Shoe Last Maker is the first and only fully parametric shoe last design software. If you’d like to learn how to use Shoe Last Maker, please first check out the introduction tutorial. Then to learn more, please check out some more detailed tutorials below.
Every time a shoe last is designed with Shoe Last Maker, the framework curves are created entirely from a set of controllable parameters. Then surfaces are fit through the curves to design the shoe last model. There is no reliance on surfaces nor curves from existing shoe lasts. This makes Shoe Last Maker the most scientific system for designing the core geometry of footwear. And with a more scientific approach comes the possibly of better standardization, customization, performance, and footwear comfort.
Our shoe last design software operates as a plugin within the commercial CAD software Rhino3D. The shoe last design software beta is available here: Shoe Last Design Software. And the templates are available here: Shoe Last Design Software Templates. Below are some blog posts to help you get starting using Shoe Last Maker.
