Lattice Technology Releases Updated XVL System Toolkit Applications

PLM, PDM and ERP Integration Tools Now Support XVL v10, the Latest, Most Compressed 3D Data Format


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., August 4, 2009
-- Lattice Technology®, developers of digital manufacturing applications using the XVL® format, today announced that it has released updates to its applications that comprise the XVL System Toolkit. With updates to XVL Filter, XVL Reducer and XVL Processor, manufacturers can now handle XVL v10 files easily and quickly within their integrated manufacturing IT infrastructures.

XVL System Toolkit empowers a manufacturing operation to turn enterprise-wide 3D data into a competitive advantage and extend best practices with 3D across an entire manufacturing supply chain. XVL System Toolkit delivers the tools to quickly and easily integrate automated processing of 3D CAD data into XVL across an integrated PLM, PDM or ERP system. With these tools, 3D data can be automatically processed and delivered in many different forms including, but not limited to, interactive work instructions, 3D parts lists and BOMs, assembly animations, and 2D illustrations direct from 3D. XVL applications sit within the automated system to provide all these outputs as well as advanced Digital Mock Up (DMU) and Design Review tools.

XVL System toolkit comprises 3 products that work automatically within manufacturing IT systems when 3D CAD data is checked in:

XVL Filter manages the handling of 3D data into various predefined forms, for example, combining multiple 3D files into one XVL file and vice versa. This tool also manages creation of updated assembly instructions and technical illustrations in standard document formats, addition of security to files, and more.

XVL Processor automatically handles manipulation of external, non-CAD data such as .CSV data and integrates it with the 3D XVL data based on predefined settings. The application also manages automated creation of interference and clearance check reports on 3D CAD data.

XVL Reducer automatically removes predefined geometry elements from 3D XVL data that is regarded as proprietary or unnecessary, can remove 3D that is hidden behind other surfaces, aggregates faces and edges to reduce file size, and more. The overall result is to deliver XVL data that is even smaller in file size and that does not reveal proprietary data to unauthorized teams, suppliers or other participants.

XVL System Toolkit is compatible with ERP and PLM systems including: Windchill®, Teamcenter®, ENOVIA®, DELMIA®, SmarTeam® and SAP®.

This latest version of XVL System Toolkit supports the new XVL v10 format, which delivers the industry’s most compressed 3D format with no loss of accuracy. XVL v10 can compress 3D CAD data to 0.5% of its original size for both surface and polygon data, allowing anyone in the manufacturing supply chain to quickly view and understand even the most complex 3D CAD data, even on a low specification PC.

To understand more about the strategies and techniques for using 3D in integrated manufacturing infrastructures, Lattice Technology recently released a free downloadable e-book, ‘Improving Lean Manufacturing Through 3D Data’ by Dr. Hiroshi Toriya. The book delivers a series of case studies, survey data and information that help manufacturers understand how to take 3D out of the design stage and make it relevant to a lean manufacturing strategy. This book is available at Lattice Technology’s web site at: http://www.lattice3d.com/book/index_1.html
