4D ShoeTech is set to launch its digital online platform based on next-generation technologies to act as a collaborative workspace for designers, developers and any partners or team members they work with. Founded in 2017, 4D ShoeTech is a leading tech company providing end-to-end digital design and development solutions for the footwear industry.

On this web-based platform, the designer, manufacturer, sales rep, or buyer may select a particular shoe and drop and drag available swatches and colour ways, once again saving on sampling costs. With remote working the new norm in today’s climate, and sales trade shows on indefinite hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual showrooms are the evolution of traditional wholesale channels. By applying 4D ShoeTech technology, a designer or sales rep will be able to easily create digital line sheets and online virtual sales showroom to exhibit their collections to global buyers with the click of a button, the company said in a press release.

With the understanding that photo realistic 3D digitalisation is another dimension, a 4D ShoeTech digital sample is neither flat nor static as a traditional .JPEG or .PNG image reads. The viewer can visually feel the full texture of the product, as it has the ability to move or spin like in a motion capture or animation, making the appearance of the product incredibly life like and practically jumping out of the screen, creating a true 4D effect.

The 4D ShoeTech suite of digital solutions includes photorealistic 3D CAD modelling. One can digitally create individual elements of a shoe build including heels, outsoles, bottoms, lasts, and mould-making components, and then sample the product as a precise and photo realistic 4D digital sample.

With platform-neutral 3D material swatch scanning or 3D material appearance capturing service using X-Rite Pantone TAC7 technology, one can get precise photo realistic material capture, showcasing the most intricate textile or material detail from fur, embroidery and embossed leather to metallic, glitter, iridescent, and rhinestone. Tiling and seamless pattern creation can also be implemented, using advanced computer vision and AI technologies and resolving the issue of exact pattern creation.

With rigid or flexible material 3D printer-enabled prototyping, one can get 3D print and prototype heels, outsoles, bottoms, lasts, components, accessories and mould-making components, saving a highly significant amount of time and money from the traditional method.
