Prototyping 3/27-3/28, 4/4 ; Final Board proposal

prototyping 3/27:

the first model was based off of masking tape mold of an existing shoe. It was traced then cut off and stapled onto a insole to form a quick prototype.

The next prototyping faze was more of a measured approach. It was first tried onto paper, then onto a cheap prototypical canvas. However, the materials was flimsy and couldn’t support a stable shape.

Poster proposal:



the next prototype features a more measured approach with the actual material. It is the final prototype before the final model.

Next steps:

I modeled a shoe last in solidworks and will be attempting to cnc a shoe last for the final model. It was according to the shoe midsole i’ve taken apart, but can honestly work to any midsole due to the pliability of the material.
