Finite element analysis is a method of continuum mechanics that has been vital to the biomechanics community due to its ability to evaluate structures with complicated geometries. Generation of patient-specific finite element models from medical imaging data requires a series of steps including image segmentation, mesh generation, assignment of material properties, and definition of loading and boundary conditions. Each of these steps can be challenging and time-consuming. Here, we aim to address the challenge of automating the generation of hexahedral meshes.
