The JT writer allows developers to export the Assembly, B-rep, View data from Publish to JT. The file extensions that you can create when you export the data are:
The assembly structure including coloring and transformations will be exported to the JT file. Instances are currently replaced by object copy. The export is currently to a single monolithic file.
When we export the B-rep it will always be in Parasolid B-rep. If the format was not a Parasolid-based format then all surfaces get mapped to one of the following:
- B-spline surface
- Revolution surface
- Swept surface
...and curves to one of the following:
- 3D curve
- UV curve
If the source data was originally XT then HOOPS Publish will take that data and use it for the B-rep definition.
The tessellation is exported in a lossless, compressed format. Wireframes are not currently exported.
Views are supported by our JT file writer.
All supported PMI is exported to one of the following types.
- Datum feature symbol
- Generic PMI
- Surface finish (roughness)
HOOPS Publish exports JT files as version 8.1 or 9.5.
Export options specific to JT
The following options are supported for JT export:
|WriteGeomTessMode||0, 1, or 2||B-rep only, B-rep+Tessellation, or Tessellation only|
|WriteHiddenObjects||true or false|
The current limitations include:
- No support for wireframes export.
- PMI text is exported in tessellated form.
- No support of texture, light, or shader data.
- Instances are currently exported as a part copy.
