Theorem Releases Visualize 3D CATIA V5 to JT v22.0

STAFFORDSHIRE, UK, Mar 18, 2019 – Theorem Solutions has announced the release of the latest Visualize 3D CATIA V5 to JT solution.

V22.0 supports CATIA V5-6R2015 to CATIA V5-6R2018, as well as all versions of JT, up to and including10.0.

Theorem’s Visualize 3D products are aimed at creating visualization data for users of digital mock-up, virtual reality or desktop applications and for companies wanting to share JT data as part of a collaboration process.

This uni-directional product can be licensed with our JT to CATIA V5 product to create a bi-directional translator.

V22.0 enables the CATIA V5 user to create a JT representation of their data and supports the translation of assembly structure, geometry, attributes, 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) (FTA) (GD&T) and Metadata. It can also be used as a data exchange formatfor leading mechanical CAD/CAM systems which support JT.By efficiently and accurately creating PMI data it facilitates model based definition (MBD) processes.

Features of V22.0 also include:

  • The processing of CATIA V5 filled fonts will recreate the JT output using JT glyph-based text definitions, enabling the user to select the annotations to be automatically reoriented.
  • The comma “,” separator is now also supported alongside the period “.” character, when specifying numeric values in the Advanced Options field of the tess.Config file.
  • A new option in the Catia5Options section of the JT tess.config file allows the user to control the tolerance to be applied when processing generic fillet surfaces.

Using JT with additional 3D PMI data as part of a Model Based Definition process allows the user to reduce the overall design costs associated with the creation of conventional 2D drawings.

Sharing CATIA V5 data using the neutral ISO standard JT format allows organisations to protect the intellectual property of their designs while allowing users to explore the shape to more easily understand the 3D definition. The IP protection can be enhanced by restricting the JT representation to be tessellated data only.

Theorem’s strategic partnerships with Dassault Systemes and Siemens ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA V5 and JT, and Theorem’s Visualize 3D products, allowing Theorem to continue to provide data solutions for CATIA V5 users wanting to create JT data.
