Lattice3D Announces New Version of Advanced Authoring for Technical Communications and Digital Mock-Up

New Version of Lattice3D Studio Brings Many Usability Enhancements for Technical Illustrations, Support of Windows 10 and New CAD Formats

Lattice Technology, Inc., an industry leader of digital mock-up and technical communication solutions for the manufacturing industry, today announced Lattice3D Studio version 14. This latest release of the company's XVL authoring tool contains features that improve productivity and increase functionality for companies that design their products using any of the mainstream 3D CAD solutions including CATIA, Inventor, Pro/ENGINEER (Creo), Solid Edge, SOLIDWORKS, NX and other popular 3D CAD systems.

Lattice Technology delivers solutions that build on top of an organization's existing 3D design data, allowing companies to leverage 3D CAD model data beyond engineering to all segments of the product lifecycle. Manufacturing and engineering companies use the innovative technology as the backbone for repurposing 3D model data across the extended enterprise. Common uses include assembly process planning (using digital mock-up), work instructions, technical illustrations, design reviews, electronic spare part catalogs and service portals. To simplify and streamline updates when engineering changes occur, associativity to the native CAD model is retained.
"Our mission is to enable companies to leverage their 3D models from any CAD system throughout their extended organization. These purposes may include digital mock-up of their assembly process for planning, in-house documentation for assembly or end-user manuals and service procedure documentation," said Koichi Kobayashi Vice President Lattice Technology Inc. "With this release, we continue to enhance our industry-leading solutions that give manufacturing companies the capability to repurpose the largest of models for planning and technical documentation purposes."
The most significant features of Lattice3D Studio version 14 include advances in:
Design Review—Eliminates false positives using expected interferences with both static and dynamic interference analysis.
Usability—Improved element selection and highlighting of selectable elements
Technical Illustration—Adds Anchor Lines feature to align callouts quickly and easily
Support—Adds support for Windows 10 and latest 3D CAD releases for CATIA, Inventor, Solid Edge, and SOLIDWORKS
About Lattice Technology, Inc.
Lattice Technology's powerful software tools set the standard for technical communication for the manufacturing enterprise. Using Lattice Technology solutions, engineers and non-engineers alike can easily simulate assembly processes and create work instructions or technical illustrations—directly from 3D engineering data. Solutions from Lattice Technology benefit companies who produce products with high part counts, complex geometry, detailed manufacturing processes or any ongoing lifecycle support requirements such as documentation, maintenance, and training. Target industries range from those developing large products such as airplanes and automobiles to small, complex machinery and medical devices.

EXAIR Corporation - CE Compliant Cold Gun

EXAIR Corporation - CE Compliant Cold Gun

In addition to producing a cold, quiet stream of air to reduce heat buildup on machining operations, EXAIR's Cold Gun Aircoolant System™ has also met the rigorous safety, health, and environmental standards of the European Union in order to attain the CE mark. The Cold Gun is a low cost alternative to expensive mist systems. It eliminates the ongoing costs associated with the purchase, filtration and disposal of liquid coolants. In addition, there are no worker related health problems resulting from breathing airborne coolants or slipping on wet shop floors. The Cold Gun Aircoolant System incorporates a stainless steel vortex tube to convert an ordinary supply of compressed air into a cold 20°F (-7°C) air stream at one end and a hot exhaust at the other. There are no moving parts to wear out. The Cold Gun now features an improved muffler on the hot air exhaust to reduce the noise level to a quiet 70 dBA.
