Free Full-Functioning 3D CAD Player and Viewers for XVL

All players and viewers from Lattice Technology are FREE

From the Windows browser-based application, to the Microsoft® Excel® add-in, to mobile apps for Apple® iOS devices – Lattice Technology allows you to share your data –

  • within your company
  • externally with stakeholders (e.g. suppliers and tooling vendors)
  • with your customers.

The ultra-lightweight XVL data structure allows for very large models to be examined using minimally configured PCs to laptops to mobile devices . The XVL model size is typically less than 1% of the original CAD model size.  For example, the satellite sample model (which you will find on the samples page) was over 3GB in SolidWorks® and the resulting XVL model is 3.5MB.
