A hybrid of traditional Shoemaking and 3D Print technology

MA Footwear student Ross Barber shows new 3D printed components combined with traditional shoe making craft at the LCF MA graduate exhibition. Previewing carbon black 'soft-touch' flexible material with sponsorship from EOS, and utilising optimised material structures from Within Labs - which create the organic sole and overshoe structures by generating honeycomb like structures in a software package normally used for medical implants and aerospace engineering applications. The shoes were also on the catwalk at the V&A graduate show, proving that the technology is now going beyond just prototyping and into the realms of manufacturing real product solutions.
