Unleash the Power of 3D Modelling in Microsoft Excel & 3D PDFs with Lattice3D Reporter

Welcome to a new age of seamless 3D document interaction that enriches communication within and beyond your manufacturing corporation.

Efficient knowledge exchange is a game-changer for manufacturing companies, enabling them to optimize their operations, minimize expenses, and deliver unrivalled product quality. As the pace of today's world continually increases, manufacturers require state-of-the-art tools for instant analysis, visualization, and communication of intricate product data to all relevant parties.

Enter Lattice3D Reporter. This revolutionary software facilitates 3D product data sharing through Microsoft Excel and 3D PDFs, presenting a unique opportunity for manufacturing firms to streamline their 3D product data dissemination. What's more, the Excel spreadsheets and 3D PDFs crafted via Lattice3D Reporter are accessible at no cost to any data consumer, furthering the Digital Transformation vision by simplifying and democratizing the sharing of 3D product data.

Lattice3D Reporter now presents several new features and updates.

Expanding the Frontiers of Interactive 3D CAD Product Data Sharing via Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets and 3D PDFs

Experience the Lattice3D Reporter plug-in for Microsoft Excel, your new companion for integrating 3D XVL models into Excel worksheets. Recipients can freely navigate and explore the 3D model within the worksheet itself, while the plug-in empowers you to formulate images, lists, and other elements directly from your indigenous 3D CAD data. You can also introduce eBOMs, mBOMS, and process lists into your worksheet. The plugin weaves together 3D models, BOMs, and images for an interactive 3D technical documentation like never before.

The magic doesn't stop there; the same interlinked information can be converted into 3D PDFs using the identical Excel plugin. For those new to the realm of 3D PDFs, you'll be pleased to know that the standard Adobe PDF reader allows you to delve into these models in 3D.

With Lattice3D Reporter, generating engaging, interactive 2D and 3D documents straight from your 3D CAD data is a breeze.


Immersive 3D Snapshots

Welcome to 3D Snapshots: interactive 3D representations that encapsulate specific views of a 3D model, complete with geometry, textures, annotations, metadata, and properties. These tools offer comprehensive 3D browsing capabilities and are useful for producing technical documentation, presentations, and other visual content.

Lattice's XVL Studio software permits users to manipulate and annotate 3D models before capturing a snapshot, ready to be integrated into Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and 3D PDFs via Lattice3D Reporter.


Effortless Document Creation with Templates

Automate your technical document creation, such as bills of materials, design issue reports, and work instructions, with Lattice3D Reporter Template Option.

Further enhancements include:

  • High-resolution images
  • Improved light reflections
  • Wire harnesses in the assembly tree
  • Cross-sections
