Why use the STEP to JT Translator

Theorem’s STEP <> JT translator is designed for CAD/CAM users who receive STEP files, but who have selected JT to be their visualization system. To work with the received data, users have the requirement to translate their STEP data into the JT format, or who need to send JT files to customers or suppliers.

The JT  visualization format can be used as the 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 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.

Using the STEP to JT translator

The STEP to/from JT CADverter is a bi-directional translator that is available in licensed packages to support either STEP AP242, AP214 or AP203 data to be translated to or from the Siemens PLM JT file format.

It 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.

The STEP to JT translator can be used in a variety of ways:
  • The JT output can be configured to write a combination of precise BREP geometry as well as tessellated representations using standard JT configuration file settings.
  • Optional licensing enables either STEP AP242, AP214 or AP203 data formats to be supported.
  • The process can be invoked directly from a command line interface or alternatively invoked from the standard CADverter Unified Interface which support batch processing functionality.
  • The command line interface allows the process to be integrated into all workflows, including integrating the translator within a document or product lifecycle management system.
  • The CADverter Unified Interface enables casual users to make effective use of the product without needing to remember complex command syntax. Predefined translator configurations that retain selected translator options can also be employed to ensure all users follow company standards for translator settings.
  • Uses standard FLEXlm licensing technology
  • An additional annual support contract is available ensuring limited product down time and ongoing compatibility with all source applications.
