3D-printed shoes win Jimmy Choo Award
Zoe Jia-Yu Daiis is breaking the 3D mold with a project that pushes the limits of shoe-making with the introduction of 3D printing. While traditional footwear manufacturing has relied on the same techniques for decades, Zoe Jia-Yu Daiis – a fashion graduate and shoe designer – decided to turn to 3D printing to shake things up!
Her collection of nature-inspired 3D-printed shoes pushes the limits of traditional shoe-making methods. “It was clear that 3D printing could not only achieve this, but would also allow a large amount of flexibility in the design stage, as well as allowing me to push the limits of design structures,” Zoe Jia-Yu Daiis told 3ders.org in a recent interview.
ZBrush was one of the software packages used to create the 3D models for this project, alongside 3ds Max, Rhino, and Maya. Find out more in the full article by 3Ders.org.
