XVL Web Master

Create Web Pages with Interactive 3D Models Embedded

XVL Web Master makes publishing of intelligent 3D information into light weight, fast loading 3D web pages as simple as selecting a template and clicking a button! It has never been easier to communicate with interactive 3D parts, components, or complete products – with or without exploded parts views or animations.

The power of the Internet combined with XVL Web Master means that ideas, concepts, assembly and maintenance instructions, and customer help instructions can be conveyed quickly and intuitively with 3D.

XVL Web Master utilizes highly compressed XVL data derived from all major CAD systems, Digital Content Creation (DCC), and other formats, to effortlessly present your products to the worldwide web.

Key Features & Benefits of XVL Web Master

  • Ease of Use – Improved intuitive interface, advanced toolbar and Publishing Wizard – enables the user to easily generate complex, interactive web pages. Cross-referenced through a step-by-step process with a few mouse clicks – no HTML coding required.
  • Publishing to the web – The highly compressed format of XVL makes it possible to publish complex 3D models on the web – and XVL Web Master makes it happen! The benefit of exporting to HTML is the improvement and sophistication of the 3D digital experience for users of your website. You can have 3D rather than 2D pictures on your website, with photorealistic models that visitors can rotate and view with a mouseover. In place of photographs, you can offer assembly animations or configuration options such as different colors and a selection of customizable accessories.
  • Convenient pre-set Templates – XVL Web Master includes many pre-defined HTML page templates. Users can choose their preferred output format – and also create their own templates, or customize existing templates. When used with XVL Converter Servers, templates enable batch processing of high volumes of HTML pages and automated updating.
  • Full integration – Generate, amend, and publish 3D documents with any Lattice product.
Graphical Interface
Users can create complex, interactive web pages with the click of a few buttons.
Easy to learn, simple to use. Users can choose from the supplied templates or create their own.
Rich Templates
Built-in views include 3D Models, 2D Images, 2D Illustrations, Assembly Trees, Part Tables, Process Animations, and more.
Create ‘rich’ 3D models and associated data for concise, accurate, and highly graphical communication to facilitate faster comprehension and increased understanding.
Batch Processing
Can process XVL files one at a time, or in groups.
When applicable, batch processing increases productivity.
3D Model Views and Layer Display
Integrates all the XVL data and creates 3D views so users can display, manipulate, and interact with the model. Display layers defined inside XVL data.
Flexible selection of a part in any view highlights it in all the other views for ease of use and minimizes mistakes.
Parts List and Assembly Tree Creation
Automatically creates parts lists and assembly trees from XVL data. Displays the parts lists and assembly struc-tures in hyperlinked tables.
Users can select parts by name and highlight the selected parts in 3D views, 2D illustrations, and other views.
Assembly/Disassembly Animation
Automatically creates assembly/disassembly animations from XVL data. No knowledge of scripting or animation is required. Embeds the animations into the 3D views.
Users can opt to automatically animate selected parts. One click to create exploded and animated part views delivers rapid productivity benefits to enterprise.
2D Illustrations
Automatically creates 2D illustrations of parts and assem-blies which can be hyperlinked to the underlying XVL data so that selecting a part in a 2D image will highlight that part in the parts list and the 3D views. Several 2D image formats, including SVG and JPEG are supported.
Multiple 2D views can help explain and teach. The automatic association (shown with graphical highlighting) of 2D views to the 3D view and parts lists aids understanding and reduces errors.
PDM Integration
Optionally embed PDM data into the parts list, so that users have a direct link to the PDM system from the parts table.
Enables any BOM/CAD Parts list difference to be addressed.
Process Planning
Creates process planning tables for any XVL data found.
Easy creation or modification of assembly process order
Full integration
Generate, amend, and publish 3D documents using XVL files generated by any Lattice products.
All XVL functions, such as process animation capabilities created in XVL Studio, are available to use in HTML pages.

XVL® (eXtensible Virtual world description Language), an XML-based, neutral format used for compression, conversion, and integration of 3D data.
