XVL Studio Series

XVL Studio is for authoring and publishing content converted from virtually any 3D CAD system. XVL Studio is available in Basic, Standard, and Pro versions.

Product Summary

Using XVL Studio, it is possible to improve the assembly process by verifying processes and providing clear communication to the manufacturing floor that 3D CAD cannot do.

Use Cases Include:

Author Work Instructions

XVL Studio gives the user the ability to create powerful, visual work instructions that are linked to accurate part geometry. Work instructions commonly include three view panes: 1) 3D parts/assemblies, 2) process tree for assembly/service, and 3) bill of materials (BOM) - all of which are linked and may include animations. 

XVL Studio also automates much of the authoring task by creating part paths for assembly/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 of the features you would expect, or create interactive 3D illustrations. Now supporting 3D PDF. Learn More.

Design and Validate Processes with Digital Mock Up

XVL Studio can be used to model entire assembly/services processes. For instance, the entire assembly process can be modeled in order to validate the manufacturing plan. 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.

Three Versions

XVL Studio is available in three versions, each with various additional options. Visit XVL Studio Features and Benefits for a detailed comparison of the three versions of XVL Studio.

XVL Studio Pro

Includes Standard plus interference checking, clearance analysis.

XVL Studio Standard

Includes Basic plus work instructions, animations, process definitions.

XVL Studio Basic

Includes measurement, annotation authoring, cross-sectioning.

Digital Mock Up

Design Review processes can be executed on even the most complex assemblies ensuring that you have a fully validated design before releasing data for downstream processes.  The built-in ability to generate reports with 3D images and cross-section images simplifies the task of sharing results from interference checking with others.

The task of process planning, also called Digital Assembly, can be enhanced using Lattice3D Studio.  Comprehensive tools enable the interactive building of mBOM’s.  Easy animation tools and dynamic measurement and clash detection allow easy simulation of assembly tasks, maintenance operations, and manufacturing tasks.  Human models can be added to the process for complete simulation and verification of operations.   It’s easy to export BOM information, tooling information, and parts lists associated with process plans for use with other systems or documents.

Lattice3D Studio’s ability to support data from multiple sources makes it simple to include tooling and data from suppliers in your DMU, even if it is a different CAD format than the original assembly data.

Revisions and design changes can be easily detected and updated in your DMU environment. The ability to automatically detect changes will ensure that new process plans and design review checks can be generated quickly and easily.
