Theorem’s CATIA V5 <> JT translator is designed for companies using CATIA V5 who have selected JT to be their main method of collaboration and communication between themselves and their customers and suppliers. Collaborating using visualization data helps to secure the intellectual property (IP) of the original CATIA V5 3D designs whilst enabling its re-use in downstream activities reducing potential business risks.
JT visualization data supports a rich enough set of design data that suppliers have all of the information required to progress the product design to manufacture and then eventually to market. Using lightweight visualization data helps to simplify the entire process, improving communication and opens access to data and information that previously would only have been available to ‘Engineering’ departments.
The CATIA V5 <> JT CADverter is a direct database translator between the Dassault Systemes CATIA V5 Modelling Application and the Siemens PLM JT file format.
The product can be licensed as either a single uni-direction product for CATIA V5 to JT or JT to CATIA V5. Alternatively, a bi-directional license package is available which supports both directions of translation, dependent upon requirements.
There are also specific individual versions available for use by either Ford and Daimler Suppliers - please contact us for details.
The CATIA V5 <> JT translator enables the user to convert all forms of 3D Mechanical Design Geometry and Assembly data, together with system defined attribute information and colour information, between these two systems.
Theorem’s CATIA V5 to JT Translator
For companies needing to translate CATIA V5 data Theorem provide two technology solutions, both use Dassault Systeme api tools which are supported by Dassault, they are the CAA and Interop API’s. Being supported by Dassault means data compatibility is assured, along with back up support from the vendor.

Our CATIA V5 products which use Dassault’s CAA libraries link to and require access to a V5 license in order to run. As such that enables them to be run directly inside V5 with an interactive “save as” capability, as well as being able to run in batch mode and linked to PLM.
Our CATIA V5 products which use Dassault’s Interop libraries do not need a separate V5 license to run, as such they provide an independent self-contained solution for companies who do not have a CATIA V5 system installed or access to a license. They can be run interactively using the CADverter GUI or in batch mode and linked to PLM.
