Powerful Editing of 3D Parts, Annotations and Dimensioning Enhanced in 3D Publishing ToolsFebruary 27, 2007 San Francisco, CA – Lattice Technology, Inc., developers of the leading 3D Publishing applications that use the ultra-compressed XVL format today announced that XVL Studio 6.3, the newest update in its XVL Studio line of software, is now available.
XVL Studio drives innovation, collaboration, and communication with ultra-compressed XVL, a format which reduces 3D CAD files into lightweight documents. XVL-compressed 3D files can be viewed, measured and annotated outside the design department and used throughout the extended enterprise. XVL Studio solves the multi-CAD problem by allowing users to assemble models from different CAD systems to automatically create new XVL assemblies.
The XVL Studio products enable the sharing of intelligent 3D content throughout the manufacturing enterprise using the free XVL Player as well HTML, Microsoft Office and PDF. XVL Studio 6.3 brings enhanced tools for editing of 3D data and improvements in the interface of measurement, dimensioning and annotation tools. The product is available at 3 levels: XVL Studio Basic, XVL Studio Standard and XVL Studio Pro.
Specific new features include:
3D Dimensioning tools
3D Annotation Tools
3D Measurement tools
Enhanced User Interface to streamline these processes
“After the design department approves a model, the 3D data can be refined and repurposed for other disciplines. This re-use of 3D data in animated assembly instructions, lightweight 3D drawings and technical illustrations is key in many global manufacturing operations,” said Bill Barnes, general manager, Lattice Technology, Inc. “The XVL Studio products allow non-CAD users to access the 3D data rapidly, without having to constantly revert back to the design team for assistance. Using XVL Studio has allowed our customers to realize process improvements and cost savings across their enterprises.”
XVL Studio Basic is a full-function 3D viewer with essential editing and authoring capabilities, including measurement, annotation, and cross-sectioning functions. The application creates technical illustrations, 3D part views, 3D assemblies, publishable into 3D PDF, HTML and Microsoft Office.
XVL Studio Standard provides an enhanced level of usability by including animations with key-frame and process definitions.
XVL Studio Pro provides all these tools, in addition to rapid exploration and validation of designs, scalable to very large data sets.
Manufacturers worldwide use XVL Studio to share, prepare, integrate and publish documents that include 3D data and information.
