Coming Soon: Mimics Innovation Suite 18.0
Materialise is proud to announce the upcoming release of the Mimics Innovation Suite for Engineering on Anatomy! This release celebrates Materialise's 25th anniversary! We're looking forward to engineering the future with you.
For the development of Mimics 18.0 and 3-matic 10.0 we focused heavily on user-friendliness to further improve your workflows. We’ve also included new tools to significantly speed up the segmentation process and expand your visualization capabilities.
Achieve a More Realistic Mesh without Compromising on Geometrical Accuracy
A geometrically accurate mesh with high quality elements is the critical basis of any reliable FEA simulation. When geometrical complexity increases, so does the challenge of obtaining this quality. Materialise is looking for researchers and engineers who are not afraid of a challenge and are interested to see how our latest meshing tools handle their most complex cases. Do you want to access our latest FEA meshing capabilities even before they are commercially available? Join the FEA Challenge!
Increasing Confidence for Tessier Facial Cleft Repair with a 3D-Printed Model
Dr. John Meara, M.D., D.M.D, at Boston Children’s Hospital, already helped five patients with Tessier facial clefts, a rare congenital, craniofacial anomaly. Recently, he was able to help a patient with a large fissure in her facial bone, which pushed her eyes far apart. To get a better understanding of her complex bone structure, the team uploaded her CT data into the Mimics Innovation Suite to make 3D virtual models of her skull that they could then print out.
Two-Year-Old with Complex VSD Patched Up with Help of 3D Printing Technology
Two-year old British Mina Khan was born with a complex hole between her ventricles (VSD). This life-threatening congenital defect exhausted her, as pumping blood around the hole took up all her energy, leaving her breathless, unable to eat or put on weight — even her hair wouldn’t grow. Doctors feared the hole was too big to repair, especially in the tiny, delicate heart of a toddler. Even for experienced pediatric surgeons, this would be a very risky operation.
