Adidas & Carbon Reveal Futurecraft 3D-Printed Shoe

(BusinessInsider) Adidas and Silicon Valley 3D printer startup Carbon have revealed an innovative new shoe, called the Futurecraft 4D. The soles are 3D printed using a liquid resin that uses light to set the shape and heat to bind the mechanical properties, a process Carbon calls Digital Light Synthesis (DLS).
Carbon says its DLS allows for the midsoles to be printed essentially with zero support material, meaning they can save on raw material costs and dramatically reduce manual post-processing steps of traditional additive manufacturing.
