GDML is an application-independent geometry description format based on XML.

3DLive is available in MachiningCloud for products that require kinematics such as machine tools and workholding devices. MachiningCloud provides 3D models of cutting tools for Vericut and other related CAD/CAM and simulation software.

DMG MORI, HAAS Automation, Mazak, Kennametal and KURT Workholding are among the first to supply GDML machine tool, driven turret units and fixture models to MachiningCloud.

Vericut is the first software of its kind to support the import of 3DLive files for use in verifying, simulating and optimizing NC programs, eliminating the need to measure and model the components by traditional means or request 3D models from the machine tool builder.

The 3DLive catalog in MachiningCloud currently has more than 8,700 products containing kinematics, travel limits, minimum and maximum feed rates, initial machine location and 3D geometry colors in a single file format.
