Simplify 3D communication with 3D CAD add-on

Take a complex technical illustration concept and transform it into manageable results with the Lattice3D Studio CAD add-on available for CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017. This powerful software goes far beyond traditional 3D file support, including 3D PDF capabilities.

Start with an initial 3D design as the source file for your technical communication needs, then use an automated process to implement any design changes made to the original 3D file engineering data. All 3D CAD data created by your design team can also be repurposed for a variety of technical communication needs. As a result, you can increase the ROI potential of your company's 3D CAD investment.

Lattice3D Studio CAD Corel Edition provides critical functionality and added benefits that are not offered with the basic Lattice3D Studio software that is included with CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017.



Make the most of your 3D CAD data with industry-standard support, sharing and output. Lattice3D Studio CAD supports native 3D assembly formats, including CATIA, Inventor, PTC Creo, SolidWorks, NX, SolidEdge and 3D CAD exchange file formats such as IGES, STEP, JT and others.



Leverage the versatility of Lattice3D Studio CAD to work with assembly, disassembly, spare parts or manufacturing BOMs effectively. Utilize the 3D CAD data to generate illustrated assembly and maintenance instructions. Generate detailed step-by-step instructions as process animations using a full set of 3D animation tools.

Jump in with CorelDRAW's graphics software


Use the Auto Detection and Update function to automatically implement changes originating from Engineering design. With the automated 3D CAD to illustration functionality, the modifications made to the 3D CAD source files will instantly be applied as part of the update process.



Send 3D views as high-quality vector illustrations, create high-res and photo-realistic shaded renderings from 3D or output projects to various 3D file formats, including IGES, STL, U3D and VRML, and publish to 3D PDF.

Expand your 3D visualization capabilities with the critical add-on

    Get support for native 3D CAD system assembly and part formats, including CATIA, Inventor, PTC Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/ENGINEER), SolidWorks, NX, SolidEdge and more. See full list of supported file formats.

  • ENHANCEDAdditional 3D CAD visualization tools

    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.

  • Multiple vector illustration output

    Streamline the authoring method for multi-step assembly instructions or maintenance manuals by transforming multiple 3D views into vector illustrations in a single step. Plus, generate high-quality technical illustrations with advanced settings for thick-thin lining, color-filled parts, hidden line removal, detail level, and scale.

  • Illustration output to CorelDRAW

    Create marketing collateral from 3D manufacturing designs with ease. With the new “Send to CorelDRAW” feature, Lattice3D Studio (CAD) Corel Edition converts 3D views into illustrations for use with the creative graphics and design tools in CorelDRAW (included with CorelDRAW Technical Suite).

  • 3D CAD exchange file formats

    3D CAD exchange file formats

    Integrate specialized 3D CAD files from customers, suppliers or part libraries that are provided in a commonly used 3D CAD exchange file format, such as IGES, STEP, Parasolid or JT. Then, merge these files with the internally generated native 3D CAD source data. See full list of supported file formats.

  • Evaluation and measurement tools

    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.

  • Animation tool set

    Animation tool set

    Open a complete set of animation tools in Lattice3D Studio CAD to create assembly and maintenance instructions, including the ability to animate cross-sections. For more complex, multi-step assembly instructions, use the Disassemble tool to automatically create an animation from an assembled to an exploded view.

  • Animation editing console

    Animation editing console

    Set or modify transitions using 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.

  • Update assembly functionality

    Simplify design modifications with automated authoring capabilities for your technical communication projects. With the Auto Detection and Update tool, you can incorporate design modifications applied to the 3D CAD source data that will generate updates for all stored information including exported illustrations.
