Who should attend

This workshop is aimed at those interested in obtaining high fidelity models from 3D image data. You will experience first-hand how quick and easy it is to visualize and process 3D image data (CT, MRI, FIB-SEM...), and generate models for CAD design, FE/CFD simulation and 3D printing. If you are working in areas such as Materials Science, Industrial Reverse Engineering and Life Sciences, then this workshop is for you.
