Paper presents an evaluation and comparison of two different types of software for generating a 3D model from medical imaging data: first, a dedicated 3D reconstruction Mimics interface, by Materialise and second, an engineering CAD (a Solid Works and AutoCAD) interface. Advantages and limitations of both software types are outlined and there some observations for 3D reconstruction of anatomic surfaces are presented.
