One Software: From Medical Images to CAD

A single streamlined workflow enables you to create manufacturable and 3D-printable designs directly from medical images. We provide powerful medical image analysis tools within Rhinoceros, so you no longer need to import and export between different tools or switch software for the different steps in the workflow. With Rhino3DMedical you will improve your efficiency, save time and costs when creating biomedical CAD models such as implants and prostheses.

Factsheet: https://rhino3dmedical.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/FactSheet_Rhino3DMedical.pdf

Your Benefits

Directly read and process all common medical image formats (DICOM, NIFTI, mhd). View, analyze, measure and annotate images, segment, extract, and repair meshes and enjoy the rich CAD modeling freedom directly within your 3D image space. Moreover, you can automate workflows through Rhino-Grasshopper or Python scripting for batch processing and repetitive tasks.

Cost-Efficient and Scalable Design Process

With Rhino3DMedical you significantly speed-up iterations between measurements, annotation, design and positioning of a CAD model within an anatomical structure. You don’t need to deal with the hassle of format incompatibilities and through the integrated Rhino-python engine you can high-throughput your medical data and directly connect it to your FEM tool. Applications include patient-specific or general implant design, pre-operative planning, virtual surgery, biomedical engineering, medical training and education.

FEATURES

Visualization: Read DICOM, NIFTI, mhd; display and navigate through the slices; view the 3D volume; set color look-up table; adjust background color
Analysis: Adjust contrast; thresholding based on tissue intensities; highlight and label regions; draw directly on images; annotate and measure
Segmentation: Intensity-based segmentation; semi-automatic segmentation; manual segmentation; edge, surface, volume segmentation; 2D and 3D segmentation
Mesh creation: Automatic mesh extraction; mesh repairing; hole filling; smoothing; materials, texture and rendering
Freeform design: Organic surface modelling; precision modelling; latticing and structures; high-end rendering engine; Python-, batch-, Grasshopper scripting
Clear user interface: Easy to learn and use; powerful and customizable; extendable through scripts and plugins

HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS

Rhino3DMedical is currently available for Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.
Rhino3DMedical is currently developed for Rhino 6. Note that for Rhino 6 compatibility, version 6.18 or higher needs to be installed (6.17 and previous are not compatible with Rhino3DMedical). If you have Rhino 6 already installed and it says it’s up to date, you can manually install the update by downloading the installer from McNeel’s website.
