The release of the latest CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE to JT translator, from Theorem’s Visualize 3D product range, features new enhancements alongside updates to improve geometry quality.
Based upon the Dassault Systemes strategic XCAD technology, Theorem’s latest release, V19.3, enables the Catia users to create a JT representation of their data, and supports the translation of assembly structure, geometry, attributes, 3D product manufacturing information and metadata.
In doing so, the product facilitates Model Based Definition (MBD) processes containing sufficient information to manufacture and inspect products without the need for 2D engineering drawings.
V19.3 supports CATIA V6R2013x, 3DEXPERIENCE R2014x, R2015x and R2016x and Jtk. 8.0. This uni-directional product can be licensed with Theorem’s JT to CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE Visualize 3D product to create a bi-directional translator.
Theorem suggests that sharing Catia data by using the neutral ISO standard JT format in V19.3 allows organisations to protect the intellectual property of their designs, with IP protection enhanced by restricting the JT representation to tessellated data only.
