(BusinessWireNews) Materialise, through a partnership with RSPrint, has entered into an agreement with HP to scale an end-to-end 3D solution to design and manufacture fully customized 3D-printed insoles. FitStation powered by HP will integrate Materialise software for 3D design automation, print preparation and production management. This alliance offers footwear brands the opportunity to express their unique brand proposition by allowing them to produce individualized products on-demand.
“3D Printing holds the promise of revolutionizing the footwear industry by offering a level of customization never seen before”, says Fried Vancraen, Materialise CEO. This makes it possible and cost-effective to mass manufacture entirely individualized products. As a complementary manufacturing technology 3D Printing allows for fundamental design optimizations and functional improvements, such as lighter designs, that are impossible to create with standard manufacturing technologies.
