PLANO, TX, Sep 22, 2008 - Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced the latest release of its no-charge 3D visualization solution, JT2Go.

New robust functionality in JT2Go now enables users to more effectively work with digital models created in the JT format, the PLM industry’s most widely used lightweight 3D data format for product visualization, collaboration and CAD interoperability. Today’s announcement, combined with the increasingly widespread usage of JT, will result in enhanced collaboration and cost savings for manufacturers and suppliers worldwide.

“The new expanded JT2Go version will extend our usage of JT for an efficient collaboration with our suppliers worldwide and optimize the digital engineering visualization solutions in the automotive industry,” said Alfred Katzenbach, head of Information Technology of Daimler’s Research and Development and board member of the ProSTEP iViP association. “It is a further step to establish and support the JT format as an international standard in the field of digital engineering visualization.”

The new release of JT2Go contains several additional features that were previously only available through a purchased license of the visualization component of Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter digital lifecycle management software. These features provide a variety of significant benefits to the end user.

  • Viewing Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) directly off the digital model, such as dimensions, tolerances and other manufacturing data, improves communication to the shop floor and enhances quality assurance.
  • New sophisticated measurement tools make accurate dimensional information readily available to the end user.
  • The ability to cross section JT models provides users with a better understanding of design details.

“The JT data format is the common 3D language of PLM, with broad adoption across the industry that is fueled by the JT Open Program whose members continue to expand the value of JT throughout their extended enterprises,” said Bruce Feldt, vice president of Open Tools, Siemens PLM Software. “The significantly increased functionality added to our no-cost JT2Go viewer, facilitates continued growth and value expansion of JT while reinforcing Siemens PLM Software’s open business model.”

JT2Go was introduced in November 2004 to enable anyone associated with a product’s lifecycle – such as manufacturers, suppliers, business partners and customers – to easily view 3D product models in real time and from any location, at no cost. JT2Go can be downloaded at www.jt2go.com.

About JT and JT Open

The JT data format serves as a common 3D language for enabling multi-CAD product visualization and information sharing between PLM software applications. The robust functionality and lightweight nature of JT makes it possible to view and share product data, manufacturing information and interactive images worldwide, in real-time and throughout all phases of the product lifecycle.

With more than five million applications enabled by JT in use worldwide, JT is the de facto standard for 3D visualization, collaboration and interoperability within a variety of key industries including automotive and aerospace. The JT Open Program is a community of global leaders that view PLM as a competitive advantage and advocate JT as the industry standard 3D visualization format.
