Summary

Some example insoles to show the usefulness of Filaflex within the Podiatry field.

Sliced in Craftware or Slic3r with zero top and bottom surfaces to give an open core mesh to aid ventilation.

EDIT 10/06/2016 : Create your own insoles with my design software over at http://www.gensole.com

Instructions

Slice with zero top and bottom layers to reveal the open core mesh.

what material do you print with?

I print with Filaflex by Recreus Industries.

How did you print it with so many different colors?
I've only heard of a dual extruder!

I printed it in Recreus new Rainbow Filaflex, only available on April 1st...;-)
This is printed by feeding small lengths of different coloured Filaflex into the extruder.

what size they are?

Did you develop the software?

Indeed, I have software for the purpose of designing and slicing insoles for 3D printing, it is in alpha testing at the moment.

thats great, if you need somebody to test the software we can do this, we have a podiatry clinic.

how do you determine what areas need more and less support? Is that strictly a podiatrist thing or can it be done at home?

I have developed some software to design insoles. It will be available soon.

CraftWare does not want to count with top/botom density on zero.

It will slice if Top/Bottom shell is set to "Parallel Lines"
