To visualize and communicate a footwear collection in a realistic and complete way and to enhance its technical precision and aesthetic effectiveness, now more than ever you need tools that speak an advanced virtual and visual language.
Tools that speak a common functional language not only for the designer and the manufacturer, but even for your present or future customer.
This program is particularly beneficial to:
This intensive study program lays the groundwork to tackle the following professional careers:
As far as state of the art 3D tools for the shoe industry are concerned, we chose iCAD3D+. Other tools for 3D shoe design do in fact exist, but in Arsutoria, we believe that iCAD3D+ is an excellent product from many standpoints, especially when it comes to offering the possibility of connecting the 3D design to the technical development of the shoe in an extremely precise and fast way.
However, there are good reasons to teach a more generalist 3D modelling tool as well: the first and most important is the extremely accessible price, number of available online resources, continuous updating, and the possibility of exchanging data with many other tools that are part of different digital workflows. In Arsutoria, we chose Rhinoceros, because it is quite popular in the footwear industry, especially for the 3D design of soles.
Starting from 2022 we decided to insert the topic of material digitalisation and rendering technologies.
Digitalisation is the evolution of simply scanning a material: today it is possible to construct extremely sophisticated digital versions of materials (PBR) with impressive features for three-dimensional visualization. Finally, rendering tools allow for the creation of images of virtual shoe prototypes, which are hard to tell apart from physical samples.
