View Full Version : Geometric model of brain for import into FEM meshing packages

09-28-2001, 02:37 AM
Hi to all

I was wondering if anybody has built a geometric model of the brain
(maybe made up of NURBS surfaces) that could be available to other

I am looking for a NURBS-based surface or some other smooth surface. I
already have triangulated brain surfaces -- those are not good because
they are much harder to import into FEM meshing packages like abaqus/cae
or IDEAS. More importantly, the surface quality is far better using NURBS.

Thanks in advance for any answer.
