Delcam Crispin is set to show the latest versions of its design and manufacturing software for the footwear industry at seminars in China and Vietnam during September.

The events will take place in Dongguan City, China, on 3 September, and in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on 10 September.

Both seminars will feature previews of the latest release of the Shoecost footwear costing software and demonstrations of the new Shoecloud project management system and the Shoemaker 3D design software.

Key features and enhancements

Shoecost

  • The 2014 version of the software enables the improved prediction and management of the cost of footwear manufacture.
  • The software offers a more intuitive interface and integrates more closely with other Delcam Crispin CADCAM packages to streamline the design and manufacturing process.
  • Shoecost 2014 provides a clear breakdown of all the costs involved in footwear manufacture, making it easy to compare the actual cost of the shoe with the target cost.
  • A key feature of Shoecost 2014 is its flexible approach to reporting — its interface is fully customisable, enabling users to choose which tools to display and where to locate them on the screen.

Shoecloud

  • The Shoecloud project management and collaboration software enables the more efficient management of design and manufacturing data throughout the development of new shoe designs, either within a single company or along a supply chain.
  • It is designed to make decision making more productive by giving the right information to the right people at the right time. 
  • Shoecloud can be integrated within the Crispin range of software for 3D footwear design and manufacture. Alternatively, Shoecloud data can be accessed through standard web browsers and email.

Shoemaker

  • The Shoemaker CAD software for 3D footwear design integrates the design of both uppers and soles in 3D, thus allowing the complete shoe to be developed and visualised simultaneously.
  • The software is said to be of particular benefit to companies making sports shoes and other designs with complex soles.
