Simple But Powerful


Some of the possible uses of an interactive 3D PDF from Lattice Technology:

  • Collaboration inside and outside of your company
  • Shop floor procedures and training
  • Service and repair procedures and training
  • Assembly and disassembly instructions for customers


Using Lattice3D Reporter, it is quick and simple to generate a 3D PDF - no programming or scripting is required.



Two Types of Sample 3D PDFs


Try it yourself - right now.  Because you will most likely already have the free Adobe Reader, all you need is the data file.  


STEP 1: If you don't have Adobe Reader, you will need to download it.


STEP 2: Download and save one or both of the sample PDF files.


It is very important to SAVE the file, not just open it.


STEP 3: Open the Adobe Reader, then open the desired 3D PDF.


STEP 4: Click to ACTIVATE.
