VCollab, a provider of CAE visual collaboration solutions, has added the ability to convert files into JT data format to its VCollab platform. Users can convert files from NX, ANSYS, MSC Software, CD-adapco, and nCode applications.
Not only does VCollab export the 3D models, but it also includes the CAE BOM (bill of materials), simulation result contour and associated legend in the JT format. To create this solution, the company used the JT Open Toolkit from Siemens PLM Software.
“Simulation has become a strategic tool in many organizations,” said Prasad Mandava, CEO of VCollab. “With the option to create JT models in addition to the CAX models, simulation results can now be communicated to even more people involved in product development. Simulation reports are no longer restricted to 2D images either, bringing them more in line with today’s 3D processes.”
