Hi Paul,

There is a module (MedCAD)in the Mimics software (Materialise) that allows you to save your model to an IGES format after segmenting (masking) in the images the needed regions. You can download the whole software and get a temporary license at this adress (http://www.materialise.com/mimics/medcad_ENG.html), you should give it a try. I have downloaded the software but have not try it yet (I will definitely try to build a femur from Dicom images in a near future). There is also an online tutorial that comes with the software. Hope it can help you.

Pablo,

Subject: [BIOMCH-L] IGES format

I have joined BIOMCH-L to find out more information about CAD applications
in dentistry.



J Morita manufactures the 3D-Accuitomo, which gives highly detailed
3-dimensional x-ray image slices of selected regions of the dental arch. The
machine is already being used successfully with several 3D dental software
programs such as Simplant (Materialise). I have a potential client who would
like to use this machine in designing and manufacturing dental prosthetics,
including implants and TMJ replacements, but he needs to import the
information in the IGES format to work with his CAD systems. Can anyone help
with information on how to reformat image files (i.e. Dicom, Bitmap, etc.)
into IGES type files that he can use?



Thank you.
