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.
