Frequently Asked Questions

Why does the right side panel stay open on the Mac and Windows 10 on full-screen mode?

The reason for this is because our app is cross-platform. Any content you produce and save on iPad, Mac or Windows 10 will look exactly the same on any other device that it’s displayed on. Essentially, we only allow the model to move inside a space that is 4:3 in aspect ratio. If we allowed otherwise, some elements would be cropped when viewing on a different device. We will be working on improving this over the next few months.


How many systems are included in Complete Anatomy?

The app features the following 12 systems; Skeletal, Muscular (7 layers), Connective Tissue, Arterial (including the Heart), Venous, Lymphatic, Nervous (including the Brain), Respiratory, Digestive, Endocrine, Urogenital, and Integumentary.

Does Complete Anatomy include male and female models?

The male model is included, along with the female pelvic prosection model. We are currently developing the full female model and will be released very soon.

What is the difference between Complete Anatomy and Essential Anatomy?

Complete Anatomy provides the user with a detailed (complete) experience, while Essential Anatomy provides a general (essential) overview. To compare their features and tools, please refer to our comparison chart.

How do I access the Curriculum Manager feature?

The Curriculum Manager feature is solely for educators. It requires a purchase of the Educator License for Complete Anatomy, which is available here. Alternatively, please email with your details and your local sales representative will contact you to discuss further.

Should I choose the Regional or Systemic Undergraduate Course?

The Undergraduate Human Anatomy Systemic and Regional courses are suitable for new users without a basic knowledge of anatomy, students taking anatomy for the first time, or for those desiring an in-depth and thorough anatomy review prior to beginning an upper division course. Both courses contain the same level of content information, however the teaching resources (Lectures, Recordings, Screens and Quizzes) are arranged differently.

I cannot use the Cut Tool on organs.

Right now, the Cut Tool in Complete Anatomy is only compatible with the heart, but we’re working on more organs, and they will feature in the app very soon. You can cut all other anatomical structures in the model, and we hope this helps you in your anatomical education!

How do I access the full female model?

We are currently developing the full female model for Complete Anatomy. In the meantime, Complete Anatomy contains the female pelvic prosection. We are striving to generate a true representation of the female anatomy and not merely a feminized version of the male anatomy as is currently most common in the 3D anatomy market.
