Lasting machines for shoe manufacturing are continuously developed with the aid of automation and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM). Although automation and CAM techniques have tremendously reduced the labor in shoe manufacturing field, there still remain some parts manufactured by experts. In order to enhance the capability and efficiency of machines for labor-free shoe manufacturing, CAD data of a shoe last is indispensable. While CAD datarization takes the fundamental role in the shoe design as well as the shoe manufacturing, there has been little research for the CAD datarization of a shoe last. In this paper, a new procedure for CAD datarization of a shoe last using finite element patches is proposed and some data for the control part of the shoe lasting machine are extracted and interpolated from the CAD data. The outer line of a shoe-last sole is interpolated by a tension spline method and bonding lines are extracted from the shoe CAD data. Finally, initial setting data for the lasting machine are extracted from the last CAD data and initial setup parts of the lasting machine.
