What is Mind Shoe Design?

It’s a simple and easy-to-use tool, thinking about free hand design, which makes the 3D shoe design process faster and more intuitive to develop, improving the creativity of those who use it.

Mind Shoe Design also accepts the use of already structured drawings, in vector image editing software, such as Adobe Illustrator.

Mind’s new software features an interface, with a double work area – a 2D and 3D representation of the model – which allows a quick and precise adjustment of the lines that make up the models. The design result can be exported and incorporated into MindCAD 3D or MindCAD 2D, for a better technical construction and modeling results.
