Start manufacturing planning earlier. Changes in the CAD design is detected by XVL. The changes are presented to the manufacturing planners so they can be addressed.
Don't wait for a physical prototype - use the #VirtualProductModel.
XVL has a powerful authoring environment for creating interactive assembly work instructions. Here are just some of the benefits:
XVL has two key capabilities that enable this: 1) XVL is typically about 1/100th the size of the original 3D CAD file size while maintaining CAD-level accuracy, 2) XVL is CAD agnostic supporting all major 3D CAD formats including open formats.
Having a complete virtual product model that can be examined on a normally configured PC is the foundation. With XVL, all CAD files (even different formats, can be combined into a single 3D model file and still retain CAD-level accuracy).
Engage ANY stakeholder, quickly and easily
Fast performance, with XVL models are about 1/100th the size of the original 3D-CAD file
Share using multiple methods: a standard web browser without plug-ins, Microsoft Excel, 3D PDF and more
Use any 3D CAD data to create interactive 3D work instructions and also 2D work instructions using the same data.
Advantages over traditional methods:
