Optimizing Footwear with FEA Analysis


We’re showcasing what we excel at FEA and performance optimizations.

We’ve harnessed the power of FEA analysis within our computational design workflows, a fact underscored by our recent collaboration with Intact Solutions, Inc. This new venture enables us to implement their state-of-the-art software for Grasshopper in our dual-loop optimization analysis.

Finally, as an innovative material reference, we have used the recently released Carbon EPU 46.

Our journey began with a reviewed version of our previous lattice midsole with 1 [mm] diameter struts, diving headfirst into the challenge. We strategically applied plantar pressure distribution values throughout the entire foot zones. But our innovation didn’t stop there; we launched an optimization task, allowing our designs to progress with adaptable lattice thickness.

And the outcome? A meticulously optimized lattice structure, specifically engineered to balance pressure, providing unmatched comfort and support.

What’s even more impressive is how it smoothly integrated into our existing workflow, presenting the opportunity for tailor-made, optimized lattice structures suited to every design purpose.

Experience the future of individualized comfort, and join us as we step confidently into a new epoch of customized lattice solutions.
