What innovations does 3D printing bring to the shoemaking industry?
At the time that 3D printing sneakers have attracted the attention of domestic and foreign manufacturers, many people in the industry began to think calmly about the changes that 3D printing technology has brought to the shoemaking industry. What are the advantages of using 3D printing technology compared with traditional manufacturing technology for sneakers? What impact does 3D printing technology have on the whole shoemaking industry?
Firstly, the use of 3D printing technology can effectively shorten the product development cycle, and further verify the feasibility of the designer's creativity. In the traditional way of shoe product design, the sample of shoe mould usually uses tools such as drills, lathes, moulding machines and so on. The manufacturing process is time-consuming and laborious. After using 3D printing technology, the shoe pattern design drawings can be converted into models by computer, which overcomes the limitations of traditional technology and better reflects the designer's creativity.
Secondly, the use of 3D printing technology shoemaking efficiency, flexibility. The use of 3D printing technology allows designers to freely release their ideas without structural constraints. At the same time, 3D printing technology provides convenience for designers to modify design schemes in time, and reduces the cost of pre-production due to die remanufacturing.
Finally, the use of 3D printing technology is expected to meet the needs of different consumers for customized shoes. Generally speaking, the price of customized shoes is much higher than that of ordinary shoes due to cost factors such as process, raw materials, research and development. 3D printing technology can reduce the production cost of shoemaking enterprises to the greatest extent by shortening the research and development cycle, reducing the cost of molds and improving the utilization rate of materials.
A New Round of Technological Change of 3D Printing Sports Shoes Opens Immediately
At present, most consumers in China have limited understanding of 3D printing sports shoes, as if 3D printing sports shoes are still far away. After all, the price of 3-D printed sneakers is much higher than that of ordinary sneakers. In addition to fashion-chasing consumers, most consumers will be more willing to buy sneakers that meet their consumption ability.
In the final analysis, if 3D print sneakers want to stand out in the footwear market, they still need to improve the quality of products. Whether it is the appearance design or the built-in function, only by truly embodying the unique advantages and practical functions of 3D print sports shoes, can consumers truly recognize the value of 3D print sports shoes, and purchase 3D print sports shoes.
In the changeable market competition environment, with the change of consumer demand, footwear manufacturers should also change their development ideas. In the future, driven by the trend of intellectualization and individualization, garment shoes and hats manufacturing industry will enter a new round of industrial restructuring period. Only when enterprises actively understand the needs of consumers, can they accurately position themselves and obtain more lucrative benefits.
In addition, in order to compete for a limited market share, the competition among clothing, footwear and hats manufacturers will become more intense, which will bring pressure to the survival of enterprises, and at the same time, will strongly promote a new round of technological change. In this process, the value of cutting-edge technologies such as 3D printing will be fully highlighted.
