| Product Overview
ShoeExpress is a set of dynamic
process orientated tools – fully integrated into
CimatronE’s powerful CAD/CAM package – specifically
tailored for the footwear industry. ShoeExpress offers
solutions, from data input through to fully hybrid (points,STL,wireframe,Solid)
grading. These tools have been developed based upon many
years of accumulated experience in the field.
| Product Highlights
- Rich set of tools for the
footware industry; including wrapping
curves and surfaces to surfaces.

grading; supporting hybrid models, fixed areas,
free-form zone definition
- Revolutionary model
morphing; take an exiting hybrid model from one
sole profile to another.
- Dedicated application
tools bridging the gap between the designer and

mold casting industry; including support for
| Key Benefits
- Drastic reduction in time
between concept and final product.
- Process tools that capture
many years experience in the field.
- Support for hybrid modeling
- Fully defined 3D model reduces
down stream processing errors
- 3D digital model eliminates
the need for a physical model for concept sharing,
design reviews etc
- 100% match between model and
ShoeExpress is composed of four
modules covering the entire footwear creation process:
- ShoeExpress Design:
- Generate curves and points
quickly from digitized data
- Trace curves over bitmaps
- Wrap curves and surfaces
- Unfold surfaces
- Automatic creation and
dynamic modification of the side surfaces
- Dynamic generation of
under surfaces for anatomic parts, with real time
display of the result.
- Fast and easy creation of
geometric entities for sole cut-outs ready for
down-stream NC processing using NC templates.
- 3D shoe grading for hybrid
models (points, curves, surfaces, solids and STL
- Scaling parameters are
defined by user defined zones.
- Fixed area management for
logos, insets, air-bags etc.
- Multiple sizes generated
by one grading operation.
- ShoeExpress Sole Morphing:
- Morph an existing 3D shoe
hybrid model (points, curves, surfaces, solids and
STL objects) from one shoe profile to another.
- Fixed areas management
- ShoeExpress Heel Design:
- Creation of the 3D heel
from 2D or 3D curves
- Dynamic modification and
management of curves and surfaces
- 3D grading; table driven
control over every grading parameter.
- Automatic creation of
geometric entities for the heel tip mold ready for
down-stream NC processing.
- ShoeExpress Casting:
- Automatic identification
- Automatic creation of
geometric entities for cover and mold ready for
down-stream NC processing using CimatronE’s powerful
- Management of several
covers for multi-color molds.
- Re- application of the
process to different models (geometric templ
