XVL Reducer is a new software module from Lattice Technology, Inc. (San Francisco, CA) that removes certain structural features from within a 3D part or assembly before it is shared with suppliers and others outside the company. It can further reduce the size of XVL data by editing stored geometry.
For example, a typical use of Reducer would be the removal of all internal features of a model, leaving only the outside skin, for use with catalogs and marketing materials.
XVL Reducer is sold as a stand-alone module or as part of the XVL System Toolkit. Within the Toolkit, there are two additional modules the XVL processor to manage input and output, and the XVL Filter to provide automation and batch operation on XVL files. For more information, go to lattice3d.com.
