    bob z. has been assigned the task of converting a customer supplied
    model from .jt format to something a bit more friendly.

    obviously (or maybe not so), swx doesn't read this file directly. bob
    z. has never heard of this file format before, but if you read this,
    they make it seem like you can't live without it:

    bob z. needs to open this file and if any of you fine people out there
    have any ideas, please share with good ol' bob z.!

    p.s. it takes intelligence to find intelligence

    It is incredible that UGS thinks they can charge such fees to create
    their own
    The viewer for jt files IS free......see http://www.jt2go.ugs.com/

    The crappy bit is that you have to pay if you want to be able to measure the
    model.

    I used to use it with I-Deas and the files are reasonably compact.
    The nice thing is that UGS's 3 CAD products (NX, I-Deas, Edge) allow you to
    add jt files into an assembly directly, without conversion. It can
    therefore be used as a tool for making "super-lightweight" assemblies on
    very large projects. The Solidworks equivalent would be being able to add
    an e-drawing or into an assembly.
