Insigneo-developed software

More software than is listed below has been developed by Insigneo researchers; this will added in due course.


Builder Mark II - Organ (Builder2MO) is a pre-processor for musculo-skeletal subject-specific models. This freeware allow you to import imaging, gait analysis, EMG, segmentation, and finite element data, and fuse them toward the creation of organ scale subject-specific models of bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, and cartilages.


openBF is an open-source 1D blood flow solver based on the MUSCL finite-volume numerical scheme, written in Julia and released under the Apache 2.0 free software license.

Insigneo-developed web services

CT2S web service

The CT2S (Computed Tomography to Strength) web service provides an estimate of the strength of human bone, using non-invasive medical imaging. A user uploads a computed tomography (CT) scan of the anatomy, and receives back a set of values that characterise the strength of the bone under a series of common loading conditions. This service was developed as part of the MultiSim project.

Using commercial software


The University has a number of licenses for Abaqus but Insigneo have purchased 20 additional licenses, the use of which restricted to a specific group of users. These additional licenses are available from the same license server as the University-purchased licenses.

If you would like to be added to the list of users who can use the additional licenses then please contact the Insigneo tech team.


The IMSB sub-group has purchased and maintains three floating license for the Amira software, which provides for 3D/4D visualisation, processing and analysis functionality. Please contact the Insigneo tech team if you would like to discuss getting access to these licenses.


A Windows-only application for bone and/or muscle segmentation.

If you want to install/use Mimics then please contact the Insigneo tech team.

CiCS currently manage the following:

  • 2x Mimics Research licenses
  • 20x Mimics Student licenses


Please contact the Insigneo tech team if you want to install/use the SolidWorks computer-aided design (CAD) software.
