Texturing 453 Surfaces of a Shoe Sole: Discover Texturing

Solutions: 3-matic, Build Processor, e-stage, Magics, Stereolithography

Shoe manufacturers often use a master to cast the soles of the shoe. Instead of creating a mold for each type of sole, the bigger shoe manufacturers nowadays 3D print the soles. Manually assigning a texture to each surface area takes a lot of time. In addition, you end up with huge STL file sizes that your computer can no longer handle.
