Lattice3D, TechniCon form partnership
Lattice3D, a supplier of 3D Publishing and Communications solutions, announced a reseller partnership with TechniCon, a provider of online catalog and configuration solutions for manufacturers.
With the agreement, TechniCon will integrate Lattice3D’s XVL technologies and 3D publishing applications into its product offerings to major manufacturing customers. Lattice 3D's XVL technology ultra-compresses 3D data from CAD modeling applications and enables the widespread use of large-scale 3D data in high-fidelity compressed form. It typically provides 1/30 to 1/250 (better than 97%) compression in a loss-less format, which means that large 3D data files become small enough to easily handle on PC systems and can be sent via email or easily used on the Internet without loss of detail or visual fidelity.
“We are very happy to partner with Lattice3D,” said Mark Keenan, CEO TechniCon. “Lattice3D’s technology will allow us to produce 3D solutions faster, at a lower cost versus previous methods, and deliver a better experience to our customers for their parts catalogs and other e-commerce applications.”
Lattice3D is actively recruiting resellers and integrators worldwide to leverage the company’s strategy of “3D Everywhere” into reality. The company recently announced a huge increase in reseller activity across Europe and is also focusing on Continental US resellers and integrators.
“TechniCon is a highly valuable addition to our efforts and we believe that its clients will benefit from the flexibility, cost-reductions and increased efficiencies that XVL delivers,” said Bill Barnes, director worldwide channels, Lattice3D.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
