Hi Konstantinos,

Another really good option is to export the field containing the biomesh3d to MATLAB using the exportfieldtomatlab function. It returns an intuitive-to-use structure containing all the mesh info. The data is pretty self-explanatory. To read the structure you can alternatively use scilab or octave if you don't have MATLAB. From there you can write a script to convert the data to your format of choice.

Hope this info helps. If you have any questions, just shoot.

All the best,

Hi Konstantinos.

The output of BioMesh3D is a scirun field file.  It is a bit trick to use outside of SCIRun. However, SCIRun has several output types to choose from.  The easiest way to convert a fld file is to use SCIRun.

Open up SCIRun and add the modules ReadField and WriteField from the Module menu, in the DataIO group.  Connect the modules with the middle mouse button.   now find the fld file in the ReadField ui and set the output filename, location and type in the WriteField ui.  Press the ExecuteAll button when you are done and the file will be converted.  There are several file types supported in the WriteField module, including stl, obj, matlab, and various ascii formats.

One problem that I still have however in my work is the generation of quality mesh of multimaterial domains. For this reason I decided try biomesh3D which seems very promising for my needs however there is not support implemented for other softwares and I would like to convert the generated mesh in other formats that I could easily import in FeBio. Is it possible to share with me information about the mesh format of biomesh3D so i could write a converting scrypt to other formats? Thank you in advance for considering my email. I am looking forward to your reply.
