JTOpen API to open existing jt file


Hello Experts,


I want to open an existing jt file and add a text to it using JT Open API. Is this possible ? Please give me some hints (sample code) to do it.


Thank you in advance.





Re: JTOpen API to open existing jt file


Hello everyone, I figured out how to open an existing JT using API 


JtkEntityPtr<JtkCADImporter> importer;
importer = JtkEntityFactory::createCADImporter();


JtkEntityPtr<JtkHierarchy> root;
root = importer->import( "<jt path>");


and to create PMI

// Note
JtkEntityPtr<JtkPMINote> note = ( JtkPMINote* )JtkEntityFactory::createPMI( JtkEntity::JtkPMINOTE, child );
double noteOrigin[ 3 ] = { 0, 10, 0 };
double noteBottomRight[ 3 ] = { -1, 10, 0 };
double noteTopLeft[ 3 ] = { 0, 10, 1 };
note->setVisualFrame( noteOrigin, noteBottomRight, noteTopLeft );
double arTxtBox[ ] = { -10, -1, 10, 0, 0, 1 };
note->addVisualTextData( "top view", arTxtBox, 1, 0, 0 );




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.
