3D Data Collaboration Workflows Greatly Enhanced

November 06, 2007, San Francisco - LATTICE TECHNOLOGY, Inc., developers of the XVL ultra-compressed 3D data format, today announced the release of a groundbreaking new product, XVL Plug-In for Adobe® Acrobat® 3D. The software operates with Acrobat 3D Version 8 to enable easy bi-directional conversion between Adobe PDF and Lattice’s XVL. The plug-in is available for purchase in November.

The lightweight XVL format allows 3D data to be used throughout the product lifecycle. Acrobat 3D Version 8 enables virtually any 3D CAD file to be delivered as a convenient PDF document. The new plug-in by Lattice provides users the convenience of PDF distribution with the power to edit the data in Lattice’s XVL-based applications, wherein users can produce 3D process animations, training manuals, customer documentation, engineering process documents and more.

“The possibilities that this plug-in creates for manufacturers to really be able to communicate, use, and collaborate with 3D data are endless. We are looking forward to seeing what our customers achieve with this tool,” said Bill Barnes, GM, Lattice Technology Inc. “The plug-in is bi-directional, which means data can both export from and import into Acrobat 3D. PDF is one of the communication tools of choice for our users. XVL applications can manipulate and enhance 3D data into animations, combine it with other part data, and create stunning ‘How-to’ documents, which can then be optionally imported back into 3D PDF for easy distribution. This makes for a highly enhanced workflow, greater potential use of 3D data downstream, and improved productivity.”

The new bi-directional translation supports shape, product structure information, color and attributes like part name and designer material. In order to use the new plug-in, Acrobat 3D Version 8 is required.
