Integrated within the CATIA V5 application, V21.3 supports CATIA V5-6R2015 to CATIA V5-6R2018, and all versions of JT, up to and including 10.0. CATIA V5 Multi-CAD to JT is unidirectional product, but can be packaged with Theorem’s JT to CATIA V5 Multi-CAD to become a bi-directional translator.
Newly developed features and enhancements in V21.3 include CATIA V5 transparency replicated in JT output. The benefit of maintaining an equivalent view of the CATIA V5 data in JT saves time and money that would otherwise be used to support additional communication between CAD users and non-CAD users, or to deploy expensive CAD licences to downstream teams.
Improvements to PMI/geometry cross highlighting in JT output have also been implemented. Having an ability to highlight which specific pieces of geometry are related to which dimension ensures that the information is unambiguous, leading to a reduction in costly output reworking when the information is misunderstood.
In a further enhancement, CATIA V5 section views defined within FTA captures are now exported to the JT file. Having a capability to retain these section views in the JT output again ensures that the person reviewing the information has a clear understanding of the definition. This functionality all goes towards avoiding costly mistakes that occur when the information is not clearly understandable.
