JTTK 8.0, Can't import SOME .JT files


Good day.


With the JTTK 8.0, it is not possible to import some specific JT files (can't open). This problem only occurs for JT files that are processed by a tool from one of our costumers.


JT Utilities (like jtattribute.exe) also cannot open this specific files. For the record, older versions of JT Utilities CAN open this same files, however, with the latest JT Utilities 10.0 this is not possible.


This jt files can be opened by teamcenter or any other JT viewer.



Any hint on this problem?

Thanks in advance

Is this a standalone .jt file or is it split in sub JT files ?

Re: JTTK 8.0, Can't import SOME .JT files


This are monolithic JTs, so single .JTs


This kind of JTs have been processed by a tool, that add some attributes to the file. The file can be opened normally with Teamcenter, NX, or older versions of JT Toolkit /JT Utilities. However with the latest JT Toolkit  (8.0) or the JT Utilities 10.0 (which I assume use the same libary versions) the import always fails.


Is there any way to check what makes this JTs different? or why the latest version of JtTk fails to import them?


Thanks and greetings

Hi PedroS,

Did you find any hint on this issue ?



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.
