PLM Vis Web

Equip your users with interactive viewing of JT parts in a browser with PLM Vis Web - an SDK for embedding 3D graphics in a web page that you design.

A 3D model is displayed in a browser. The parts are defined using the JT file format and the graphics are embedded in a customizable browser using PLM Vis Web.

Why PLM Vis Web?

Embed graphics in your web page design and provide interactive view, measure and mark-up of JT parts to your community of users. End-users don’t need to install any software, only a javascript enabled web browser is needed.

This technology supports a variety of use cases, including adding visualization to online catalogs and advanced functionality to support engineers, all without needing to install any client software.
