Lattice Technology delivers XVL-based software solutions that enable manufacturing companies to repurpose 3D CAD data in order to be utilized by functions downstream from product development.
This release provides new features for the manufacturing engineer who is in charge of manufacturing planning and validation. By using XVL, the manufacturing engineer can easily leverage all of the product design data including the 3D CAD models with easy-to-use authoring tools. Validation is possible because XVL maintains CAD-level accuracy. Moreover, critical to the manufacturing planner, even models with thousands of parts and file sizes stretching into multiple gigabytes can be included in a single instance (XVL file sizes are typically 1/100th the size of the CAD files so even modestly configured laptops can accommodate extremely large models). Using XVL Studio, the manufacturing engineer can plan the entire assembly process, step by step. Then the planner can create the manufacturing Bill of Materials (mBOM) from the planned assembly process, which enables an alternative workflow that some users find more logical.
