Verify Your JT Data to Prevent Any Possible Errors and Rework
Elysium develops CADdoctor for JT, a tool to verify JT data in conformity with customer-specific standards.
JT file format is the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standard format for viewing and sharing lightweight 3D product information, which is, in recent years, growing rapidly in popularity worldwide, especially for data exchange in multi-CAD environment such as supplier integration.
On the other hand, following issues arise when exchanging data in JT format;
- Unable to open data from the supplier because it is invalid
- Attributes do not comply with the company-defined rules
- Data does not comply with specified LOD (Levels of Detail) settings
- Data contains the display elements (LOD) only, and not the exact geometry (XT B-rep)
Therefore, it is essential for maximum utilization of JT data to define the requirements on data from other divisions and suppliers, and establish a workflow to verify JT data to ensure that the data comply with the standards and ready for the data distribution.
