How to Make Non-Manifold Assemblies

7 min

In this tutorial video we will show how to make non-manifold assemblies, create good surface meshes, and convert them into volume meshes, as well as assigning material properties to different parts with Materialise Mimics and 3-matic. We use a vertebrae and intervertebral disc as an example for this exercise. 


For the purpose of this video Mimics 21 & 3-matic 13 were used.
