Expanded 3D CAD file formats
3D CAD exchange file formats
With Lattice3D Studio CAD, you get support for up-to-date native 3D CAD system assembly and part formats, including CATIA, Inventor, PTC Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/ENGINEER), SolidWorks, NX, SolidEdge and more.
Incorporate 3D CAD files from customers, suppliers or part libraries shared as IGES, STEP, JT or other commonly used 3D CAD exchange file format and merge with the internally generated native 3D CAD source data.
Evaluation and measurement tools
Leverage the 3D assembly evaluation and dimension tools for measurements, and use the interference check and collision detection to verify the integrity of the 3D model for technical documentation.
Additional 3D CAD visualization tools
Access more 3D visualization tools, like advanced 3D annotations, and additional tools for component selection, parts modification and control over component structure of complex assemblies.
Animation tool set
Create assembly and maintenance instructions with a full set of animation tools in Lattice3D Studio CAD, including the new capability to animate cross-sections. Explore the advanced process animation tools for complex, multi-step assembly instructions. Use the Disassemble tool to automatically create an animation from an assembled to an exploded view.
Animation editing console
Use key frame animation, as manually editable animation, with controls for modifications, such as moving, rotating, scaling or visibility, to selected parts in a key frame to set or modify transitions between animation phases.
Update assembly functionality
Streamline design modifications with automated capabilities for your technical communication authoring projects. Use the Auto Detection and Update tool to incorporate design modifications applied to the 3D CAD source data to receive updates for all stored information including exported illustrations.
Sophisticated vector illustration
Generate high-quality technical illustrations with advanced settings for thick-thin lining, color-filled parts, hidden line removal, detail level and scale for precise and clearly understandable visualizations.
Leverage 3D CAD engineering data for technical communication and marketing. With high-quality rendering and shading capabilities including textures, lights, shadow mapping and ambient occlusion you can output photo-realistic images for professional photo-editing with Corel PHOTO-PAINT (included with CorelDRAW Technical Suite).
3D publishing and output
Publish to HTML5 for sharing 3D with most devices, or share XVL files for interactive view on iPad and iPhone apps. Publish and read 3D PDF with animations, readable with free PDF reader installed on most desktops and laptops. Lattice3D Studio CAD also supports saving to IGES, STEP, U3D and VRML.
