Cradle-7.1.1 Released

We are pleased to announce that we released Cradle-7.1.1 on 7th June 2016. This is a small update to the Cradle-7.1 release that added SysML into the range of MBSE notations available in Cradle's integrated modelling tools.

The Cradle-7.1.1 release changes the way that equipment and port symbols are drawn in Physical Architecture Diagrams (PADs), allowing public ports to be drawn more neatly and more densely inside equipment symbols. It also adds a new ability to run queries on items that are indirectly linked or not linked to other types of items, and includes a variety of other small updates. Full details are available in the release notes that are installed as part of the Cradle-7.1.1 installation.

The release notes for Cradle-7.1.1 are available from our website. To get them, please visit, login to your account and download the new release from the Documentation part of the Resources section of our website here.

Security Codes for Cradle-7.1 will also work with Cradle-7.1.1.

If you have a single-user Cradle-7.1 system, such as Cradle-SE Pro, then you can also upgrade to Cradle-7.1.1.

To get the new release, please visit, login to your account and download the new release from the Software part of the Resources section of our website here.

If you install Cradle-7.1.1 anywhere, then please install it everywhere!

We hope that you will like this new release of Cradle!

3SL at INCOSE International Symposium

3SL will be attending the INCOSE International Symposium held in Edinburgh in the UK between 18th and 21st July 2016. Full details of the event can be found here.

If you are able to travel to Edinburgh, we will be delighted to meet you during the event at our stand B4.

New Australian Partner

We are pleased to announce that we have a new partner in Australia, Agile Controls. The main point of contact is Simon Fearnley. Contact details for Agile Controls are in our website here and the Agile Controls website can be found here.

All of our existing customers in Australia will continue to deal directly with 3SL.

We welcome the opportunity to work with Agile Controls and to grow the use of Cradle in Australia!

SysML Videos

3SL in the US have posted a series of videos demonstrating the SysML support in Cradle-7.1. This is a single demonstration, split into a series of parts.

You can access these videos here.

Please watch these videos to see how SysML models can be built in Cradle and how these models can be integrated into other information, such as requirements, tests, test cases, defects, issues and risks.

At 3SL we believe that MBSE is an excellent approach to defining the architecture and behaviour of a system (whichever notations you choose to use) but only if it is integrated into all of the other information in your project.

MBSE in isolation is just a collection of pretty pictures!

Open Webinars

We propose to start a series of regular, open, webinars in which 3SL staff will be available to answer your questions about 3SL and Cradle. The dates and times of the webinars will be listed in our website and anyone will be welcome to attend. They will be timed to allow as many people to connect as possible, wherever you may be based. The webinars will be in English.

The webinars will be one hour and can include any technical or commercial topics. We may propose some specific topic(s) for the webinar, but the emphasis will primarily be on an opportunity to get answers to your questions.

If you have any opinion on this proposal, please send us an e-mail here.
