3D communications, simplified. Get more and do more with this 3D CAD add-on.
For advanced 3D CAD visualization authoring, bring XVL Studio 3D CAD Corel Edition to your visual communication workflow. This powerful add-on to CorelDRAW® Technical Suite exceeds traditional 3D file support. It transforms complex 3D CAD parts and assemblies into clear illustrations, and provides critical functionality and benefits not offered with the basic XVL Studio software.
Why choose XVL Studio 3D CAD Corel Edition?
Advanced - Leverage your 3D CAD data with industry-standard support, sharing and output. Utilize the extensive options for compatibility including native 3D assembly formats, (such as CATIA®, Inventor®, Creo®, SolidWorks®, NX™, Solid Edge®, software) and 3D CAD exchange file formats (such as IGES, STEP, JT, 3D PDF), and more.
Powerful - Create more efficient assembly, disassembly, spare parts, or manufacturing BOMs with the extensive feature set in XVL Studio 3D CAD. Generate illustrated assembly and maintenance instructions leveraging 3D Engineering data or generate step-by-step instructions as process animations using a full set of 3D animation tools.
Automated - Apply changes instantly with the automated 3D CAD to illustration update functionality. Modifications made to the 3D CAD source files will be applied during the update process. With the seamless Auto Detection and Update functionality, you can ensure any changes originating from an engineering design will be implemented.
3D - Author, share or output 3D visualizations in a variety of formats. Create high-resolution and photo-realistic shaded renderings from 3D output projects and then share in the preferred 3D file format, including IGES, STL, U3D, XVL and VRML, or publish to 3D PDF.
Evaluation and measurement tools - Use the interference check and collision detection capability to instantly verify the integrity of the 3D model for technical documentation. Ensure the precision of any measurement by applying the 3D assembly evaluation and dimension tools
Update assembly functionality - Utilize the Find tool to detect changed parts and apply selected properties during the update process. Incorporate design modifications applied to the 3D CAD source data that will generate updates for all stored information, including previously output illustrations. Display selected components only when comparing the “before” and “after” 3D model.
Advanced object structure handling - Save time by replacing all instances of a subassembly at once with the Replace Assembly feature and work more efficiently with the powerful Edit panel.
Animation editing console - Streamline the creation and editing of alerts, and then attach these warning messages to the tasks during the animation process. Take advantage of the Process Snapshot feature that can generate illustrated, step-by-step procedures as a list of snapshots.
Process Snapshots - Benefit from display options incl. combined shaded and hidden line display mode for task parts, and automatic callout creation for parts in a process or task. Create vector illustrations directly from Process Snapshots.
3D-sourced illustrations and markups - Leverage a more efficient process that lets you maintain positioning when updating 3D-sourced illustrations in Corel DESIGNER™. In addition, you can choose your desired line type and fill using the markup feature.
3D CAD visualization tools - Access 3D visualization tools, like advanced 3D annotations, and enhanced tools for component selection, parts modification, order options and control over the component structure of complex assemblies.
Animation tool set - Open a complete set of animation tools in XVL Studio 3D CAD to create assembly and maintenance instructions, including the ability to animate cross-sections. For more complex, multi-step assembly instructions, use the Disassemble tool to automatically create an animation from an assembled to an exploded view.
High-quality rendering - With superior shading and rendering capabilities including textures, lights, shadow mapping and ambient occlusion, you can output photo-realistic images for professional photo-editing with Corel PHOTO-PAINT™ (included with CorelDRAW Technical Suite).
Vector illustration output with image embedding - Transform 3D views to high-quality vector illustrations with preset-driven advanced settings to control thick/thin lining, color fills for parts, and more. You can also control the resolution of embedded bitmap images to generate combined vector illustration and shaded view (bitmap rendering) output in one step.
Multi vector illustration output - Enjoy an accelerated workflow with a streamlined process for sending individual snapshots as well as updating or sending illustrations from numerous 3D view selections. It provides a more efficient way to author multi-step assembly instructions or maintenance manuals by transforming multiple 3D views into vector illustrations in a single step.
Illustration output to CorelDRAW® - Create marketing collateral from 3D manufacturing designs with ease. With the “Send to CorelDRAW” feature, XVL Studio (3D CAD) Corel Edition converts 3D views into illustrations for use with the creative graphics and design tools in CorelDRAW (included with CorelDRAW Technical Suite).
3D publishing and output - Share, publish and output 3D visualizations in a variety of formats. Share XVL files for interactive view on iPad and iPhone apps. Publish to HTML5 for sharing 3D with most devices, or publish and read 3D PDF with animations, readable with free PDF reader installed on most desktops and laptops. XVL Studio 3D CAD also supports saving to IGES, STEP, U3D and VRML – to be ready for AR (Augmented Reality) app publishing.
Auto Detection and Update functionality - Maintain all the work done in XVL Studio and automatically update underlying 3D Engineering data when it has changed. Plus, you can simplify the review process and get added control of automated updates with the ability to display the number of same instances. Both features provide more control over automated updates for a streamlined workflow.
