Theorem Releases JT to 3D PDF Product v21.1

STAFFORDSHIRE, UK, Sep 25, 2018 – Theorem Solutions has announced the release of the latest JT to 3D PDF product from the Publish 3D range, with new and improved product features and enhancements, and support for JT10.x.

Theorem’s Publish 3D – 3D PDF products enable the publishing of JT data directly into the interactive 3D PDF document format.

The published PDF document contains embedded interactive 3D representations of the native JT data (within pre-defined templates), offering greater levels of Intellectual Property (IP) protection, with support for separate passwords to control the editing of the 3D PDF output.

New enhancements for v21.1:

  • The ability to add images into tables which, rather than use text to describe individual parts in a BOM table, can be used to make clearer which parts are in question. Using images also makes a template more visually appealing for the end user.
  • When creating a new template, all images can be saved to a single directory and one command used to import them all, rather than having to import each individual image.
  • More dynamic and customizable templates can now be created with improved CSS support for active BOM tables and highlighted parts.

Theorem’s Unified Interface (UI) provides the opportunity for multiple PDF publishing from a single data source using the selection of ready-made templates, or the option of Theorem consultancy services to create bespoke templates. Theorem’s UI helps the development and streamlining of translation and downstream processes by allowing engineering data to be filtered, viewed, interrogated, manipulated and translated interactively or in batches with the ability to publish user specific documentation.

The Publish 3D product supports model based definition (MBD) and 3D annotations and dimensions (PMI) from JT into the 3D PDF format.

Anybody with access to the freely available Adobe Reader, either on a PC, tablet or smartphone can access the interactive 3D data and are able to view, mark up and interrogate the document without the use of specialist CAD software. As 3D PDF is an ISO standard (ISO 24517-1 (PDF/E), the technology can beeasily integrated and can effectively become the protocol for easy, seamless document creation and communication.

Through a partnership with Siemens, Theorem can ensure that there is a parallel development between the latest releases of JT and Publish 3D products, allowing Theorem to continue to provide 3D publishing solutions for the JT community.
