3D Medical Devices and Visuals Services
In order to create medical devices as a 3D medical visualisation we use what are called CAD or Computer Aided Design files. CAD is the computer technology used by technical designers to document the design process of a medical device or a product. The CAD file is the resulting file that contains the exact design specifications.
By using the CAD files of the medical device and its design we are able to access the precise detailed diagrams of the materials, processes, tolerances and dimensions with specific conventions of the product or device in question. With this information we can produce either 2D two-dimensional or 3D three-dimensional diagrams, as hyper realistic renderings. The 3D versions are interactive and can be rotated or viewed from any angle on screen and their internal structure viewed.
3D Interactive Model from a CAD File
3D renders from CAD files produce hyper realistic animations of the medical device. Interactive 3D models from CAD files are the ultimate way to market or demonstrate how a medical device looks and works. They are created so that they can be used within medical communications as a marketing, promotional, training and a sales tool. These interactive graphics are touch-enabled/ 3D renders that are capable of being displayed on a web browser supported by HTML5. The content can be moved using mouse or finger on touch-enabled devices such as an iBook, which does not require a browser plugin to make the render work.
2D Illustration Model from a CAD File
2D renders from CAD files produce hyper realistic illustrations of the medical device. The 2D renderings or illustrations are used instead of a photograph as they can be manipulated to show an exact surface replica or internal structure. The illustration can be better than a photograph as the lighting, materials, setting can be altered exactly in production. Also, photography is useless when the device is still a prototype and has not actually been built yet. This is why the use of CAD files to produce the illustration is so effective as it brings the device to life even before its been built. They are used by our clients within medical marketing, to encourage sales of a new product or a device, to gain funding for a device that has not yet come to market, to promote a new device even been before it has been manufactured.
