INESCOP: 3D for virtual shoe prototypes

3D technology today is a powerful tool to support the interaction between design and sample making and for marketing and sales processes for reducing the number of samples to be produced.

3D requires powerful and fast tools for modeling, but to obtain images that are indistinguishable from the real ones, it is necessary to introduce powerful rendering systems and, above all, a higher level of digitization of materials than can be achieved with a simple photo or traditional scan.

The workflow of the ICad 3D+ suite involves 3d scanning of materials, rendering with multiple lights, and workflow platforms for collaboration among the various professionals involved.
