NBEL Innovation Workshops is the first AUTODESK authorized training center and academic partner in Israel to offer professional training in medical design.

Located in Hadassah Medical Center, Jerusalem at the beautiful campus of BIOHOUSE

You can take any of the following courses: essentials (1 week, 8 hours), advanced training (3 weeks, 24 hours) and designer (3 weeks, 20 hours). For each module you will receive an official certification from Autodesk and NBEL.

Courses will be delivered in Hebrew (course materials are in English) and in the evenings. . Instruction in English can be offered for organized groups.

Audience: designers, engineers, and medical staff

stage 1:


Essentials module


Essentials of Computer Aided Design (CAD) with Sliced3D, Meshmixer, and Fusion 360 for medical innovation

In this course, we will discuss the theoretical fundamentals of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and use Slicer3D, Autodesk® Meshmixer™, and Fusion 360™ to create and modify a CAD for a cranial implant.

Duration: 8 hours in class [2 sessions, 4 hours / session]

Healthcare Simulation Specialist, David Escobar talks about how he uses Fusion 360 to 3D print simulators for training physicians and pre-surgical preparation.

Advanced module

Advanced CAD: Engineering skills for medical innovation

It is crucially important to understand how parts are made, assembled, and simulated to better identify areas to improve and optimize a design. This course will guide you through the analysis and basic design of injection molded parts, how to assemble and manage complex assemblies, understanding basic static stress and shape optimization simulation studies, and how to create detail drawing and exploded view creation for manufacturing.

Duration: 8 hours in class [1 week, 2 sessions, 4 hours / session]

Design skills for medical innovation

In this course, we will overview various complex topics such as the creation of sculpted bodies, working with surfaces, and generating renderings and visualizations of products

Duration: 8 hours in class [2 sessions, 4 hours / session]

Design for manufacturing medical devices

This course walks you through various machining techniques and ideas for basic CNC mill toolpaths, lathe toolpaths, and advanced toolpath creation, as well designing for 3D printing. We will explore how to analyze part design for injection molding and learn how to create a core as well as cavity blocks.

Duration: 8 hours in class [2 sessions, 4 hours / session]

stage 2:


Designer module

Design thinking for the medical realm

In this course, we will use human factors, ergonomics, and user-centered design methods and standards to carry out the mechanical engineering design of a medical device. Working within a specified brief, we'll integrate international standards that will help you to build your technical knowledge to ensure your design meets the standards and needs of the user.

We'll apply user analysis methods to design for the intended user and to predict and identify characteristics that give us a realistic understanding of the end user. Then, we will use task analysis to systematically describe user interactions to better match human capabilities to the demands of the device. Next, we will use anthropometric analysis to identify and collect statistical data from key parts of the human body to identify where we might optimize the device. Finally, we'll use focus groups to gather important feedback and opinions from users.

Duration: 6 hours in class [2 sessions, 3 hours / session]

Identifying needs at the Hadassah Medical Center

Effectively identifying, prioritizing and translating user needs into design guidance is critical to successfully developing a safe, effective and desirable medical device. In this course we will meet with medical professionals at the Hadassah Medical Center to identify relevant medical needs.

Duration: 6 hours in class [2 sessions, 3 hours / session]

stage 3:


Final Project

In this final course you will work closely with our mentors and instructors to work on your final project.

Duration: 8 hours in class [2 sessions, 4 hours / session]

Audience: Engineers, designers, and medical staff. Can be during training.
Introduction Cost: Essential module, 8 hours: 800 NIS; Advanced module, 24 hours: 2,000 NIS; Design module, 20 hours: 2,400 NIS. Entire course in advance: 4,800 NIS (instead 5,200 NIS).
