Lattice Technology

Repurpose your 3D CAD models from any CAD system


ASA Computers is a Lattice Technology Authorized Partner. Lattice Technology is a leader in technical communications. It's powerful software tools set the standard for technical communication and digital mock-up for the manufacturing enterprise. Using Lattice Technology solutions, engineers and non-engineers alike can easily simulate assembly process and create work instructions or technical illustrations–directly from 3D engineering data. Solutions from Lattice Technology benefit companies who produce products with high part counts, complex geometry, detailed manufacturing processes or any ongoing lifecycle support requirements such as documentation, maintenance, and training.

Target industries range from those developing large products such as airplanes and automobiles to small, complex machinery and medical devices. Founded in 1997, Lattice Technology, Inc. is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and Westminster, CO (near Denver, Broomfield and Boulder), USA.

Leverage Your 3D CAD Models for Technical Communications

Lattice Technology provides solutions that build on top of existing design and engineering technologies so that manufacturers can now seamlessly use, analyze, simulate, animate, create instructions, parts lists and illustrations directly from 3D design data through every part of the design-to-manufacture process.


Lattice Technology solutions use the XVL format to accurately compress 3D data so it can be used on any computer, and yet retain the usability and functionality needed by manufacturers to perform or create the following:

  • Assembly Process Planning
  • Technical Illustrations in 2D and Interactive 3D
  • Assembly and Service Work Instructions
  • Electronic Spare Parts Catalogs and Service Portals


XVL is the industry's most compressed 3D format while retaining the original accuracy of the 3D file. XVL allows companies to see, use and leverage even the largest 3D CAD assemblies with thousands of parts, which CAD platforms cannot easily do. Leveraging your existing 3D CAD, PLM and digital manufacturing process with Lattice Technology solutions delivers higher productivity, much leaner efficiency and the potential for greater profit than ever before.
