Processing multiple transform attributes from a Plant simulate .JT file

Hi all,

I'm reading a plant simulate JT file and some assemblies are at the wrong location, compared to JT2Go.


These assemblies have several transform so, as indicated by the documentation, I combine these matrices and still get wrong position and scales.


My question is:

is there something special I need to do with these transform attributes ?

How do I identify the assemblies on wich I need to make this special action ?

Is there a rule of thumbs in Plant simulate case ?



In details:

One of these assemblies contains 4 transforms, trial and errors showed that the correct position is one of the transforms position BUT the other 3 transforms are : a unit matrix, the 2 other ones just don't make sens regardin the result in JT2GO.


Thanks for any hint.




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.
