Simplify 3D communication with 3D CAD add-on

Start with an original 3D design and automatically implement design changes using XVL Studio 3D CAD Corel Edition, the essential add-on for CorelDRAW® Technical Suite 2018. This powerful 3D PDF software goes far beyond traditional 3D file support and allows you or your team to transform complex 3D CAD parts and assemblies into comprehensible visualizations. As a result, you can increase the ROI potential of your company's 3D CAD investment.

XVL Studio 3D CAD Corel Edition provides critical functionality and added benefits that are not offered with the basic XVL Studio software that is included with CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2018.

Accessing design assets


Leverage your 3D CAD data with industry-standard support, sharing and output. Utilize the extensive options for compatibility including native 3D assembly formats, such as CATIA, Inventor, PTC Creo, SolidWorks, NX, SolidEdge, and 3D CAD exchange file formats such as IGES, STEP, JT and more.


Create more efficient assembly, disassembly, spare parts or manufacturing BOMs with the extensive feature set in XVL Studio 3D CAD. Generate illustrated assembly and maintenance instructions leveraging 3D Engineering data, or generate step-by-step instructions as process animations using a full set of 3D animation tools.

Using precision illustration and graphics tools
Publishing industry-standard compliant output


Apply changes instantly with the automated 3D CAD to illustration update functionality. Modifications made to the 3D CAD source files will be applied during the update process. With the seamless Auto Detection and Update functionality, you can ensure any changes originating from an engineering design will be implemented.


Author, share or output 3D visualizations in a variety of formats. Create high-resolution and photo-realistic shaded renderings from 3D output projects and then share in the preferred 3D file format, including IGES, STL, U3D, XVL and VRML, or publish to 3D PDF.

Improve your 3D visualization capabilities with this beneficial add-on



Expanded 3D CAD file formats

Benefit from a broader range of support for native 3D CAD system assembly and part formats, including CATIA, Inventor, PTC Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/ENGINEER), SolidWorks, NX, SolidEdge and more.
See full list of supported file formats.

Enhanced!Additional 3D CAD visualization tools
Additional 3D CAD visualization tools

Access more 3D visualization tools, like advanced 3D annotations, and additional tools for component selection, parts modification, order options and control over the component structure of complex assemblies.

Multi vector illustration output

Enjoy an accelerated workflow with an improved, streamlined process for sending individual snapshots as well as updating or sending illustrations from numerous 3D view selections. It provides a more efficient way to author multi-step assembly instructions or maintenance manuals by transforming multiple 3D views into vector illustrations in a single step.

Illustration output to CorelDRAW

Create marketing collateral from 3D manufacturing designs with ease. With the “Send to CorelDRAW” feature, XVL Studio (3D CAD) Corel Edition converts 3D views into illustrations for use with the creative graphics and design tools in CorelDRAW (included with CorelDRAW Technical Suite).

Enhanced!3D CAD exchange file formats
3D CAD exchange file formats

Assimilate an array of specialized 3D CAD files from customers, suppliers or part libraries directly into your illustrations. Compatible files can be provided in commonly used 3D CAD exchange file formats, such as IGES, STEP, Parasolid or JT and can then be merged with the internally generated native 3D CAD source data.
See full list of supported file formats.

ENHANCED!Evaluation and measurement tools
Evaluation and measurement tools

Use the interference check and collision detection capability to instantly verify the integrity of the 3D model for technical documentation. Ensure the precision of any measurement by applying the 3D assembly evaluation and dimension tools.

Animation tool set
Animation tool set

Open a complete set of animation tools in XVL Studio 3D CAD to create assembly and maintenance instructions, including the ability to animate cross-sections. For more complex, multi-step assembly instructions, use the Disassemble tool to automatically create an animation from an assembled to an exploded view.

ENHANCED!Advanced automation capabilities
Animation editing console

Streamline the creation and editing of alerts, and then attach these warning messages to the tasks during the animation process. Take advantage of the new Process Snapshot feature that can generate illustrated, step-by-step procedures as a list of snapshots.

Update assembly functionality

Utilize the enhanced Find tool to detect changed parts and apply selected properties during the update process. Incorporate design modifications applied to the 3D CAD source data that will generate updates for all stored information, including previously output illustrations. Display selected components only when comparing the “before” and “after” 3D model.

High-quality renderingPlay
High-quality rendering

With superior shading and rendering capabilities including textures, lights, shadow mapping and ambient occlusion, you can output photo-realistic images for professional photo-editing with Corel PHOTO-PAINT (included with CorelDRAW Technical Suite).

3D publishing and output
3D publishing and output

Share, publish and output 3D visualizations in a variety of formats. Share XVL files for interactive view on iPad and iPhone apps. Publish to HTML5 for sharing 3D with most devices, or publish and read 3D PDF with animations, readable with free PDF reader installed on most desktops and laptops. XVL Studio 3D CAD also supports saving to IGES, STEP, U3D and VRML – to be ready for AR (Augmented Reality) app publishing.

ENHANCED!Additional XVL Studio options
