Birmingham, UK -- Delcam Crispin will launch its ShoeMaker CAD software for the design of all types of footwear at the SIMAC exhibition to be held in Bologna, Italy, 18-20 Oct 2011.
The company says ShoeMaker may be the first program to integrate the 3D design of uppers and soles, so allowing the complete shoe to be developed and visualised in a single system.
"While the integrated system will benefit all footwear designers, it will be particularly advantageous for companies making sports shoes and other designs that include complex soles," says Delcam Crispin.
ShoeMaker has an easy-to-learn interface, making it ideal for concept designers that might come from an artistic background rather than an engineering education.
All of the icons feature specific footwear imagery, making the software very intuitive to use. However, ShoeMaker has the full power of Delcam's PowerSHAPE CAD system in the background, allowing the most complex design challenges to be tackled successfully by experienced users.
