In this paper, we will walk people through the steps from creating a 3D model to analyzing the hip joint. So we browsed a lot of sites for a CT scan of the hip joint before we zeroed in on the scanned file. Then the scanned file is converted to a 3D model by the use of Slicer 3D software. Further, along with the paper, we would have discussed the difficulties encountered to prepare a solid model from the 3D model for analysis purposes and how to overcome it via the use of various software. Software like Mesh Mixer and Mesh Lab were used to reconstruct the model before transferring to Solid Works to convert to the appropriate file type for use in the ANSYS software for analysis. This is done by first uploading a CT scan of the hip joint downloaded from the 3D Slicer. The 3D Slicer software offers three views which help in deciding the correct part which we particularly want. The CT scan used contained the pelvis of the body, which can be adjusted to display the complete hip joint specifically. To start generating the 3D model, the editor option helps in highlighting the particular portion of the scan via different colors which represent different parts- the tissues, bones, organs, etc- of the body. After this, the 3D model is generated using the 3D Slicer software and exported to ANSYS for determining the force distribution over the hip joint.
