surgical planning, we have an educational opportunity for you. Together with Aalborg University, you can get hands-on training of practical tools and workflows to be successful in this field, by using Materialise’s Mimics Innovation Suite and AnyBody's Modeling System.

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 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.


In this training, you will learn:

  • How to go from medical imaging data all the way to personalized musculoskeletal models

  • How to efficiently segment structures that are important in musculoskeletal models, such as bones and muscles

  • Remeshing for finite element modeling

  • Scripting: automate your 3D workflows





Program: Mimics Innovation Course - co-organized with Aalborg University

The training is designed to be suitable for all levels of experience with the Mimics Innovation Suite, even if you are a beginner.
