Design devices starting from the patient's anatomy
When creating a patient-specific device, using the patients anatomical shape as the starting point for your design, often leads to the best device fit.
Given the complexity and variability of anatomical shapes, creating an efficient design workflow, while maintaining sufficient detail and ensuring the file can be manufactured is challenging.
Unlike traditional CAD packages, Materialise 3-matic allows you to work directly on the triangulated surfaces, so you retain the all-important details and complexity from start to finish.
This makes it the go to software for designing patient specific implants, surgical instrumentation, anatomical models and benchtop models
Print a 3D model directly using the STL files (no need to convert from CAD)
Reverse engineer and continue in a CAD package
Smoothly export to a wide range of the most popular FEA solvers
Use Materialise 3-matic to
- Convert your 3D models into Finite Element meshes and export to the most common FEA solvers.
- Design patient specific devices on complex anatomical shapes
- Prepare files for 3D printing, or reverse engineer and continue in a CAD
