Theorem Releases Visualize 3D CATIA V5-JT v20.2

STAFFORDSHIRE, UK, Feb 13, 2018 – Theorem Solutions has announced the release of the latest Visualize 3D CATIA V5 to JT product. V20.2 supports CATIA V5 R19, R20, R21 and CATIA V5-6R2015 to CATIA V5-6R2017, as well as all versions of JT, up to and including 10.0.

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.

V20.2 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 format for leading mechanical CAD/CAM systems which support JT. By efficiently and accurately creating PMI data it facilitates Model Based Definition (MBD) processes.

V20.2 also includes:

  • Added support for writing JT Moniker attributes to JT output
  • Improvements to large assembly processing (LAP) for V5-JT
  • Added support for environment variables in config files
  • V5-JT export process now supports the creation of the assembly structure using PLMXML format file for the assembly
  • The Theorem UI is supported for both interactive and batch processing of translations external to the V5 application

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 organizations 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.

Their 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 us to continue to provide data solutions for CATIA V5 users wanting to create JT data.
