The aim is to produce as quickly and an inexpensively as possible, thanks to a new line of advanced digital production that allows the product to be developed from an idea to the prototype to a finished pair of shoes in just a few hours. This is made possible by the connection between design and 3D print, using a state-of-the-art scanner, a completely automated photographic study, cutting plotter and state-of-the-art digital cutting machine for leather skins. The moulds, soles, heels and accessories of existing footwear can be scanned and modified to then subsequently be printed as a new 3D model. At the same time, it is possible to carry out the entire design process digitally, before the various elements are cut and further processed in the finished shoe.

“With the launching of the new digital production line, today we have the possibility of creating our collections in-house and in real time, while also developing special series”, comments Jürgen Cölsch, Managing Partner of CAPRICE.
