An investigation about the latest technology in 3D printing, we have planned to do toe cap for safety shoe. Our paper is to modify the design of the toe cap in steel material, why we modify the design is to increase the strength, stiffness and reduced corrosion. From a finite element analysis and experimental test result of toe cap prototype is taken in software package using Ansys15.0.It was found that the significant influence is to modify the design of steel toe cap. The prototype is printed by ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) material using advance 3D printing machine. By modify the design pattern die amount is decreased by using the advance 3D printing machine. Experimental result of toe cap is to improve the strength of toe cap modify design and reduce corrosion.
