Due to the lockdown and social distancing imposed as a result of the COVID-19 emergency, many brands in the footwear sector are seriously considering virtualizing their samples.
The digitization of their collections either totally or partially, would in fact allow them to significantly reduce the movement of people and products involved in the presentation of their samples. In addition, the associated costs would also be drastically reduced.
Considering the potential reduction in the physical samples and associated development costs plus the improvements in flexibility, many companies have already begun to treat this technology as an indispensable/must-have facility within their business, allowing them to have a quick return on their investment.
The Shoemaster® DESIGN suite, developed specifically for virtual prototyping, allows the user to create 3D models quickly and easily with the resulting images having incredible realism, starting simply from a sketch made by a designer.
Compatible with all the latest technologies for digital design, including interactive graphic tablets and true material scanners, Shoemaster® DESIGN allows you to quickly develop entire collections, with dozens of colour and style variations, all without the need to create any physical samples.
Furthermore, thanks to the automatic flattening and style grading features of Shoemaster® ENGINEER, 3D projects can then be engineered in a fraction of the time compared to traditional or two-dimensional development methods, ensuring fast production startup times.
