Orthomodel brochure - .PDF file.

Delcam has launched the 2014 R3 version of its Orthomodel software for the design of custom orthotic insoles. The release includes the ability to display multiple 2D images and a 3D model simultaneously, as well as a range of improvements to the user interface to simplify workflow and reduce design times. 

Orthomodel offers ‘real-time design’ of both accommodative orthotics, ideal for patients with diabetes and for those requiring comfort insoles, and corrective orthotics, to address problems with the patient’s foot orientation and gait cycle.

The software has a direct interface to Delcam’s Iqube range of scanners, all of which are able to scan the patient’s foot, foam boxes or casts. As an open system, it can also import scan data from most other systems as well as create NC code for orthotics generated in other CAD systems.

Orthomodel enables multiple 2D images to be imported and overlaid onto the 3D scan data. This ability creates a dynamic environment where users can interpret the information represented by the 2D images in situ over the 3D model.

Also new to this version is an updated user interface. A new image page to capture, import and present multiple images, plus extra display utilities on the alignment and design pages, make for a better user experience and enable decisions on the orthotic design to be made quickly and accurately, according to Delcam.

Key features and benefits

  • Orthomodel offers ‘real-time design’ of both accommodative orthotics and and corrective orthotics.
  • The software brings together 2D image data and 3D scan data. When both types of data are presented together, users are better able to decide upon the required features in the orthotic.
  • It allows multiple images to be displayed at the same time. For example, the user can overlay the photographic image of the plantar surface and an image from a pressure system and can see the data from both while overlaid on the 3D scan.
  • The ability to vary the transparency of the scan, images and orthotic allows a full appreciation of how the various elements work together to influence the overall design. As a result, more informed decisions can be made as to the prescriptive requirements and on where any additions may need to be located, such as a depression to relieve a sore. 
  • The updated user interface features a new image page to capture, import and present multiple images, plus extra display utilities on the alignment and design pages.
  • Orthomodel allows users who purchase a Delcam Iqube scanner to send orders that contain either scan data or the finished design through to range of online labs that can fulfil the manufacture. This allows users to embrace the digital design world without the need for a CNC mill or router.

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times. The company is the world's largest specialist supplier of computer-aided machining software, with its PowerMILL, FeatureCAM, Partmaker and ArtCAM programs making up the most comprehensive range of CAM systems from any developer.

This broad selection allows Delcam to offer a CAM system capable of machining virtually any product, in any material on any type of equipment. Delcam also develops product design, tooling design and quality control programs. The unique Tribrid Modelling approach to design incorporates solid modelling, surface modelling and triangle modelling in a single program, enabling complete design and reverse engineering projects to be undertaken without transferring data between software.

Delcam's Powerinspect offers fast, reliable comparison of parts, prototypes and tooling against CAD data on all types of inspection equipment and even on machine tools. This versatility has made it the world's leading hardware-independent inspection software. Related programs are available for checking machine tool set-up and part location. Delcam software is used in over 80 countries worldwide by around 40,000 organisations, from large multi-nationals to small sub-contractors, in industries including aerospace, automotive, dental, engineering, footwear, medical and toolmaking.
