DESY’s Information Management Processes Projects (IPP) group continued their design integration activities for the ILC and managed to automatically generate simple three-dimensional models from lattice files obtaining a 3-D model of the entire accelerator. Tunnel and infrastructure models can be added where available to get an early preview of the facility. More images can be seen at the LCWS11 conference in Granada.
