3DShoemaker is the only fully parametric shoe last design software. With 3DShoemaker, the art of shoe last design becomes science. In addition to shoe lasts, you can parametrically design heels, wedges, and orthotics. Everything can be graded to different sizes and patterns can be flattened. 3DShoemaker can also import 3D foot models for designing customer footwear. And morphing curves and bodies from one shoe last to another is also possible.
3DShoemaker operates as a plugin in the commercial CAD software Rhino3D (for Windows) and can be installed via the package manager. Rhino3D itself is the most popular general purpose CAD software used by shoemakers, so it is a great tool to have.
All versions of 3DShoemaker come with a 30 day money back guarantee (minus small processing fee of $8.50). 3DShoemaker is also fully upgradable.
* Perpetual licensing is for continuous use of 3DShoemaker for the stated version of Rhino. Note that development for the current version will stop at some point after the next version of Rhino comes out. You may still continue using 3DShoemaker in the version of Rhino at time of purchase, however it is recommended to upgrade to the next version of both Rhino and 3DShoemaker, the latter of which can be done with a 50% upgrade discount. Also note that purchase of a perpetual license only includes basic email support (detailed below) until 3DShoemaker for the next version of Rhino comes out.
** Advanced design features include but are not limited to editing multiple parametric curves simultaneously, showing surfaces when updating, and using clipping planes.
