Abstract

In this paper we have detailed the CAD methods that led to the obtaining of vertebrae and intervertebral discs. Initially, all the vertebrae from a corpse were scanned three-dimensionally. These models have been taken over in the Geomagic program where replenishment, triangle reduction and finishing techniques have been applied. These surface models were imported into SolidWorks where they were transformed into virtual solids. In the Assembly module, all the virtual vertebrae were loaded where they were positioned anatomically. A system of vertebrae L4, L5 and intervertebral disc was analyzed in Ansys Workbench. Finally, important conclusions were drawn.
