Mid semester break – Week 1 Tuesday

Testing out how a 3D printed edge edge with stitching holes could work to stitch on an upper. The edge also has an attached heel cup and toe box.


Making and attaching the upper.



The 3D printed edge creates a clean lining, maybe this shoe be on the outside of the upper. The heel and toe lining work well and could be thicker but there is also a possibility to stitch the upper onto these parts too. The upper is still difficult to measure and not get any pulling or folding, maybe it would be worthwhile trying to use a last of finding open source stamps.

I am an art design student currently at massey university interested in all spects of art, my main areas consist of product design, painting and drawing and like to use these as a way of conveying thought and creativity in design. My family is originally from Holland but have recently moved to New Zealand. I hope to one day be involved in the designing of sport gear overseas, a job that will combine my passion for both art and sport.
