Cubify launches 3D printed shoes you can print overnight

News: designer Janne Kyttanen has created a range of 3D-printed shoes for women that can be made at home overnight to be worn the next day.Kyttanen, creative director at printing giant 3D Systems, has created four different styles of wedge shoes that can be made using 3D Systems' CubeX printer.Consumers can download the free digital files for the shoes, select the size they require and print them in a colour of their choice.The project is intended to attract new audiences to 3D printing, which has tended to be dominated by products aimed at men."I don't know what it is with women and shoes, but I like it," said Kyttanen, in a press release straight out of Mad Men. "I would like it even better if my girlfriend could wear a different pair every single day. Today this is a reality. Women can print this first collection of shoes overnight and wake up every morning to a new pair."Each shoe takes upwards of six or seven hours to print, meaning a pair could be produced overnight, assuming two shoes could be printed simultaneously on one printer.The digital files contain data for sizes 35 to 40 and customers can choose between the Macedonia style, which is riddled with holes, the Facet style, Leaf style and plain vanilla Classic style. Further size and customisation options will be added in future.
