I2M is an acronym to name the plug-in “Image to Mesh”. With this plug-in we can import into GiD data in digital image format and generate the mesh directly from the image data.

This plug-in is available from internet retrieve option since release GiD 13.1.4d.


The current version is able to import one 2D image a perform an extrusion along n slices. For next releases we are working on new features to be able to import multiple slices and images in 3D volume format.

Using this plug-in we are able to analyze long fiber composite, see below some images of this process:
