Delcam CRISPIN to show ShoeMaker, ShoeCost and Engineer Pro in Vietnam

The latest version of Delcam CRISPIN’s ShoeMaker design software includes new options for heel creation

Delcam CRISPIN will demonstrate the latest releases of its ShoeMaker, ShoeCost and Engineer Pro software for the design and manufacture of all types of footwear at the Shoes & Leather Vietnam exhibition to be held in Ho Chi Minh City from 16th to 18th July.

Delcam CRISPIN is the world’s largest supplier of design and manufacturing software to the footwear industry.  It is the only supplier able to provide a complete solution for the 3D design and manufacture of lasts, uppers and soles.

ShoeMaker is the only footwear CAD program to integrate fully the 3D design of lasts, uppers and soles, so allowing the complete shoe to be developed and visualised in a single system.  This integrated approach benefits all footwear designers, but is particularly advantageous for companies making sports shoes and other designs that include complex soles.

The 2014 version offers improved visualisation of designs with the new KeyShot rendering engine, plus the ability to create lasts for boot designs, more options for heel design, and additional items in the extensive library of accessories supplied with the software.

ShoeCost provides a clear breakdown of all the costs involved in footwear manufacture, making it easy to compare the actual cost of the shoe to the target cost.  Costs can be included for cut pattern pieces and components, as well as for labour and overheads.  The overall cost for the shoe changes dynamically when the simple drag and drop functionality is used to add or remove elements of the design, such as pattern pieces and components.  This makes it easy for footwear professionals to stay within their target cost and to produce accurate costing reports quickly.

A more intuitive interface has been introduced for the 2014 release, together with closer integration with other Delcam CRISPIN CADCAM packages to streamline the design and manufacturing process, whilst still giving manufacturers better control over costs and profitability.

Engineer Pro helps users to produce samples and graded footwear patterns for manufacturing in the fastest possible time, whilst also helping to minimise tooling costs.  The 2014 version includes a number of enhancements that add ‘intelligence’ to the software, and so make it more intuitive and faster to use.

One of these enhancements can be seen when creating a chain from a series of intersecting lines.  Engineer Pro anticipates the chain that the user wants and highlights the potential chain as the cursor hovers over a line.  A single click accepts the chain, making the process very quick.
