what we do
VOXEL8 getS FOOTWEAR brands closer to the customer.
Introducing a digital manufacturing systems that revolutionizes how footwear and athletic apparel are designed, manufactured, and delivered to consumers.
ActiveMix™ technology enables printing of reactive polyurethanes with gradient composition, structure, and mechanical properties.
On-the-fly material property control allows designers to access a huge class of polyurethanes and change between property extremes.
SPEED to market
Develop and produce your products faster so that you can better react to market trends and respond to consumer demand.
Our digital manufacturing systems enable short design and production cycles for both custom-release and large-scale production runs.
Transition your current multi-step, manual prototyping and manufacturing processes to a fully automated digital process .
Our manufacturing systems utilize zero tooling, decreasing set-up costs and dramatically accelerating the time to market.
Our manufacturing platform is compact, flexible and scalable, enabling localized production and distribution to minimize warehouse and shipping costs.
Our platform enables rapid response to emerging trends & customer demand through its customized design software, materials, and digital manufacturing systems.
Our full production pipeline will enable mass customized manufacturing at scale, allowing batch sizes as small as 1.
ActiveMix™ technology is combined with inkjet capabilities to create high-resolution graphics on functional features.
Voxel8’s engineering-grade polyurethanes are printed using our ActiveMix™ system, which enables programmable control of composition, geometry, and mechanical properties of printed features on uppers (& other textiles) and 3D shapes (e.g., midsoles & outsoles).
We are revolutionizing the footwear and apparel industries by bringing digital design and manufacturing closer to the customer.
Voxel8 was founded in the summer of 2014 by a interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers from Harvard University. With $14M in capital raised, we are backed by Braemar Energy Ventures and ARCH Venture Partners.
Our team is developing digital footwear manufacturing systems which revolutionize how footwear products are designed, manufactured, and sold to consumers.
