How to Open a JT File

How to Open a JT File

JT is an unusual CAD file format which regularly causes some confusion amongst CAD users. This article will overview the JT format, explain what makes this format so unique, and show how to open a JT file. The JT Format JT is a CAD file format provided by Siemens PLM Software. JT stands for Jupiter Tessellation, which points to the fact that JT files are tessellated, or polygonal – also known as Viz-Rep, for ‘Visual Representation’; but what’s interesting about JT files is that they can also contain precise, CAD Brep geometry. So to be clear, JT files can contain both polygonal and CAD geometry. But, but in our experience, JT files only contain CAD Brep...
Do You Have These Production Bottlenecks?

Do You Have These Production Bottlenecks?

Normally, we think of production bottlenecks as occurring on the production floor; but there are upstream processes which can delay production as well as adversely affecting manufacturing, quality assurance and scrap. CAD Viewing The inability for all project stakeholders to view and interact with CAD model data can become a production bottleneck, because 3D part and assembly models give the entire team a window into the project which could trigger necessary interventions early in the production process, before they become prohibitively expensive. CAD Viewers and 3D PDFs – This doesn’t mean all stakeholders need a full CAD seat, however; they might just...
