LiteBox3D Desktop is a free, easy to use JT viewer based on the specification of the JT ISO standard.
LiteBox3D is a free, user-friendly JT viewer. Based on the specification of the JT ISO standard, PLMXML, STEP AP242 XML, OBJ, WRL and TIFF files can be accessed. This viewer, can be expanded with add-on applications for IP protection, model comparison and quality validation. LiteBox3D Pro extends the capabilities of the free viewer with features such as redlining, 3DHTML export and more. For a full list of the features, take a look below.
TECHNIA supports the CPO Initiative (Code of PLM Openness) and demonstrates with LiteBox3D that the JT format is an open ISO standard. LiteBox3D reads JT formats based on the specification of the JT ISO 14306:2012 and not using any vendor or re-engineered toolkits.
With direct access to the JT model based on the ISO description and 64 bit support, LiteBox3D enables the viewing of very large CAD models in JT format. Multithreading also ensures that files load quickly.
LiteBox3D is characterized by its user-friendliness. LiteBox3D is self-explanatory regarding its functions, users do not need any previous CAD knowledge for measuring, clipping and comparing assemblies.
To enable the exchange of information between the different applications, LiteBox3D has an integration interface based on JAVA Eclipse. Furthermore, there is a DDE interface to communicate with programs from third-party providers, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Standard settings for all users can be controlled globally by the administrator, making software distribution easy. Different versions of LiteBox3D can be installed on the same machine.
TECHNIA has been developing JT applications with a strong focus on customer benefits for 10 years. LiteBox3D is embedded in the Daimler supplier package. Suppliers have easy access to LiteBox3D and LiteComply and can therefore meet the requirements of the original equipment manufacturer as well as optimize their own processes.
The free version of LiteBox3D Desktop viewer may be used unlimited for commercial usage.
