Digital Artisan, a Japanese design lab, JSR Corporation, an international chemicals company, and Castem, a manufacturer of precision casting parts, have collaborated to create “Formless” high heel shoes.

Using the M2 3D printer from Carbon, the partners created 3D printed molds developed from generative design to form the precise casts of the wedged metal heels. Generative design technology also allows for each pair of Formless heels to be tailored to the appropriate shape based on the potential weight and direction of the force applied by its user.

Masaharu - Ono - Director - Digital - Artisan

Masaharu Ono, director of Digital Artisan lead the design and modeling of the Formless heels with 3D software. Ono, an industrial designer of 3D printed jewelry, has previously used his experience in additive manufacturing to create fashion garments made from TPU.

Ono sought help from Japanese shoe designer, Ayato Tsumagari, to develop the Formless heels. Together the creatives used generative design; an iterative design process which automatically generates organic and manufacture-ready outputs based on data inputs.

Process - Webbed - Heels - Support - Weights

This process produced intricate webbed formed heels that support various weights and shoe sizes. These forms were 3D printed into molds using a JSR-owned M2 which operates on patented Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) technology. Using Castem’s Lost Wax Method,...
