XVL Studio for Creating Advanced Technical Documentation

Author XVL Files from any 3D CAD Model

XVL Studio is our core authoring tool for making 3D design data into 3D manufacturing data.

Primary Features

Author Work Instructions

XVL Studio (Standard and Pro versions) gives the user the ability to create powerful work instructions which are linked to accurate product geometry which may include animations.  XVL Studio also automates much of the task by creating part paths for assembly and disassembly and automatic camera positioning for optimal viewing of the step. Learn More.

Create Technical Documentation

XVL Studio puts the power in the hands of the Technical Illustrator.  Leveraging the CAD geometry, the Illustrator can focus on how to best visually communicate.  Easily create standard illustrations with all the features you would expect or create interactive 3D illustrations. Now supporting 3D PDF. Learn More.

Design Processes with Digital Mock Up

XVL Studio can be used to model entire processes.  For instance, the entire assembly process can be modeled in order to validate a design before moving into manufacturing (design for manufacturing).  Using XVL Studio, models of tooling and fixtures can be included in the XVL model — even human mannequins with realistic movement can be included. Learn More.
