Announcing XVL Content Manager

XVL Content Manager redefines how companies can leverage their 3D and associated data to downstream stakeholders 

Denver, CO, August 10, 2023 – Companies engaged in the production of complex products now have a game-changing solution for managing 3D and associated data for functions downstream from design.  XVL Content Manager, an innovative software developed by Lattice Technology, empowers teams with a fast and user-friendly approach to managing 3D CAD and associated data, eliminating the challenges of time-consuming, tedious, and error-prone processes.

Product Lifecycle Downstream from Development

Fundamentally Different than PDM

Unlike traditional Product Data Management (PDM) systems designed primarily for design data, XVL Content Manager offers a fundamentally different approach.  By leveraging graphics-based technology, XVL Content Manager provides a comprehensive solution that integrates the complete product structure, 3D CAD models, and all relevant data into a unified Virtual Product Model.  This intuitive and visually appealing platform enables seamless navigation and utilization.

Most companies will continue using their current data management solutions (PDM) to support the product design function.  XVL Content Manager is ideal for managing this data downstream from design.


Enhanced Collaboration

XVL Content Manager redefines the utilization of 3D and related data, offering configurable workflows that can be adapted to an organization's unique needs.  This fosters collaboration among different departments and teams.  The result is streamlined complex tasks, enhanced teamwork, and a culture of efficient cooperation.


Auto Update from 3D CAD: Saving Time & Improving Quality

One standout feature of XVL Content Manager is its advanced auto-update capabilities.  When underlying 3D data changes (e.g., for ECOs), the system automatically presents the changes to an expert user.  Stakeholders receive prompt notifications of changes, enabling them to make informed decisions based on the latest information.  This automated process saves time and mitigates potential errors arising from outdated data.


Unparalleled Performance

The underlying data structure for the 3D data is CAD-level accurate and retains all of the metadata, yet it is extremely lightweight – about 1/100th the size of the original 3D CAD data.  The software accommodates extremely large models and complex designs, providing fast performance even with high part counts.


Version Control

Version control is a critical aspect of managing 3D data and documents. XVL Content Manager ensures comprehensive version control, granting all users access to the latest information.  This single source of truth eliminates confusion and ensures accuracy, promoting better decision-making throughout your organization.



Supporting Single Sign-On (SSO) through Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), the software ensures secure access for authorized users.  User-based and role-based security, coupled with comprehensive activity tracking, guarantees the protection of sensitive data.


Gateway to 3D Digital Transformation

XVL Content Manager provides the secure, streamlined gateway to digital transformation for your 3D data.  By increasing productivity and driving collaboration, this powerful software sets your organization up for success now and into the future.

XVL Content Manager is not just a solution; it's a gateway to 3D digital transformation.  Whether operating independently or seamlessly integrating with existing business systems such as CAD, PLM, ERP, and MES, the software enhances your digital transformation journey.  By harnessing the power of 3D, it paves the way for elevated innovation, efficiency, and competitive advantage.



XVL Content Manager can manage all your 3D CAD models and associated data.  All 3D CAD models can be combined into a single, lightweight XVL file that can provide high performance.

With robust version control, this can now become your source of truth usable by downstream stakeholders.

Being graphical based makes it intuitive for stakeholders with all levels of technical expertise.
