JT2Go - Loading files onto iPad

The IOS viewer looks great with the sample files. How do we load real files to view?
Solid Edge Viewer appears under the apps tab in iTunes /file sharing and you can browse for your files.
JT2Go does not have this ability, nor a help screen to explain.
How will we know how big a file CAN be loaded on any particular tablet? There is no indication of relationship between free memory and file size.:confused:

JT2Go for iOS uses the standard iOS "Open in" functionality of iOS apps to load .jt files. This "Open in" functionality is found in many apps that are able to download and share files. Built in apps that can do this are the Mail app and Safari app. Simply download a .jt mail attachment in the Mail app, or download a .jt file in Safari, tap on the file, and when asked which app you'd like to open it in, select JT2Go. Other 3rd party apps that may be useful in getting jt files onto your device are such apps as Dropbox and FileExplorer.

There is no clear relationship between the file size of a jt file and the amount of RAM it will require when fully loaded. An upcoming version of JT2Go will include a warning to the user if a JT file that is loaded is close to exceeding the limit imposed by the device, but there is no way to tell this limit beforehand just from the file size.

The help screen for JT2Go can be accessed from the main menu button in the top right corner of the screen, then selecting "Help" from the menu list.

Thanks for the heads up. I am not too familiar with iOS - I only bought
the iPad for SE Viewer and this Siemens app works differently, it seems.
I have a large SEViewer file that crashes the iPad for low memory and
hoped that the JT viewer might fare better - the original file is a jt
exported from NX.

We have decided to include iTunes File Sharing support for loading JT files into the JT2Go for iOS app. This will be in the next version.

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.
