we have some projects that are developped by our RD with Siemens NX.
Can Composer imports them or a JT file ?
It would appear that no they can't be opened.... See the last page of the pdf for Supported File Formats
Do you know another software like 3DVIA Composer that make documentations like manuals or spare parts catalog ?
Our big company has different CAD package, located in different location that develop different machines, but we share, when possible the same compoenents.
Who make documentation are some people that work for all, then I'm looking for one software like composer that support more CAD package.
I just spoke to some engineers last week using a product called DocuMoto. They just started with it and plan on using it as an online parts catalog and for owners' manuals. As for import options their website simply states "all major formats". Here is a link to their product.
Look at Anark....
Thank you to all for the support and suggestions.
Gianluca, You'll find that Theorem Solutions provides a JT Converter that acts as a Plug-In to SW Composer. This will allow you to open JT files directly into SW Composer much as you would a SW file.
What (if any) would be the best file format for someone using Siemens NX to save and send to a SW user to be able to have an editable part (keep all design features)?
NX has the most ridiculously archaic and painful export features of any software I have ever seen. Siemens did not improve anything. I cannot say more without swearing.
We use STEP files form NX, but they are a bear to get out. Make sure they step them out as solids or you won't be able to open them in SolidWorks. You obviously will not get a feature tree.
If you want a feature tree, there is a company in Spokane, WA called TTI that I think can do it for you.
have to ask,... since NX and SolidWorks are both native Parasolid,.. why are you not saving out in the native Parasolid (x_b or x_t) format?
Good question. The short answer: these get brought into other programs and STEP is the most generic. However, if they are making files for me, I will try to get them as in a Parasolid. Thanks for the tip.
Oh, a very old question. First time i realize it.
There is a possibility to Import JT! Theorem www.theorem.com/Publish3D/Composer.htm offers such an importer. The Software integrates in Composer so you are able to open JT Files directly within Composer. Meta-properties will be imported too.
Dirk, that software costs $4000 (plus $1000 for maintenance) just to import one file type. I can get full programs that will import those files for that kind of money, and still do other stuff to boot.
Todd, thats correct, but there was no question for the price. Only "is there an possibility" and this is actual an possibility for the Composer.
Ist expansive, but possible!
