Since the JT open standard became ISO certified in 2012 and then ISO-revised in 2017, the 3D data format, many, if not most, CAD programs have adopted JT functionality.

JT is a standardized 3D data format used for product visualization, collaboration, CAD data exchange, and sometimes for long-term data retention. The JT file format can store an arbitrary number of faceted representations with varying levels of detail. It can contain any combination of data, including NURBS surfaces, product and manufacturing information (PMI), and metadata, either exported from native CAD systems or inserted into product data management systems.

ISO JT V2 , the revised ISO standard, includes the incorporation of a STEP B-rep as an additional B-rep segment.

The open standard came to mind in light of the Theorem Solutions announcement of it’s release of V20.3, part of the Visualize 3D product suite. The visualization product supports Creo 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 along with JT 10.0. Theorem has a strategic partnerships with PTC and Siemens that ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of Creo and JT, and Theorem’s Visualize 3D products, allowing Theorem to continue to provide data solutions for Creo users wanting to create JT data.
