Importing .JT and .STP and .step files?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have been contacted by a client who is asking if I can find a way to import a CAD file types that I've never seen before. The file types are .jt , .stp and .step files. There is a model that is in these formats and to do the project I need to find a way to get these into EIAS. Anyone know anything about these file formats?

The file that I'm told is a .jt does not used a .jt at the end of anything but rather it is folder filled with many files with all different names. I think this format saves out each part independently. Here is a example of a few of the first in a series of files.

17d20418-2m3_t3.prt.1

17d20418-2m3_t2.prt.1

17d20418-2m3_t1.prt.1

17d20420_t1.prt.1

12h7500.prt.1

0-140595-0.prt.1

_ug641fddcmub.prt.1

_83101067_s00_x00.prt.1

14_940_111_a_12_10.asm.1

17d20418-2m3_3.asm.1

10-00-4452-1285_s20_x00.prt.1

17d20418-2m3_2.asm.1

17d20418-2m3_1.asm.1

17d20418-2m3.asm.1

17_0-1_5_s20_x00.prt.1

10-40450-12s_s00_x00.prt.1

Anybody recognize this file format? Any thoughts on how to convert this to something useful would be greatly appreciated.

Hiya Bill,

.jt is an open source format used by Siemens and as far as I can tell is only used in high-end CAD systems such as those from Siemens, Dassault and AutoDesk (Invenotor).

stp/step would be your best bet. You can download one of the 15 day trails of ViaCAD3d/Pro and try the step import. ViaCAD outputs great .fac files. ViaCAD 2D/3D is only $99.

Hi Bill,

I've done all of them. For JT I've got a PolyTrans add-on, and STEP/STP can be done with a large number of applications, including ViaCAD mentioned above. Using FormZ for this, you would even be able to get the assembly hierarchy to FACT/EIAS.

The file that I'm told is a .jt does not used a .jt at the end of anything but rather it is folder filled with many files with all different names. I think this format saves out each part independently. Here is a example of a few of the first in a series of files.

This is a Pro/E assembly, not a JT file.
