Save Time and Increase Productivity with Simpleware Release N-2018.03

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest version of Simpleware software, which includes many exciting new features and performance improvements for 3D image data visualization, processing, and model generation for FEA, CFD, and CAD applications. The software is used by biomechanics researchers and analysts for tasks such as exploring patient-specific anatomies and evaluating medical devices through importing and positioning of CAD devices within the body.

Particular benefits for biomechanics users include:

  • Co-registration of two datasets– combine multiple image modalities like CT and MRI into one project file to make use of both for segmentation, for example when combining MRI and CT data of the knee
  • Wall thickness analysis tool– analyze the thickness of any segmented mask or surface object, such as thickness distribution of a cerebral cortex
  • Shape creation, fitting and analysis– new set of tools for the creation and fitting of shapes, incl. planes, cylinders (and many more), for example to fit spheres to the femoral heads to allow for calculation of distance between centers
  • Image reslicing visualization tool– reslice your image volume to enable easier identification of anatomical regions of interest, for example to reslice MRI data to follow an artery path using a centerline
  • Import and handling of volume meshes– import volume meshes from a range of common formats, with applications such as importing an existing FE mesh of a bone for reassignment of greyscale-based material properties
  • New 3D editing selection options– new lasso and polygonal frustrum selection options, for example to isolate the phalanges within a CT scan of a foot

Discover the new features by watching an On-Demand recording of our New Release Webinar.
