A 3D part model is displayed with associated product manufacturing information (PMI) captured in the JT file format.

JT file format

Join the JT ecosystem and benefit from our openly published, ISO standard data format for 3D model visualization and collaboration. JT is also widely adopted as a format for data exchange, supplier collaboration and long-term data retention.

Why JT?

Discover JT, our openly published data format, widely used across manufacturing supply chains for sharing and visualizing 3D part and assembly models.

JT is accepted by ISO as International Standard for 3D visualization. Additionally, many adopters use JT as a process format in workflows such as data exchange, supplier collaboration and long-term data retention.
