Amira Mesh Option

Adds tools for the generation of 3D FEM

The Mesh Option offers advanced features for scientists working with complex surface analysis, volume reconstruction using tetrahedral grids, vector field visualization, and complex tensor computation. This package is designed especially for Finite Element Modeling (FEM), for computational analysis of 3D regular fields, brain science, and 3D fluid dynamics simulations.
Platforms
Windows 32-bit, Windows 64-bit, Mac OS, Linux

Analyze and Evaluate Grids
After loading your CT or MRI data, mesh the volume with an optimized 3D grid, assign material properties and boundary conditions. Export the result to an external FEM application to perform simulations and import the output back into Amira to visualize it.
