Lattice Technology Releases XVL Player v9

14 Apr, 2008

Measurement and dimension tools now included in free online viewer.

Lattice Technology, developers of the XVL suite of 3D publishing applications, announced that XVL Player v9 is now available for free download from the Lattice Technology Web site.

XVL Player is a free viewer with 3D visualization capabilities such as rotate, pan, and zoom and allows users to view parts and assemblies in the compressed XVL format. Previously available only on the licensed version of XVL Player Pro, measurement, cross sectioning, and advanced viewing features are now included in v9. The new functions reportedly allow users to add information commonly used in the downstream manufacturing process. Additionally, users can create dimensions and profiles for 3D objects or view previously defined snapshots and positions or set properties to refer to other documents.

"Our expansion of features in our free offering is based on the idea that XVL Player v9 will expand dramatically throughout organizations that use XVL," said Lattice Technology's General Manager Bill Barnes. "This will make the Lattice product family, including XVL Studio, XVL Web Master, and Lattice3D Reporter, even more valuable."

According to the company, v9.1 of XVL Player is scheduled for release in May and will feature animation controls to play process animations.
