if your website still up or is not any longer, it said it is sleeping?

Sorry about that, the free hosting that I am on unfortunately sleeps for 1 hour every 24 hours. Please try again.

I'm having a problem with Gensole. When I upload a saved insole project zip file, the app only shows me patient name, body weight and which foot. But it doesn't show me the shoe pattern (only the red dots appear, no outline) foot scan or solemorph.

I've tried on Chrome, IE and Firefox. All show the same problem. I'm using Windows 10. Any ideas?

PS: I just noticed one thing. When I click on LEFT in Which Foot option, all data suddenly appear, although it would revert back to RIGHT, which is the correct option I chose in the saved ZIP file.

Hi, please use the contact page on gensole.com. Then I will respond by email and you can email me back the .zip file to test. Thank you.

Gensole is an amazing app. I am currently trying to print my first custom insole. What shell thickness do you recommend and how much infill?

To start with, go for two perimeters, no top or bottom shell and somewhere between 15-25% infill with Filaflex

How are you doing?

So I'd like to try this, I have a 3d scan of my foot, and I've played around with gensole a little bit, but I have some questions.

I used an xbox Kinect 360 to scan my foot with reasonable results, but I'm not certain if there is anything I should be doing specifically during scanning.

What print settings in slicer do you recommend for the base density, top and bottom layers, etc. When I slice it in slic3r using the amf it looks like settings only exist for some areas, not all.


I tried to print the insoles with Ninjaflex. The g-code generated bu slic3r was not playing well with the printer, it doesn't seem to accept certain commands. Also, I'd like to do the FEA for the insoles with different patterns, yet no infill patterns are shown in the stl. file exported. Could you help with these please? Cheers

Hi, the Infill patterns are contained in the AMF not the STL, it is the AMF that you load into Slic3r. Is this what you are doing and still have problems?

Yes, I loaded the AMFinto Slic3r. The infill patterns can be seen in Slic3r and I exported that to both STL and g-code. However, there are no infill patterns in solidworks that I can see.

Of course the infill patterns are not actually modelled but its a property of the slicer and FDM 3D printing that creates these infill densities.

Comments deleted.

Excellent work. Got a sample print of one of the demo insoles completed in ninjaflex. Printed like a champion.

Thank you, please upload a make to help spread the word.

what flexible filament are recommended?
currently i have FlashForgeCP and ESUN FLEX

I only recommend Filaflex, that's not to say that you won't get success with other flexible filaments or failures with Filaflex, YMMV.

ouh i dont have a 3d scan also ,, so its imposible to print this =-="

You can print off the demo insole from this thing and/or download the Gensole Megapack from www.gensole.com where you will find more examples. If you want to do your own foot then unfortunately I cannot make a magic scan from nothing, so you will have to scan your own, sorry.

Please do. Download the .amf for Slic3r and post your results here, I would love to see it.

Awesome! Props to you for this!

  • How does one scan their foot for this process?
  • Is there anyway to customize the wording on the bottom of the insole?

Scanning will become ubiquitous once it is incorporated into smart phones, until then we are limited to to "traditional" 3D scanning.
The wording on the bottom is the name you enter on the first Tab of Gensole.
