Redefining shoe design with 3D workflow

After more than a century in the business and a history of turning out the best performing running shoes in the world, it would be an understatement to say the design standards at Brooks Running Company are quite high.

Using Modo®, the company can now create high-end 3D representations of its shoes, starting with the function and wrapping the aesthetics around it in a way it previously could never do.

Nick Martushev, global tooling Manager/3D innovations engineer and Indra Gunasekara, senior footwear designer discuss how the shift from 2D to 3D enables them to push the boundaries of design, maintain their company’s impeccable reputation and save time, money and resources in the process.

Using 3D modeling software like Modo really allowed us to build and visualize 3D models ... it really saved us a lot of time, money and effort.
