Semester 2 – Week 10 Friday

Heel and Toe caps

The next part for my upper is the built in 3D printed heel and toe caps. I used the shape and forms from models earlier on for a full scale print.


These help give structure and shape to the upper. I printed 3 sets so that I could make one working pair of shoes and one final model shoe.


Final model presentation

We were asked to display our current stage for the final model in class, at this point I had the overall shape and 3D print details of the upper, along with the heel and toe caps but was still working on putting together the soles.


I simply included imagery of how the sole and midsole will look once finished.

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.
