Description: Tissue Structure Information Modeling (TSIM) is a three-dimensional (3D) computer-aided design software specifically created for the Advanced Solutions brand biological 3D printers. It allows viewing of medical images from computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), digital 3D prototyping, and processing to the Advanced Solutions BioBot biological 3D printers.

TSIM is an intuitive software tool that empowers doctors and scientists to design, visualize, simulate and analyze 3D computer models of complex tissue structures. TSIM provides a comprehensive platform including medical imaging analysis, biological construct modeling, physical simulation, and fabrication. Starting with industry standard data, TSIM guides users through the construction of a biological model capable of being simulated, analyzed, and fabricated.
