Design sketch by Scott Frandsen
I modeled the midsole/outsole in Solidworks. This project improved my surface modeling skills as well as my rendering ability.

Actualizing the design helps me better understand design elements and identify problems with the concept.

Surface Modeling Midsole

Midsole design for a New Balance shoe, modeled in Solidworks and then 3D printed.

Using advanced surface modeling techniques I created the midsole, rendered it (also in Solidworks) and then 3D printed it. I feel that holding an actual prototype reveals secrets of the design that a computer screen can't.
