Lattice3D Reporter with the Template Option delivers unprecedented automation advantages into spreadsheets at a single click of a button. By using pre-defined templates, you can create print-ready and digital reports, parts lists, work instructions and more directly from XVL or 3D CAD data into an Excel spreadsheet — with almost no human interaction required. Because this feature fits directly into a workflow, all stakeholders in a product manufacturing process have the right information as soon as it is released or updated by the design departments.
Deliver accurate work instructions and reports as soon as design data is released. Downstream users can immediately prepare, train and operate with the right documents and data. When your engineering data is updated and released, Lattice3D Reporter can use the new data to automatically update the previously created spreadsheets.
Lattice3D Reporter works inside Microsoft Excel and saves your reports in the ubiquitous spreadsheet format of Excel with the standard “.xls” extension. The document includes all the XVL data and works on any Excel application.
All 3D graphics load quickly from the lightweight XVL format. This capability allows you to locate a part on a list visually, rather than trying to remember long numeric IDs. The embedded viewer also includes smaller thumbnail options or “snapshots” with each part entry, allowing you to include alternate perspectives, assembly relationships, or animated instructions.
Lattice3D Reporter can easily work within existing ERP, PLM and other IT infrastructures, allowing data from many sources to be rapidly used and integrated. Data may include BOMs and lists from ERP alongside 3D CAD data from engineering.
