Custom Visualization in a Browser

by Siemens Visionary Siemens Visionary on ‎11-02-2016 06:47 PM

The latest release ( of the PLM Vis toolkit (VTK 1215) includes JavaScript components along with the traditional Java Beans, Active X and SWT Widgets.  This means that PLM Vis customers can now build custom web based viewers. The only requirement is that the browser support WebGL. This is great news for PLM customers that want the ultimate convenience of a web based application for both desktop and mobile users. All current PLM Vis customers will recieve the JavaScript components at no extra charge.


There is a nice example of a JT web viewer on the JT Showcase page.

This is very very cool. The samples do not include opening a .PDF file and .CGM can they be added to the samples ? Is GTAC support available for this viewer ?

Hi, the viewers on the showcase page are built using the PLM Vis toolkit - you can also download and use the JT2Go viewer from that page. GTAC supports the PLM Vis toolkit and also supports the JT2Go viewer if your company is a member of the JTOpen program. If your company is not a member of the program, then the viewer is supported on this Community site..

Above is the structure of the PLM Vis Web and the samples demo only opening 3D JT data. We are looking for sample code to open 2D ( .CGM & .PDF ) data in the PLM Vis Web viewer. Does the PLM Vis Web viewer support opening 2D data ?

PLM Vis is a toolkit that has several different types of components.  The "showcase" page that John referenced is using the JavaScript component that only supports 3D (JT) data at this time.

Hello Jay,

Thank you for your response. I attended your JT2Go presentations at the PLM World 2016. Thank you for sharing info.


Brief description of the problem that we are trying to solve 


We have very old web application that is currently using 'ActiveCGM'  Active X control to view .CGM files. We are looking to replace that Active X CGM viewer with another viewer where we can visualize 2D ( .cgm, .pdf ) and 3D ( .jt ) data for the enterprise.


Question on Javascript PLMVisWeb toolkit :


If 2D data viewing is not supported are there any plans to add this feature to the JavaScript API ?


What is your recommendation ? ( java API vs javaScript API )

The Java components do support 2D viewing, however they require a local install.  The JavaScript component will support 2D files (.cgm, .pdf) in the future (2018).

Hi Jay,


Thank you for your response. That's perfect for us. We are currently in the process of upgrading to teamcenter 11 , NX11, Vis 11 and planning to deploy in 2018.


Your feedback/recommendation is very valuable.
