how to build a personalized element library?

You have created your first insole and now you want to modify an element and add it to your personalized library. This way you can easily add it to your future insoles.

Time to finish: 10 minutes
Required: A 3D scan of a foot
Required: LutraCAD Insole software

Please note that there is also a YouTube video available for this tutorial.

Step 1

To start we have to select a client and create a new file. This can be an existing client or a new client.

After selecting the client, click on new File and start the Insole software.

Select a client and click on new insole

Step 2

Creating a new element is always based on an existing element. Select the element and click on Next. Enter a shoe size, the element will always be scaled to the corresponding shoe size in your future designs. You don't have to design an element per shoe size.

If you want to have a completely different element, please contact LutraCAD support.

Step 3

Position the element on the correct position. If you want to have an element always more forward, you can drag it more to the toes.

Click on Finish on the right top to close the Isolate and show all objects.
