Lattice Technology offers free trial of XVL Studio Pro software
XVL Studio Pro is the companys industry-leading product for turning 3D design data into 3D manufacturing data. This application is the main XVL authoring tool for performing mathematically correct interference and clearance checks on 3D assembly data, manipulating parts lists, creating process designs, delivering 3D work and assembly instructions and illustrations direct from 3D design data.
Lattice Technology is making its automated Design Review tools easily available for designers and engineers to quickly try out the software for design review activities. Sample data and tutorials also make it easy to discover how automated Design Review can change the way design-to-manufacture processes progress.
It is a well known concept that errors found after design has completed cost 10 times more if located during production engineering, and 100 times more if discovered during manufacturing, said Dr Hiroshi Toriya, CEO of Lattice Technology and author of the new book, Improving Lean Manufacturing Through 3D Data now available from Lattice Technology. XVL Studio Pro allows almost all the design errors to be found far earlier, so they can be quickly resolved. This reduces cost, time and frustration across the entire enterprise.
Our customers indicate that automated Design Review using XVL Studio Pro delivers a leap forward in productivity, not just small steps, said Bill Barnes, GM. Lattice Technology. Customer metrics show that automated Design Review identifies more than double the issues caused by interference and clearance problems, compared to visual review of CAD data, and that they have been able to reduce Design Review time by at least two-thirds. This kind of change is key to better, faster release of products of all kinds.
XVL Studio Pro is available after a quick registration, and both sample and tutorial data is available to allow users to quickly and easily learn how automated Design Review works. New white papers and presentations describing the process are also available free of charge.
