This demonstration shows how a shoe can be scanned and internal dimensions extracted in the form of a STL file, suitable for CAD programs. Engineers could use this to test their designs and to compare how a new and worn shoe differ, or how different shoes differ in internal geometry, which is where it counts. We had a few requests from shoe manufacturers in the past so we decided to demonstrate the capabilities here. Below are some images of the shoe and its internal cavity. Also below you will find STL files for download.
STL files of shoe and internal cavity:
We have added some basic dimensional measurements, like width, height and inner circumference, see below:
