We present a new approach to simulation-based medical device design by integrating current CAD and FEA systems and developing natural human-computer interfaces to control the resulting integrated system. In order to utilize the high performance FEA computing power, a network communication program was developed and a Python script was used to initialize simulations and read calculated results. A complete design process of a breast biopsy cannula was demonstrated.
