For an undisclosed client, iMaterialise asked us to design a shoe to be printed in rubber within 5 days time.
The shoe would have to be based on a 3D scan of a female foot.
Due to the characteristics of this rubber material and the short time available, we opted for a moccasin-like shoe.
Due to unforeseen circumstances with the 3D scans of the human foot (with 123D Catch), the time to design & create the model went from 5 days to a mere 4 hours. The shoe turned out simple and rather rough around the edges. It even accidentally, I might add, resembles a certain kind of shoe (Crocs anyone?) most of us don't like.
The process of making this shoe is also featured on the iMaterialise blog.
