Is it possible to generate mesh from picture?

Is it possible to generate mesh from picture?

Is it possible to generate mesh from picture?

I am trying to generate a mesh based on a photograph of a slice of an object, where the thickness of the slice is known.

I am currently generating the mesh in matlab, creating input files for ABAQUS to use, however if possible I would like to just do it all in ABAQUS, I don't think it is possible but I'm fairly new so I thought I'd check here first to see if it is.


RE: Is it possible to generate mesh from picture?


I think it is not possible to do in ABAQUS what you are asking. By another hand you can use density segmentation softwares like MIMICS or 3DDoctor. This softwares are originally used for the reconstruction of biomechanical models obtained with image slices generated from CT scan or MR scan. Take a look at the software web pages...
You can obtain after this process a STL or IGES geometric files that  you can import and mesh in ABAQUS! Ok?

Best regards!

It is really good if they can applied to 3-D object. Anyone do meshing on the human body?

RE: Is it possible to generate mesh from picture?

You might want to have a look at Simpleware (http://www.simpleware.co.uk/) - it has been used for meshing in the area of biomechanics and similar.

Check out site below. They have meshing software utilizing Max Hex Algoritm. It works well with stl files for me.
