I want to know which software is best for this work????

By Abdul Haseeb Malik on 14 Oct 09:45 14 answers 824 views 6 comments

i have to design human jaw.. images are included.... bone thickness varies from 1mm to 3mm... i just want to know which software is capable of such complex surfacing... remember i have to thicken surface at the end and export to igs or stl format should be possible.

Added images

    I would recommend rhinoceros. Download the trial and try it

    Please Google the techniques of converting surface models into solid models with Rhino. It is not a simple click of a mouse button, this is a complex task, and you should experiment with Rhino to get the desired effects.
    Good Luck.

    Well I would be asking how accurate the model needs to be, and is this just a modelling exercise or will you be working to specific dimensions that have not been shown, then as a final question, how long do you have to complete the project. ?

    If you are going to work from those images then you are going to struggle with whatever software you choose. If it needs to be accurate with tooth shapes and gum/tooth connections then to be honest you will need poly modelling and sub division support. Modo is probably the best suited as it is accurate to 1/100th mm. If you do not need to be totally accurate then you can use Rhino, but it would benefit from T-Splines plugin support.

    thanks d6a1bcfb great answer...
    accuracy is needed in thickness... variation in shape is allowed.

    surface thickness can be achieved at the end in rhinoceros like solidworks??

    Thickness should be accurate,because later on it is used in analysis.

    I do not know what you mean. Surfaces have no thickness, no mass. Only the solid model has mass.....but yes, rhino can also work as accurately as solidworks

    i know surface have no thickness,in solidworks,once you have completed your model... you can also give thickness to surface... so in other words... you can change surface into solid... but solidworks mostly fail in thickening of complex surfaces...

    I have to agree with engdesign. Rhino has the ability to convert it's own surface models into solid models. Then you may export them to iges or step formats.
    If you have to use your models for stress analysis, having a solid model is not necessary.

    Dear AbdulHaseeb, in the recent past, when I used to scan and reverse engineering (RE) surfaces, the best software I experienced was RapidWorks (RW). It's a parametric RE software that could be plugged into SolidWorks (SW). After first sectioning and rebuilding surfaces within RW I exported results into SW for improving C0 and C1 continuity. Everything with a $2000,00 3D Laser scanner which is built from NextEngine.

    Good domino., I will review more about 3shape ..

    I normally use a 3d printer. because I am not familiar with such a model .. I will learn ...

Add your answer to: "I want to know which software is best for this work????"
