XVL Studio Series
The XVL Studio series is a suite of authoring tools for editing and viewing 3D data for product manufacturing. Based on ultra-lightweight XVL, it enables 3D digital transformation of the product manufacturing lifecycle.
XVL Studio provides a variety of tools for verifying product designs, planning manufacturing processes, and creating 3D content such as work instructions and technical illustrations.
The XVL Studio Series includes three grades: Basic, Standard, and Pro, and several options.
Key Features and Benefits
Navigate and Author Large 3D Models
XVL Studio can handle large 3D assembly models, allowing you to work without having to split manufacturing data into smaller sub-assemblies. The entire assembly data can be viewed and edited on a single file, making your work faster and more efficient.
Import All 3D CAD and Interchange Formats
XVL Studio can import native CAD formats such as CATIA, Creo Parametric, NX, Solidworks, as well as other interchange file formats such as JT and STEP. Once these 3D formats are imported into XVL, they can be used together in a single lightweight file.
Check Engineering Designs
XVL Studio offers a wide range of features to check and improve the quality of your designs. The engineering tools range from basic tools such as measurements and cross sections to more advanced tools such as automated interference checking.
Plan Manufacturing Process
XVL Studio allows 3D design data to be used for digital design and verification of manufacturing processes. XVL Studio supports multiple BOMs, including E-BOM, M-BOM, and process sequences. This allows the user to plan the manufacturing process and verify each process while still preserving the original engineering BOM.
Create Work Instructions
XVL Studio makes it easy to create work instructions using process data. Easily create illustrations or animations for each task, and add notes, warnings and other information as required. The work instructions can be published in Excel or Web3D using Lattice3D Reporter or XVL Web3D Manager.
Also check out XVL Work Instruction Suite.
Create 3D Parts Lists with Multiple BOMs
XVL Studio's multi-BOM feature allows you to create and manage several different BOMs with a single XVL model. For example, you can easily create parts lists for E-BOMs, M-BOMs and Service BOMs that interlink with 3D data.
Create Technical Illustrations
XVL Studio makes it easy to create technical illustrations using 3D data: you can explode assembly parts in 3D, add notes and balloons, and create multiple illustration views. The illustration views can then be exported as raster or vector images for use in technical documentation.
Also check out XVL Technical Illustration Suite.
Auto Update Feature
XVL Studio can automatically update your work when the model changes. When XVL Studio receives a new version of a model, its "Auto Detect and Update" feature automatically scans the new version and finds all of the changes from the previous version. It then shows the changes to the user for verification or correction. When the changes are verified, XVL Studio automatically applies all of the work that was done on the old version to the new version.
XVL Studio's auto update feature enables you to work with confidence, knowing that your work will be carried forward when the model changes.
Engineering Design Review
Automatic interference checking tools can detect more problems with large assembly data earlier in the design process. This improves design quality, saves time and reduces cost.
