The benchmark product for pattern creation and 2D grading


RCS 2D allows you pick up the flattened designs created with RCS 3D, edit the 2D graphic data (pieces), grade the pattern plans in different sizes and widths.

Enabling designers to work these patterns with the highest precision, regardless of the type of shoe model (sport, city, man, woman, boots, etc.), is one of RCS 2D’s outstanding strengths.

More than 250 features tested and approved by our industrial partners make RCS 2D a crucial productivity tool for your engineering department.

Being compatible with the different cutting machines on the market is indispensable, allowing production plants to use any type of machine. RCS 2D also allows you to prepare the stitching chassis and provides an interface with sewing machines.

RCS 2D integrates the entire shoemaker’s know-how and, thanks to the integration of its unique technology, it will allow you to turn development departments into genuine profit centres.



- Exceptional quality of the geometric shapes,
  ensuring excellent quality cutting

- Capitalise on your know-how by creating and
  reusing standard patterns (automatic pattern-
  making; new pattern-making in less than two
  minutes from a house standard)

- Integrated with RCS DM, RCS 2D is an ideal
  editing tool for your BOM


Whatever your technical requirements and budget, there is something in the RCS 2D range for you:

- RCS 2D Entry
- RCS 2D Standard
- RCS 2D Expert
Option : RCS Tools/3D printing


Calculate your material consumption and labour costs 

Indispensable for calculating your raw materials consumption, as well as the operation times (cutting, trimming, finishing, stitching, etc.). The data generated by RCS SL will enable you to calculate the cost
of your models very precisely.
It is the benchmark product for calculating the production costs of your models ahead of their launch.

RCS SL is the perfect tool for your planning and industrialisation departments. As it is compatible via the RCS platform with all the other modules, you can simulate the cost of your models before launching them into production. Control of the target price will thus be carried out automatically.



Precise calculation and powerful

- Fast and automated production of
  calculated surface and length data


- This data will also allow you to calculate
  your labour costs


- Integration with RCS DM. An integral part
  of RCS Cloud, RCS SL is a major
  component of the added value chain
  generated by the planning offices.

RCS 2D and RCS SL are natively integrated into the PDM-RCS DM system. They achieve
their full potential in Cloud mode.


Working in Cloud mode enables you to create your 2D patterns remotely (subcontractors, freelances, off-site factory, etc.) and to calculate your raw material consumption from your European or American offices.

This makes it easier to control your per-model cost objectives without exchanging data via insecure spreadsheets (e.g. Excel) and without tracking changes. Your data becomes unique, reliable and can be shared in real time.
