 Applications

In early 2002, 3NF began launching new products to support the CAD, CG and 3D communities. These products bring added value to existing applications (ArchiCAD, VectorWorks, etc.), and new features and capabilities to end users.

3DS Webgate
This application is two converters in one, converting GDL to 3DS, or 3DS to XVL. This is a powerful way to get GDL libraries into the hands of other CAD and CG users around the world. Using this stand-alone application, users of other 3D software can now turn to GDL and GDL developers for 3D content.

    Features:
  • Input formats: 3DS / GSM
  • Output formats: 3DS / XVL
  • GDL environment simulation with an editable XML document
  • Localized versions: English / Japanese

» More XVL


GDL to XVL Converter
This is a desktop application that enables users to convert GDL objects into XVL files. Drag and drop the GDL object file onto the converter, and turn it into a 100% XML-based XVL object. XML objects can be dynamically linked easily with other viewing formats like SVG, and live data sources from almost anywhere, providing a much higher level of integration and presentation on the web.

    Features:
  • Input format: GSM
  • Output format: XVL
  • GDL environment simulation with an editable XML document
  • Batch conversion
  • Localized versions: English / German / Japanese

TPZ to GDL Converter
This is a desktop application that enables users to convert TPZ objects into GDL objects. Drag and drop any of thousands of TPZ objects onto the converter, and turn them into usable ArchiCAD library parts.

    Features:
  • Input format: TPZ
  • Output format: GSM
  • Saves each TPZ configuration to a separate GSM file
  • Projected or bounding box 2D representation
  • Batch conversion
  • Localized versions: English / Japanese
» More TPZ
» More GDL


XVL Editor
The XVL Editor provides powerful and innovative features for editing XVL objects.

    Features:
  • Hierarchy (shell and group) editor
  • Material editor
  • Texture editor
  • Animation editor
  • Event editor
  • Direct XML editor
  • Localized versions: English / Japanese
» More XVL


XVL Reducer
The XVL Reducer is an application that enables users to reduce the filesize of XVL files. When you're hosting hundreds or thousands of 3D objects on the web, the bytes add up fast. This tool will help you reduce them.

    Features:
  • Tuneable file-, geometry- and texture compression
  • Visual feedback to compare the original and the reduced model
  • Localized versions: English / Japanese
» More XVL


XVL to GDL Converter
The XVL to GDL Converter is a desktop application that enables users to convert XVL object files into GDL files. Drag and drop any XVL object onto the converter, and turn it into a fully scripted GDL object. Geometry, materials and textures are all transformed.

    Features:
  • Input format: XVL
  • Output format: GSM
  • Localized versions: English / Japanese

» More GDL

 Add-ons

For users of ArchiCAD and VectorWorks we have integrated some of our technologies directly into the applications, providing users with powerful new features.

XVL Exporter
The XVL Exporter is an add-on that enables export of any 3D view from ArchiCAD to a 100% XML-based 3D format known as XVL. Every detail of the model is exported, including material definitions, textures, cameras and even lighting. The level of detail to export can be controlled with the option panel.

    Features:
  • Output format: XVL
  • Exports elements, layers, materials, textures, cameras, lights and background colors
  • CAD software supported: ArchiCAD 6.5 / ArchiCAD 7 / ArchiCAD 8 / RikCAD 1.6 / VectorWorks 9.5
  • Localized versions: English / German / Japanese
» More XVL


XVL Importer
The XVL Importer is an add-on that enables users to import any XVL object into into their CAD environment. Geometry, materials and textures are all transformed, providing users with a vast new source of 3D objects.

    Features:
  • Input format: XVL
  • CAD software supported: ArchiCAD 7 / VectorWorks 9.5
  • Localized versions: English / Japanese
» More XVL

 Java applications

One of our methods for bringing more minds and cultures together is to provide applications in Java. With the tools below, Windows, Mac and Linux users can all work with the same application.

GDL Scripter
The GDL Scripter has an advanced interface that allows you to edit existing GDL objects or develop new ones.

» See screenshot on Mac OS X


» See screenshot on Linux (Motif look&feel)

    Features:
  • Multiple objects and views interface
  • Advanced GDL script editor editor with syntax highlighting and line numbering
  • GDL parameter editor
  • Preview image editor
  • Platform indenpent, tested on: Windows / Mac OS X / Linux
  • Localized versions: English

    Features:
  • User-defined HTML layout templates
  • User-defined CSS stylesheet templates
  • Optional navigator, show/hide control
  • Extensible template language
  • Platform indenpent, tested on: Windows / Mac OS X / Linux
  • Localized versions: English / Japanese
