About Project

The shoe industry is rapidly embracing 3D printing technology, and for good reason. DLP 3D printing with ultra-detail resin offers unparalleled design freedom and material efficiency, empowering shoe designers to push the boundaries of innovation.

Traditional shoe sole manufacturing often restricts intricate details and limits functional optimization. DLP 3D printing breaks these barriers, allowing designers to:

• Craft complex geometries: Imagine intricate patterns and textures, like the star-like shapes adorning our 3D printed single right shoe sole. DLP technology faithfully reproduces even the most delicate features.

• Enhance functionality: Design soles with targeted features for specific needs. Our prototypes showcase soles with a mix of circular and linear patterns, commonly used for superior grip.

• Optimize performance: 3D printing allows for exploration of lightweight materials and structures that can improve shock absorption or overall shoe performance.

At FacFox, we specialize in DLP 3D printing services tailored for the shoe industry. Our ultra-detail resins ensure your prototypes capture every design detail, from intricate patterns to functional textures.

Here's what sets us apart:

• Expertise: Our team of engineers understands the specific needs of shoe design and can assist you throughout the 3D printing process.

• High-quality materials: We use only the finest DLP resins to guarantee exceptional detail and finish for your prototypes.

• Fast turnaround times: Get your prototypes quickly to accelerate your design and development process.

  • Step 1: Design Preparation. The desired shoe sole designs were digitally created and optimized for 3D printing. Special attention was given to the complex geometric and grip-enhancing patterns required for the soles.
  • Step 2: Model Checking. Each model was meticulously inspected by engineers to ensure that all details could be accurately printed.
  • Step 3: Quotation. A quote was provided based on the scale and quantity of the soles to be printed.
  • Step 4: Support Addition. Necessary supports were added to the models using slicer software, preparing them for the printing process.
  • Step 5: 3D Printing. The soles were printed using a DLP 3D printer with Ultra Detail Resin, which allowed for high precision and intricate detailing.
  • Step 6: Layer Formation. The DLP process involved curing photopolymer resin layer by layer with a light source directed by a digital micromirror device (DMD).
  • Step 7: Rinsing. After printing, the soles were rinsed with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to remove any uncured resin.
  • Step 8: Post-Processing. The supports were carefully removed, and the soles were simply sanded to achieve a smooth finish.
  • Step 9: Quality Check. The final prototypes were examined for any defects and to ensure they met the required specifications.
  • Step 10: Prototype Evaluation. The printed soles were then tested for fit, comfort, and performance, with particular focus on the grip and shock absorption capabilities.
