Perspectives from a custom shoe maker 

This presentation is about the experience of using various 3D scanning technologies and CAD programs to visualize the fit of custom shoes. Jeff Mandel will discuss how scans of feet can be compared with models of lasts in an attempt to interpret these images and predict fit. He will also cover key aspects of the analog processes of measuring, fitting and last adjustment that are still functional parts of the digital processes of scanning, modeling and CNC milling in the production of custom shoes. The work of designing and producing custom shoes today is not isolated from the world of advanced manufacturing and design. Come see how Jeff uses digital tools productively and affordably to understand the relationships among shoes, feet and fit.
