    I am not sure if what I am offering will help to minimise the cost of Orthotics/Insoles. I have learned to draw for 3D printing using Autodesk Fusion 360. Do you know you can now 3D print objects in flexible rubber? Shapeways and imaterialise offer 3D printing services. You don't need to own a 3D printer any longer.

    I like help a couple of you who want to take a chance with me. I will try and design an Orthotic/Insoles in 3D based on the snapshot of your insole from the top and a snaphot of your foot from the side. I need to know the measurement length and width of the insole. This is necessary for me to draw in the near exact scale of 1:1 .

    Once I am done with the 3D drawing I shall send you the file for 3D printing. You can use the file to 3D print as many Orthotics/Insoles as you like and can afford.

    This will be my first attempt doing Orthotics/Insoles in 3D. So how much will it cost the couple of you. Nothing! It is a chance you we take. If you are interested PM me. There is no guarantee. I don't really know how much help this will really be. AllI hope is for the cost of Orthotics/Insoles comes reasonable.

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
