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.
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.
