Autodesk has launched a new group, Autodesk Footwear, which will focus on supporting designers and manufacturers of all types of footwear and reinforces the design software specialist's commitment to Digital Footwear Creation.
The footwear team has been established following Autodesk’s acquisition of Delcam in February 2014. The ranges of products, previously named Delcam Crispin and Delcam Custom Orthotic Insoles, have been combined under the Autodesk Footwear brand, which brings together both existing software solutions Autodesk’s technologies and services. All staff from the Delcam businesses have been moved into the new group.
As part of its commitment to the current market and to the Future of Making Things, Autodesk Footwear combines solutions for the design and manufacture of production footwear and custom insoles to enable the creation of a complete custom shoe, from last creation, to complex upper and sole design, and to the incorporation of custom insoles.
Chris Lawrie, Director of Autodesk Footwear commented: “The reinforced focus on the footwear industry means greater possibilities for both our existing and new customers. Being able to provide an even wider range of tailored solutions improves the options available to both designers and manufacturers.”
The new group will continue the high level of investment in dedicated products and services for the footwear and insole creation market. By working with Autodesk Footwear, businesses will benefit from a team of developers, sales and support staff who together offer vast industry knowledge and experience in all areas of footwear development.
