Anark and Lattice Announce Product Integration Partnership to Leverage Adobe 3D PDF Format

Boulder, CO, September 2, 2010: Anark Corporation, a leading provider
of automated 3D CAD transformation and product visualization
solutions, and Lattice Technology, a leading provider of 3D Process
Planning and Digital Manufacturing solutions, today announced their
technology and reseller partnership which includes their intentions
to integrate their product lines and to leverage the Adobe 3D PDF
format as an open and freely viewable data container for 3D design
and manufacturing applications.

This technology and reseller partnership will provide an integrated
3D Process Planning and Work Instruction authoring environment which
utilizes native Adobe 3D PDF as the data delivery format which can be
viewed and interacted with using the Free Adobe Reader.

"It makes perfect sense for Anark and Lattice to join forces at this
time," said Stephen Collins CEO of Anark Corporation. "Lattice is the
leader in generating a low cost, high value process planning and
digital manufacturing solution, while Anark has been leading the
industry in authoring light weight 3D work instructions based on the
open Adobe 3D PDF format. Together we can now offer a complete 3D CAD
to 3D Process Planning to 3D PDF work instruction environment at a
fraction of the cost of the big PLM vendors' equivalent solutions. We
are enabling our customers to create light weight animated work
instructions which do not require proprietary CAD formats or CAD
viewers and are fully deployable using the Free Adobe Reader resident
on over 99% of the world's computers," continued Stephen.

"Lattice is very excited to be joining forces with Anark, the lead
company in transforming heavy 3D CAD assemblies into lightweight and
open 3D PDFs. Through our years of experience with our super light
weight XVL format, we have discovered that the Achilles heel of the
large PLM vendors solutions is the heaviness of the data they
create," said Bill Barnes, General Manager, Lattice Technology, Inc."
For example, when you start with a heavy CAD Assembly and combine it
with heavy manufacturing simulations, the resulting work instructions
are too heavy and too slow to be useable on the shop floor. Now that
we have partnered with Anark our ability to deliver super lightweight
3D PDF work instructions is second to none."
