HeathPark, Cardiff
CF14 4XY, Wales
(Please note this workshop is free of charge)

Sponsored by Meditech

Simpleware and the University of Cardiff are organising a half-day workshop on Image-based Simulation for Biomechanics,Materials Applications, and Reverse Engineering. The workshop is aimed at those interested in 3D reconstruction from radiology images, and in using 3D image data (as obtained from ct, Microct,mri and Ultrasound) to generate Rapid Prototyping, cad,and Finite Element models.

This workshop is free but pre-registration is required as places are restricted to 25 people. Please register at:

or www.simpleware.com or www.meditech.cf.ac.uk

Programme Outline:
13:30 – 14:00 Registration & Coffee
14:00 – 14:30 Dr. Rebecca Bryan, Simpleware Ltd.:Meshing from 3D image data: from materials characterisation to medical implant simulation
14:30 – 15:15 Demonstration of ScanIP, +ScanFE and +ScanCAD:New features from recent release
15:15 – 15:30 Coffee Break
15:30 – 17:00 Hands-on Tutorial: Participants can follow different software tutorials, and also install a trial of our software on their laptop for working on their own image data after the workshop.

Participants are welcome to attend the whole workshop or any of the individual sessions.

3D USERS GROUP SEMINAR on Orthodontics and Related Disciplines(Hosted by Cardiff School of Dentistry)

12th November 2010, Cardiff Medicentre, Heath Park, Cardiff CF14 4UJ

See full details on

The purpose of this one day meeting is bring together the many researchers, clinicians and organisations
working in 3D imaging applied to orthodontics and related disciplines.

It is considered timely that such a meeting is organised to allow interested groups to share, exchange knowledge, network and develop new research collaborations. The meeting will also provide to opportunity for users to present their work and discuss research advances and outcomes in 3D imaging.

If you wish to present an oral or poster presentation then please send a one page abstract, including contact
names, affiliation and outline of study to: Catherine Roberts, email

9.00-9.30 Registration/Coffee at Cardiff Medicentre.

Confirmed Speakers:
