SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., June 25, 2009 -- Lattice Technology®, developers of digital manufacturing applications using the XVL® format, today announced that it is now an Adobe Solution Partner.

Lattice Technology is integrating its applications with Adobe® Acrobat® 9 Pro Extended software to allow 3D CAD data contained within PDF documents to be quickly and easily enhanced with additional data relevant to downstream processes. This data will, in due course, include inter-related parts lists and BOMs, annotations, process designs and instructions, assembly animations, motion simulations and more. That data can then be saved back into the PDF document for sharing and collaboration across the manufacturing enterprise by anyone with free Adobe Reader® software.

“Lattice Technology’s mission is to make 3D product data relevant and usable to the rest of the manufacturing enterprise,” stated Bill Barnes, GM, Lattice Technology. “We are increasingly seeing manufacturing companies use PDF to share 3D data. By integrating Lattice Technology’s proven Digital Manufacturing solutions with Acrobat 9 Pro Extended, more people in manufacturing can quickly and easily access the right data exactly when they need it. XVL with PDF means this 3D manufacturing data can be shared easily, safely and consistently in the ubiquitous PDF format.”

“Publishing accurate B-rep 3D data to PDF with Acrobat 9 Pro Extended has allowed manufacturers to collaborate easily with anyone, anywhere. Now, with Lattice’s ability to enrich the 3D data within a PDF for use beyond product design, our customers can deliver information that concisely meets the needs of downstream users,” said Greg Baker, senior manager, Manufacturing Strategic Alliances, Adobe Systems Incorporated. “Lattice and Adobe will help customers extend the value of their design data far beyond the CAD and PDM systems. We are excited to have Lattice Technology join the Adobe Solution Partner program.”

Integrated XVL products that support PDF will be announced, and will be available from Lattice Technology and its reseller channel.

Coincidentally, customers can learn more about using 3D to improve lean manufacturing through the new e-book, ‘Improving Lean Manufacturing Through 3D Data’ by Dr. Hiroshi Toriya, available as a free download. 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: www.lattice3d.com
