RCS 3D Design

La référence pour le développement de chaussures numériques

Creating virtual shoe collections in 3D has become a high value-added step for brands and footwear manufacturers. The return on investment is apparent at all levels of a collection’s development. Reducing time in the development loop exponentially increases creative potential. You can test and approve your creations by making 3D prints.

RCS 3D Design is the benchmark product for digital shoe design allowing you to:

  • Turn your style ideas into a reality by creating accurate scaled 3D digital models which can be shared prior to production

  • Shorten the conception/development cycle from several months to only a few weeks

  • Considerably reduce the number of iterations needed enabling the production of more models of higher quality and in a shorter period of time

  • Increase productivity allowing you to be in step with fashion trends and launch your collections earlier

  • Better manage the design and development process resulting in better product visibility.

Benefits of using RCS 3D
  • Improve your subcontractors’ understanding of your designs leading to a phenomenal reduction in the number of sample iterations required before a prototype is approved

  • Transform your product ideas directly into virtual 3D lasts. These 3D drawings can be worked on, flattened into 2D, made into patterns and graded

  • Creating in-house 3D prints of your virtual models will enable faster approval of your collections. Approval times will fall from weeks to days. The secrets of your collection are therefore kept confidential for as long as possible.

  • Prototype costs fall by more than 70%.

  • 3D virtual models become key tools used by your sales and marketing departments. Presenting the latest trends and virtual collections becomes a strategic communications component in coordination with the catwalk and sales to boutique buyers, and opens up a world of real-time online retailing.

3D Design Modules

Being able to make 3D virtual shoes from 2D images is an essential tool for most designers.

Scan Line is a software program created specifically to work alongside RCS 3D Sketch and RCS 3D Design. Very easy to use, it allows users to create a new model from up to six photographs. RCS Scan Line can also work with hand-drawn sketches or images created with Photoshop and Illustrator and transform them into 3D digital model. Your 3D creations and style lines can therefore be created in seconds.

RCS Scan Line provides you with the tools to help you create, edit, or rapidly improve a digital 3D model from a 2D concept or from
an existing physical model, reducing dramatically the development time for new models.

RCS Scan LINE in action
  • Create 3D drawings of model in seconds

  • Transform 2D images or photos directly into a virtual 3D last

  • Modify 3D model designs and create variants (colours, textures, accessories)


RCS 3D Sketch

Unleash your creativity!


RCS 3D Sketch is an exceptional drawing tool for 3D designers and professional artists in the footwear industry. RCS 3D Sketch utilises a very simple user interface based on quick and intuitive movements. Designers familiar with 2D graphics palettes will quickly feel at home in the RCS 3D Sketch world. Retraining times are therefore significantly reduced.

RCS 3D Sketch is at the forefront of the new generation of 3D user-centred digital design software, putting technology to work to achieve even more realistic designs. It provides users with a vast range of tools and everything needed to rapidly turn models into reality.


RCS 3D Sketch is compatible with a variety of hardware interfaces to complement the designer’s work: tablet screen (eg Wacom Cintiq©), PC, tablet (Microsoft Surface©TM).

RCS 3D Sketch in action
  • Sketch freehand directly on a 3D digital last

  • Copy/paste a 3D sketch from one last to another

  • Create variants, combinations of materials and colours (pantone ©, RGB)

  • Flatten 3D sketches for use by the 2D pattern department

RCS 3D Design

This software program was designed to provide you with an exceptional tool for modelling your 3D virtual models.

All shoe model details can be modelled.


RCS 3D Design allows you to:

  • Rapidly develop your product lines

  • Remove the physical prototype stage and produce samples only for your shows

  • Make optimum use of virtual models by creating highly realistic visualisations across a vast variety of materials and colour combinations

  • Produce a wider range of models for each collection, significantly reducing development time

  • Enable sales and marketing departments to make better use of 3D virtual models

RCS 3D Design in action
  • Rapid assessment of a complete model without the need to manufacture it

  • Optimise style and prototype creation through 3D printers

  • More comprehensive understanding of your designs by subcontractors

In Cloud mode, you can access your designs, drawings and virtual 3D lasts from anywhere in the world. You can now create, modify and generate data related to your models (material, accessories). Due to the fact the system works with a variety of hardware interfaces (PC, Mac, tablet, smartphone) designers can remain in a design environment which is both familiar and connected.
Productivity will soar.
