3D Printing at Brooks Running

High-performance product development teams know the process from design to production is often anything but “happy.” Multiple design iterations within a short product launch timeframe can delay productivity and increase costs. Learn how Brooks Running “runs happy” with 3D printing for design validation, saving them costly, time-consuming outsourcing and project delays.

In this Live Webinar, 3D Printing at Brooks, with Kenny Krotzer, footwear developer at Brooks Running, learn how 3D printing cuts Brooks’ design validation turnaround time in half. Bringing a Stratasys Objet Connex3™ 3D Printer in-house enables their four-step “iteration until perfection” process. Designers at Brooks are able to set up three to four midsole/outsole combinations for overnight 3D printing, allowing them to keep the design cycle going. Perfecting a shoe’s “fit, feel and ride” is achievable with design iteration in as little as seven hours, which helps keep the footwear manufacturer on track.
