Theorem’s latest Visualize 3D product for SolidWorks- JT supports SolidWorks 2016

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest version of our Visualize 3D SolidWorks-JT product.

V19.4 supports SolidWorks 2014, 2015 and 2016 along with Jtk 8.0.0.

Our Visualize 3D products are aimed at creating visualization data for users of digital mock-up, virtual reality or desktop applications.

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 SolidWorks data using the neutral ISO standard JT format allows organisations to protect the intellectual property of their designs while allowing users to explore the shape, and more easily understand the 3D definition. The IP protection can be enhanced by restricting the JT representation to be tessellated data only.

Enabling SolidWorks users to create high quality JT files enables them to share JT data with their customers and suppliers, facilitating collaboration.

SolidWorks and JT data can now be further utilised in Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality by using our Visualization Experiences App for Digital Realities.

Our strategic partnerships with Dassault Systemes and Siemens ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of SolidWorks, JT, and Theorem’s Visualize 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide data solutions for SolidWorks users wanting to create JT data.

Our Visualize 3D products are aimed at creating visualization data for users of digital mock-up, virtual reality or desktop applications.

This uni-directional product can be licensed with our JT to Creo product to create a bi-directional translator.

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 Creo data using the neutral ISO standard JT format allows organisations to protect the intellectual property of their designs while allowing users to explore the shape, and more easily understand the 3D definition. The IP protection can be enhanced by restricting the JT representation to be tessellated data only.

Enabling Creo users to create high quality JT files enables them to share JT data with their customers and suppliers, facilitating collaboration.

Creo and JT data can now be further utilised in Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality using Theorem’s Visualization Experiences App for Digital Realities.

Theorem’s latest CADverter supports CATIA V5 R26 and NX 11

We are pleased to announce the release of our latest CADverter for CATIA V5 > NX users.

Integrated within the CATIA application, V19.4 supports CATIA V5 R19, R21, V5-6R2012- V5-6R2016 as well as NX 9.0, NX 10 and NX 11.

V19.4 also offers new support for PDF Add-On Licensing and updated CATIA V5 Import and Export menus to utilise Unified Interface configurations.

This uni-directional CADverter can also be licensed with our NX > CATIA V5 CADverter to create a bi-directional translator.

CADverter products translate assembly structure, geometry, attributes and, where available, 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) and Metadata between CATIA V5 and NX, supporting Model Based Definition (MBD) processes.

The aim of the CADverter is to allow the user to translate any data that they have held in a CATIA format and make it useable in NX for various use cases, whether the downstream user wants a lightweight reference part to model around, or a precise copy of the data translated to allow measurement and editing of translated models.

Our strategic partnerships with Dassault Systemes and Siemens ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA V5 and NX, and Theorem’s CADverter products, allowing us to continue to provide data solutions for the CAD community.

Theorem release V19.4 of JT-3D PDF from the Publish 3D product range

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest JT-3D PDF product from the Publish 3D range, with new and improved product features and enhancements, and support for JTK 8.5.

V19.4 has improved support for attribute information and exploded views, an improved PLMXML data read and improved handling of associated PMI.

Our Publish 3D – 3D PDF products enable the publishing of JT data directly into the interactive 3D PDF document format.

The published PDF document contains embedded interactive 3D representations of the native JT data (within pre-defined templates), offering greater levels of Intellectual Property (IP) protection, with support for separate passwords to control the editing of the 3D PDF output.

The inclusion of Theorem’s Unified Interface (UI) in V19.4 provides the opportunity for multiple PDF publishing from a single data source using the selection of ready-made templates, or the option of our consultancy services to create bespoke templates. Our UI helps the development and streamlining of translation and downstream processes by allowing engineering data to be filtered, viewed, interrogated, manipulated and translated interactively or in batches with the ability to publish user specific documentation.

The Publish 3D product supports Model Based Definition (MBD) and 3D annotations and dimensions (PMI) from JT into the 3D PDF format.

Anybody with access to the freely available Adobe Reader®, either on a PC, tablet or smartphone can access the interactive 3D data and are able to view, mark up and interrogate the document without the use of specialist CAD software, and as 3D PDF is an ISO standard (ISO 24517-1 (PDF/E), the technology can be easily integrated and can effectively become the protocol for easy, seamless document creation and communication.

Our strategic partnership with Siemens ensures that there is a parallel development between the latest releases of JT, and Theorem’s Publish 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide 3D publishing solutions for the JT community.
