In the Solidworks 2018 Beta, it was possible to open a JT (DirectModel) file into Solidworks. It could not be updated, but at least it could be opened. At that time I submitted a beta ticket, which was logged as SPR1035462: Native SW components mated to imported JT models do not adjust positioning when JT model is updated.
In the released 2018 SP0.1, it is not even possible to open a JT file. I would like to know if and when this beta capability will be restored. Can anyone advise?
