Delcam Crispin has expanded its range of design and manufacturing software for the footwear industry. The new version will be launched in North American at the WSA show in Las Vegas, NV February 8-11th.

Delcam is the only company able to provide a complete solution for the design and manufacture of both uppers and soles. With Delcam Crispin's new features the company expects to increase its dominance of the sector even more.

The newest product in the Crispin line is TechPac – a new 2D product to generate technical packages for footwear designers to supply to their manufacturing partners. TechPac allows designers to specify the manufacturing processes to be used and the sequences of operations to be followed at all stages of the production of the shoe.

It will help ensure that the design is produced exactly as specified and to the required delivery schedules are met. The system is supplied with pre-defined templates to specify the flow of manufacturing data. These templates can be modified by the user to cover any specific requirements. 2D part geometry, models and images can be imported into the documentation from the range of Delcam Crispin design software.

TechPac incorporates basic 2D engineering functionality from Delcam Crispin Engineer, plus comprehensive text functionality, with formatting options including font, color and scale, so that manufacturing companies can mark up the documents with any comments or queries on the suggested processes. For example, reference lines can be added onto the parts for operations like stitching, skiving and folding, together with images and text on the type of machine to be used. All of the documents can be provided as pdf or HTML reports so making it easy for everyone involved in the project to exchange data electronically.

The most important new update in design is the latest release of the 3D upper design module, ShoeDesign. ShoeDesign provides a comprehensive range of options to develop new designs, either based on an existing last or when creating a completely novel product.

The software comes with a wide range of materials, textures and colors, while features like stitching, padding, eyelets and laces, can all be included to complete the design. The main focus of the new version has been on improving the ease of use, so making the software simpler for new users to learn and faster for experienced operators to use. The interface has been revised so reducing the number of icons on the screen at any one time. In addition, the cursor action has been improved to speed up drawing of style lines and selection of menus and icons. Handling of textures has also been improved. It has been made easier to edit existing textures, and to drag and drop textures from a texture library onto the various panels of the upper.

The new version of the LastMaker software for last design has also been made easier to use, both for the creation of standard lasts and for the development of customized designs. Improved creation and editing tools for cross sections have been added to allow more specific adjustment to the overall design. Similarly, profile line editing has been enhanced to make it easier to modify the outline shape of the last.
