Engineering fashion: killer heels

This paper describes the uptake of 3D Rapid Prototyping technology into the fashion industries and presents a case study in fashion footwear, where a shoe concept has been developed from an MA final project into an early stage business model using components which have been laser sintered in Titanium and Polyamide. Increasing uptake of digital manufacturing into industry, combined with improved build speed, finish and size has allowed for greater flexibility in production of low volume, customised and bespoke products. The paper also describes the innovation potential for these technologies to cross domains, and suggests that their creative exploration by designers may be the key to developing new market opportunities
