Lattice Technology’s new XVL Web3D Manager handles gigabyte-size 3D models on a web browser

Fast access to product data regardless of size or originating CAD system

Lattice Technology, a software solution provider in the PLM space, released XVL Web3D Manager, a new product that enables viewing of complete product data (3D and metadata) using any modern web browser, accommodating even gigabyte-size 3D models with fast performance and access control.

Lattice Technology delivers XVL-based software solutions that enable manufacturing companies to repurpose 3D CAD data to be used by stakeholders downstream from product development. XVL can serve as a company’s product data backbone for 3D data consumers — standalone or inside of PLM/PDM systems. Common use cases include design reviews, assembly validation, assembly work instructions, technical documentation, and procedural service instructions. With XVL, multiple CAD files can be converted and combined into a single XVL file, even those from different CAD vendors. XVL is ultra-lightweight so that even the largest 3D models can be accessed in their entirety.

“Most of our customers use PDM/PLM systems. XVL supplements these systems to facilitate improved workflows for leveraging their 3D CAD models to functions downstream from product development,” said Hiroshi Toriya, CEO, Lattice Technology. “We have optimized XVL for the data consumer; for instance, for manufacturing, tech pubs, and service. XVL can consolidate multiple CAD files from virtually any CAD format, and because it is extremely lightweight, it can handle even gigabyte-size CAD files. XVL Web3D Manager, our latest product, simplifies how companies engage stakeholders by using only a web browser for even gigabyte-size CAD model files,” Toriya said.

XVL Web3D Manager provides complete management for XVL data files. Management includes versioning; storage of related files, such as 2D drawings and work instructions in industry-standard formats like PDF and Microsoft® Excel; integrations with internal systems; and controlled sharing to any stakeholder using a modern web browser without add-ons.

For sharing 3D data, XVL Web3D Manager controls user authentication and access rights. XVL Web3D Manager is a server product, which streams 3D and associated metadata to any modern web browser that supports HTML 5. XVL Web3D Manager delivers a high-performance user experience, even when viewing extremely large models with thousands of parts.
