Marketing Text The 3D Footwear Computer Aided Design Handbook consist in 4 volumes with a total of 1086 pages which are graphically designed and developed in an effective educational approach to modules and units of learning outcomes: Knowledge, Skills and Competences.
Module I - Footwear CAD Using Icad3d+ software. This module provides a basic understanding of utilizing the Icad3D+ software. Hands- on exercises throughout the units demonstrate techniques that can be applied to the Footwear Design. The primary objective of this module is to provide students with a thorough understanding of all the steps in 3D designing processes as well as skills and competencies necessary for creating accurate virtual prototypes by using the Icad3D+ software.
Module II - 3D CAD - Applications to basic footwear constructions. This module introduces practical lessons which are based on the learning outcomes accumulated by students/trainees in Module I. Each lesson is designed as a tutorial which covers the 3D modelling steps and the necessary Icad3D+ tools for completing basic models for women’s, men’s and children’s footwear by: processing the lasts, designing the 3D model lines, transferring and controlling 3D lines with 2D drawings, creating pieces, adding texture, stitches and accessories, modelling the 3D shape of sole and heel, rendering.
Module III- 3D CAD -Applications to orthopedic footwear This module explores how to select lasts and to design footwear for specific foot pathologies. It contains theoretical lessons that help the student/trainee to perform practical activities with Icad3d+software, such as: to choose lasts for specific pathologies applying knowledge of these pathologies, to apply the knowledge of design requirements for specific foot pathologies, to modify a footwear collection, applying the orthopaedic modifications and combinations of modifications to sole and heels for the specific cases presented in theoretical lessons.
Module IV- 3D CAD- Applications to fashionable footwear . This module is dedicated to professionals with special interest for fashionable footwear. Its main goal is to acquire comprehensive knowledge of all aspects surrounding the launch of footwear collections from idea to production.
Target group Teachers, Tutors, Trainers, Experts in VET, trainees, VET students
Result This result is one of the main results of the project. It supports the 3rd objective of the project by developing new training contents and supportive tools for e-learning based on units of learning outcomes and competencies and the 4th objective by creating the training content included in the Online Learning Platform. The training content was tested on target group in order to develop skills and competencies in 3D footwear computer aided design (objective 2). The entire content transfers an innovative software product (Icad3d+) in partner countries (objective 1).
Area of application Technical and vocational education, Higher education, Manufacturing of leather and related products
