RealityWave, developer of the industry's most adaptable and flexible platform for 3D-enabled Internet applications, in conjunction with the non-profit XGL XGL Xml Gui Language
XGL Extensible Gamecard Language
XGL Extended Open Graphics Library
XGL X Graphics Language Consortium, today announced that the company's XGL Export Kit is now available, free of charge. RealityWave's export kit provides XGL export capability to content creation programs, converters, and viewing applications.
Designed to represent 3D information for visualization Using the computer to convert data into picture form. The most basic visualization is that of turning transaction data and summary information into charts and graphs. Visualization is used in computer-aided design (CAD) to render screen images into 3D models that can be viewed from all purposes, XGL is a vital component of 3D application Internet strategies. XGL is an XML-based file format that attempts to capture all the 3D information rendered by OpenGL. XGL is rapidly gaining recognition as the ideal format for transmitting 3D data over the Internet and enabling complex functionality, such as collaboration, configuration, and data association.
"Companies wishing to give their customers the ability to view 3D content over the Internet should use XGL," said Daniel Wolf, a member of the XGL Consortium. "The use of a standard 3D file format forces component technology vendors to distinguish themselves on the basis of their 3D technology, while avoiding the confusion often caused by proprietary formats."
"Adding XGL support to PS/Workshop is a step we are taking to provide our clients with support for Web-enabling their applications," said Ken Sears For the baseball player, see .
Kenneth Robert Sears (born August 17, 1933 in Watsonville, California) is a retired American professional basketball player.
A 6'9" forward from Santa Clara University, Sears played eight seasons (1955-1961;1962-1964) in the National , director of Parasolid. "With the help of tools such as PS/Workshop and RealityWave's XGL Export Kit, companies can quickly and easily produce these next-generation 3D-enabled applications."
The XGL Export Kit provides an API (Application Programming Interface) A language and message format used by an application program to communicate with the operating system or some other control program such as a database management system (DBMS) or communications protocol. to produce syntactically syn·tac·tic or syn·tac·ti·cal

This can dramatically shorten the test and debug To correct a problem in hardware or software. Debugging software means locating the errors in the source code (the program logic). Debugging hardware means finding errors in the circuit design (logical circuits) or in the physical interconnections of the circuits. cycle of product development. Adding XGL export capability with the XGL Export Kit is a quick process, and ties up less than 24 hours of a developer's time. RealityWave provides technical support for a minimal fee. Applications that support XGL include: VizStream(TM) WebKit, Solid Edge(R) V8, SolidWorks(R) 2000, Autodesk Inventor Autodesk Inventor is the 3D parametric solid modeling package produced by U.S.-based software company Autodesk. It competes with other CAD systems such as SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER, and Solid Edge. (TM), and PS/Workshop.
