Inactive Structure


I have a specific JT File that when loaded in JT2Go has this behaviour:

Some part nodes are disabled and greyed out. When clicked an "Inactive Structure Warning" appears. "Unable to select or change visibility of inactive structure."

The only way to activate these nodes are through model views.


When importing this JT in the JT Open Toolkit, how are these nodes tagged as inactive and deactivated as default?

Hard to tell without seeing the file but this could be a default layer filter setting. If a JT file has a default layer filter setting from the CAD system it will load based on that setting in JT2Go.

What is JT?

JT is the World’s Most Widely Used 3D File Format for PLM

JT is the common language of PLM and is the world’s most widely used 3D format. JT is the first ISO International Standard ( IS 14306-1) for 3D visualization and collaboration. Compact and accurate, JT is used throughout the product development lifecycle in all major industries to communicate the critical design information typically locked up inside a CAD file.

Siemens PLM Software customers rely on JT to be the most robust 3D visualization format available.
