Intro: Laser Cut Shoe
You will need:
Step 1: Laser Cut
Included are the .svg and .ai files for a size 8 shoe.
These can be re-sized to fit different sizes, but we're bad at math, so you're on your own.
Engrave along blue lines, and cut along red lines.
The blue engravings will not be viable in the final assembled piece. These are just guides to assist you in assembly. We used our 90W Full Spectrum Pro 24x16 to get the power to easily cut through this thick material, as well as the bed space to cut the job completely in one go.
Step 2: Stacking
One shoe file consists of 12 pieces and will need a 22"x13" piece of material. The first and last pieces are unlabeled so that the engravings don't appear on the final shoe.
Use the ribbon holes aligning the pieces in numerical order. Use wood glue to adhere each section. While drying, using a clamp is recommended, but not necessary.
Step 3: Ribbon
Lace up and wear.
These shoes are very simple and easy to make. Prefer something 3D printed? Check out our free 3D printed shoe file on Thingiverse.
