I have a question about the original STL files of the spine, especially the thorax.
At first my background / what I already did:
For my masterthesis I am working on the “SpineFixationWFDKinematics” Model at the moment. I would like to simulate different static postures with the input of every single vertebrae. For that I set the rhythm of the lumbar and the cervical spine off. I implemented new code lines to have the opportunity to change the orientation of every single vertebra (like in other comments written).
Now I would like to work on the thorax. I read all the comments and know that it is not that easy to change the rigid segment.
Is it possible to work with the STL files of the spine and where can I find them?
We can see the individual vertebrae (T1-T12) and togehter with the ribs they build one rigid segment. But how can I work on the individual vertebrae as individual segments?
Please let me know, if I should explain it on a different way, I am a newbie.
Thanks in advance.
