UGS, a global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, announced the immediate availability of the JT2Go™ solution, a set of no-cost 3D viewing products enabling companies to globally share 3D product and manufacturing data using the lightweight JT format JT2Go, downloadable to any desktop by visiting www.JT2Go.com. JT2Go provides a method of establishing instant compatibility with the huge install base of existing 3D JT data created by over 600,000 users worldwide. The JT format is the predominant 3D data standard for enabling product visualization and information sharing between PLM software applications. Lightweight JT files can be generated by all major computer-aided design (CAD) authoring systems—including UGS' NX™ and Solid Edge®—providing 3D data in a CAD-neutral format for high-performance viewing. Users can view images worldwide.
