On August 19th till 26th, 2023 a workshop on creating shoe design concepts in 2D and 3D format created with the help of various generative AI applications was held at EKA, invited by the Accessory Design Department.

The aim of the course guided by the international Footwearology Lab was to introduce the future of footwear design and manufacturing through the combination of artificial intelligence applications and 3D printing technologies.

The concepts were transferred to an existing 3D model of the shoe, and then the running shoes were printed from recyclable, flexible plastic filament.

In the “Wearable 3D Printed Shoes” workshop, shoe design ideas were completed and finished shoes were printed.
