Lightweight 3D format

The XVL compressed format allows the easy sharing, reuse, simulation, and testing of 3D assemblies in a sensible and productive manner no matter what the size of the data. XVL v10 (codenamed U-XVL) delivers yet more compression, letting files be viewed, manipulated, and checked more than two times faster than ever before. As a result of the format's high compression Lattice Technology applications are being updated. These will roll-out during Summer 2009 and are available at no charge to existing maintenance customers. Find out more at
