Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing are reaching an amazingly broad range of applications. And the drive for improvements coincides with a tipping point in demands for ever-more personalized footwear.
Leading the sprint is the market for athletic footwear, now worth close to $50 billion and embracing every modern digital manufacturing technique possible. But, athletic footwear isn’t alone – the expansive market for footwear overall continues to grow with leaps and bounds, and Additive Manufacturing is a perfect fit.
A major attraction of Additive Manufacturing is design freedom, and this is no less true in the footwear industry. Design for Manufacturing, or DfM, brings with it constraints based upon traditional manufacturing methodology. Design for Additive Manufacturing, or DfAM, is very different and allows new ideas and designs to be explored.
