Dutch shoe designer Marloes ten Bhömer has created a pair of 3D printed shoes that can be individually made to fit each person perfectly.

Currently on show at the Design Museum Holon in Israel, the ‘Rapidprototypedshoe’ is modelled on a computer and produced using a 3D printer that layers two different materials in microscopic structures.

    Brilliant! Rapid prototyping is taking good steps into becoming the preferred method, just hope it goes mainstream quick to reduce prices =)

    Yes. It is opening up all sorts of new possibilities, and will one day be more accessible… as long as it doesn’t destroy traditional craft, and hand made pieces. :)
