Conversion of 3D CAD data into XVL v10, the Industry’s Most Lightweight 3D Format, Now Available.
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif - Lattice Technology®, developers of digital manufacturing applications using the XVL® format, today announced Version 6.0 of its XVL Converter applications, delivering the tools to convert 3D CAD data into the industry’s most lightweight, most accurate 3D XVL format, plus new Converters for 64-bit CAD applications.
The XVL Converter applications are available as both Plug-ins to 3D CAD seats or as stand-alone processors (known as Converter Servers). They seamlessly and accurately convert 3D CAD data into the XVL format, which enables the 3D data to become immediately usable and flexible for downstream uses, and compact enough to be rapidly distributed around a dispersed or global manufacturing operation.
Version 6.0 of the XVL Converter applications supports the new XVL v10 format, which delivers the industry’s most compressed 3D format with no loss of accuracy. XVL v10 can compress 3D CAD data to 0.5% of its original size, allowing anyone in the manufacturing supply chain to quickly view and understand even the most complex 3D CAD data, even on a low specification PC.
These new converters also support the most recent versions of the major 3D CAD applications including:
* CATIA® V5 R18 and R19
* Pro/ENGINEER® Wildfire® 3 and 4
* NX I-deas® 5 and 6
* Autodesk Inventor® 2008 and 2009
* Mechanical Desktop® 2008 and 2009
* CoCreate® 2007 and 2008
* Solid Edge® V20 and ST
* SolidWorks® 2008 and 2009
* NX™ 5 and 6
These latest versions also add more support for 64-bit CAD applications including:
* CATIA V5 (64-bit) R18 and R19 (Converter Plug-in and Server)
* Pro/ENGINEER (64-bit) Wildfire 3 and 4 (Converter Server)
* SolidWorks (64-bit) 2008 and 2009 (Converter Plug-In and Server)
* NX (64-bit) 5 and 6 (Converter Server)
In addition, 2 new options for the Converter Servers which support PMI (Product Management Information) data for Pro/ENGINEER and NX have also been introduced.
The new range of Converters are available to all maintenance customers now
