search for suitable software 3D

Goodmorning everyone,
I started this week to look out into this world and I need a lot of clarification on how to proceed.
My project is to create the shapes for the construction of shoes, to do this I thought of buying a 3D scanner (HP Z 3D camera) with which I would create my database of shapes, then I would have to modify them by removing or adding a few millimeters to be able to adapt it to the shoe I want to create. The next step would be to be able to scan the foot and be able to superimpose it on the shape so as to modify it according to the customer.
An interesting software that I found is Meshmixer, but as it was presented to me I have the doubt that I need another software upstream.
The thing is, I don't know what is really needed for my project as I have no practical knowledge of 3D printers, so I have no idea what tools I need to complete it.

I hope I have explained my situation well, below you will see how the product I want to create is made. Thank you in advance for your attention

Mesh mixer is the most common one used.

Meshmixer will probably do what you have outlined.  I would expect to map the fit to a constrained foot rather than a barefoot scan, you might find scanning the customer wearing tight socks gives a better fit.

heerio,

I don't want to dissuade you, however from the sound of it you have no experience in these matters, and if you are doing this professionally you should seek to hire someone who does, or you may have a painful learning experience.

 

However if you are doing this for personal adventure and the pursuit of knowledge you may in a few short years gain the experience needed to proceed with this endeavor.

 

Good Luck

A crazy notion is to pick up a 3D modeling tool like Poser or Daz3d - they have many different male and female human models you can scale, deform, and then convert to objects for printing. Not turn key easy - but it works rather well once you learn the workflow. Here's a pair of low poly feet as an example. And yes, toes are even posable.

@swiss_cheese

this is the second situation you described, since I can't find the job I want to do, I invent it to grow.
thank you very much for your good wishes

If your looking for powerful free modeling software I will point you in the direction of Blender.org

Their will be a learning curve but it will be worth it.

 

Enjoy

Blender is good but it does have a steep learning curve.  A different curve than Fusion 360.

Well at this point in life, having quite a few 3d software's under my belt I can tell you that once you learn one you can more easily learn the others, each software has good and bad points from a feature standpoint. one may be better suited for organic modeling and one better suited for solid surface, each of the two mentioned are capable. pick one and learn it through and through and move on to the next if needed.
