Description

This course will teach you tools and methods to develop footwear design concepts for all types of shoes into 3D models and technical drawings that can be used for prototyping, range planning and fabricating with technologies like 3D printing. Students will learn these tools and methods through exercises that include developing a shoe last, sole units for trainers and high heeled footwear, and upper designs.

Rhinoceros 3D is a robust, versatile and intuitive 2D and 3D CAD software that enables you to turn your ideas into virtual prototypes ready for sampling. Rhino provides the tools and methods for taking advantage of new manufacturing technologies that enable the footwear product development process to be more efficient, sustainable and cutting-edge. This intensive and comprehensive course is designed to provide you with a solid foundation to extend and improve your current design methods, whilst giving you the confidence to explore a world of unprecedented design possibilities.

The course includes:

  • Digitising hand sketches into Rhino
  • Creating a last from a foot scan
  • Developing insoles, midsoles and outersoles for flat and high-heeled shoes
  • Designing uppers directly on the digital last
  • Preparing designs for grading and technical drawings
  • Optional: Making artistic visualisations (renderings) of shoes designed in the class
  • Optional: Prototyping with 3D printers and other digital fabrication technologies

Level:

Students can take this class if they have successfully completed the Introduction to Rhino for Fashion Product course or can demonstrate equivalent skills in Rhino to the instructor.
