Web-Based Interactive 3D Content Delivery

Delivering rich, interactive 3D content over the web is essential for creating immersive and engaging experiences. This technology allows users to experience high-quality graphics and seamless interactivity directly in their browsers.  Content can be delivered in a single model, or as nested models that enable the user to drill down and get more detail. This flexibility enables you to build innovative and immersive experiences that resonate with users.

Effective Management of Complex Models

Large model handling is essential for any company that deals with complex CAD data or models. XVL Web3D Manager leverages the power of XVL to handle large, complex models with ease, making it easier for you to use your models to create rich, compelling content.

Swift and Smooth Operational Speeds

XVL Web3D Manager is optimized to provide fast performance and smooth interaction with large models.  It includes smart loading, a feature that automatically prioritizes the most important elements of the content, resulting in faster load times and a better user experience. Also, XVL Web3D Manager is scalable, enabling you to add resources as required to meet increased job requests and user interactivity.  Maintaining smooth performance and a seamless experience enables users to perform tasks quickly, increasing customer satisfaction and engagement.

Data Safety and Privacy

XVL Web3D Manager provides several security features to protect user data and ensure a safe and secure experience. It supports Single Sign-On (SSO) for a seamless authentication process using SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language). Administrators are given robust authorization controls and can restrict data access by role and by user.  All actions are tracked and logged, giving administrators detailed views of user activity and allowing them to quickly identify any issues and take appropriate action.
