Original Press Release:
Lattice Technology Releases XVL Web Master Version 8.1
3D HTML Publishing Tool Delivers More Automation For Creating Interactive Technical Illustrations Across the Web
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Aug 27, 2009 -- Lattice Technology®, developers of digital manufacturing applications using the XVL® format, today announced Version 8.1 of its XVL Web Master application.
XVL Web Master takes 3D design data and publishes it into HTML format for immediate use on an internet or intranet. This powerful tool uses pre-defined templates to allow technical illustrations, parts lists, animations, work instructions and the related 3D data to be rapidly published into HTML. XVL Web Master can be used as a stand-alone application or within an integrated workflow to allow the automated publishing of data within a PLM, ERP or other IT infrastructure.
This latest version of XVL Web Master delivers upgraded tools which allow part descriptions to be extracted from the 3D model and displayed in the HTML pages, directly related to the parts number and the 3D part itself.
The application will now also automatically arrange and display index or part numbers as part of the 3D technical illustration as it processes the 3D data and display process instructions in the HTML page without needing intermediate steps. Users of XVL Web Master 8.1 can also choose additional settings for how animations of the 3D data are displayed including being able to jump to the next animation in a process, play the entire process with the click of a button and automatic display of animation paths for the 3D parts.
"XVL Web Master delivers surprisingly easy ways to deliver 3D manufacturing data on the web, quite literally at the click of a button," said Sebastien Jame, Engineering Services Director, KVAL Inc., a manufacturer of door and woodwork processing machines. "Its use in our company means that we can deliver up-to-date information to both Support and the Shop Floor the minute it is completed by the engineering department."
XVL Web Master Version 8.1 is available to all maintenance customers now, and can be evaluated via registration at Lattice Technology's web site at: www.lattice3d.com
To understand more about the strategies and techniques for using 3D in a digital manufacturing strategy, 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: lattice3d.com/book/index_1.html page.
