RCS 3D LAST 2020
The last is the story of a ‘container’ and its ‘contents’, of ‘footwear’ and the ‘shoe’.
Shoes and lasts have always been subject to the constant whims of fashion. Across the ages, lasts
testify to all manner of classic and eccentric footwear trends. Preciously guarded, they embody
the signature of each shoe brand. It is this ensemble that allows the manufacturer to combine
attractiveness and comfort, regardless of the model, trend and season.
In the footwear industry, everything starts with the last. Whether it is the shoe’s fit, style or performance,
or the lack of one of these criteria, this can usually be traced back to the last.
The sole of the last guides the creation of the midsole, the heel and all corresponding tooling.
From the body of the last, we get the fit, the silhouette, style and pattern lines.
RCS 3D LAST
RCS 3D Last offers its users a rapid and powerful tool to create their lasts in 3D. With more than 200 features, RCS 3D Last offers you the opportunity to make a limitless number of changes and
to transform and grade your lasts. Specialised features such as copying and pasting the toe,
the boot top or the sole, as well as coordination features are available.
RCS 3D Last is the 3D software to create your lasts. All changes are made in 3D in order to obtain optimum accuracy. You can achieve all types of grading by applying different rules and constraints such
as: coordinating the heel and/or the toe, specific grading for a boot, etc.
- Creation and modification of parametric
- Ultra high-performance 3D grading
Optimum accuracy is assured. Several
adjustment parameters are available.
- Compatible with all 3D digitisers on the
- Generates cutting files for lasts for all shapes
RCS SCAN LINE
RCS Scan Line is software designed to work with RCS 3D Last. Very easy to use, the program allows users to create a new last from a photo of a shoe model, a hand drawing, or an image created in Photoshop©™ or equivalent.
Scan Line allows you to reduce the development time of a last or to modify an existing last. It therefore allows you to create basic lasts very early on in your artistic development (before your last-maker provides you with the definitive one), onto which you can build your future collections. Falling behind schedule will be a thing of the past.
You can use RCS Scan Line to :
- Rapidly produce a new last
- Reshape the last structure
- Modify the bottom
