XVL Converter Plug-In for SolidWorksis a plug-in for SolidWorks that enables the user to import and export XVL files from within the application. XVL Converters are industry-leading converters that quickly and accurately translate all major CAD and 3D data formats into XVL, able to compress 3D data up to 0.5% of its original size with very high accuracy.
Lattice Technology offers a variety of converters that convert your 3D CAD and design data into ultra-lightweight XVL to meet your business needs. By converting 3D data into lightweight and accurate XVL, you can leverage your 3D assets in a variety of manufacturing process solutions, enabling 3D digitization of your product manufacturing lifecycle.
XVL Converters access CAD models through the respective CAD system, and achieve breakthrough ultra-compression by expressing the model as highly compressed 3D surfaces that maintain both high accuracy and the visual integrity of the original data. All converters on offer can perform post- processing commands after conversions.
Key Features of XVL CAD Converters
Compress 3D CAD Data to Ultra-lightweight XVL - XVL Converters can reduce the file size of 3D CAD data up to 1/100 of original size. This allows you to work with much larger assembly data without the need for expensive high-end workstations.
Support Industry Standard 3D CAD Formats - XVL Converters can convert industry standard 3D mechanical CADs including CATIA V5, Creo Parametric, NX and Solidworks. In addition, they convert other interchange file formats such as JT and STEP.
Maintain Design Accuracy - You can specify the conversion tolerances according to your business needs. XVL's ability to maintain up to 0.001mm accuracy allows you to leverage 3D models in a wide range of solutions without relying on the original 3D CAD files.
Convert CAD Properties - XVL Converters not only convert geometries and E-BOM, but also convert CAD properties. This allows you to utilize CAD properties as metadata for various technical documents.
Convert CAD PMI - XVL Converters can also translate PMI, which communicates design intent. This enables XVL to be used for collaborative product development between engineering and manufacturing.
Automate Conversion Processes - Some XVL Converters can be executed remotely or as part of a batch process, enabling automation of the conversion process.
Benefits of XVL CAD Converters
Automation and Reliability - proven, extremely dependable, large scale, flexible, enterprise-class and industrial-strength automated file conversion.
Enhance collaboration with enterprise-wide access to ultra-compressed 3D CAD while preserving the accuracy and visual integrity of the 3D model.
Solve the multi-CAD problem by converting and then combining your data from multiple CAD formats into a single, compressed, efficient format: XVL.
Improve productivity in your business processes by enabling 3D CAD asset re-use, eliminating the need for data recreation and the potential for errors or repetition in downstream applications.
Ultra-compression - the best available compression for the lightest no-loss 3D files with high fidelity graphics.
Ultra-compression of 3D models All major 3D formats converted to XVL.
Enables increased innovation, collaboration, and communication across the enterprise.
Large-scale Data Handling XVL scales to very large data sets.
Handle relatively simple to extremely complex models with the same technology.
Advanced Conversion Parameters The user can specify conversion parameters such as accuracy tolerance and single/multiple file generation and XVL type. Users can choose the size and accuracy of the XVL model for their own needs.
Protect your data ... by deliberately reducing the accuracy of the model, it can be used for process animations but not for manufacturing. This simplification enables the publication of basic 3D data without revealing sensitive or proprietary information.
Detailed Conversion Logging Each time XVL converters translate CAD data, critical conversion information is saved in log files.
Provides an audit trail for thorough tracking of data sources.
Automated Conversion Initiation XVL Converter Server includes a command-line interface that enables external systems to convert CAD data automatically.
Enables more productive conversion processes and automated updating of downstream publishing.
Seamless Workflow Integration In system integration, each conversion might need some additional processing, such as registry into another database. In these cases, the XVL Converter Server allows the user to add additional processes right after conversion.
Converter Servers conveniently integrate into Product Data Management and Lifecycle Management (PDM/PLM).
