Mr. Parlak:

If your objective is to measure the static and fatigue properties of your
metallic implants, I would suggest that you first look up the ASTM F1717-01
standard for testing of spinal constructs;
see www.astm.org then type in the above standard number. It will cost to
download. Use the UHMWP blocks as your vertebral bodies and then follow the
ASTM protocol for loading conditions.

to perform a fatigue test on spinal materials using the ANSYS Program
starting with comparison between Ti6Al4V ELI and 316L and it will goes on.
For this reason I have prepared models of some samples on the Unigraphics
Program. I need the STL data of the whole vertable or sacrum especially
L5-L4-L3-L2-L1 group, as I have no possibility to make a bone model.
