Data Format - IGES

Purpose and General Description

IGES, the Initial Graphics Exchange Specification, is a widely used CAD data exchange specification. However, IGES is a very complex specification and fully utilizing IGES data files requires expert knowledge of the format. An overview of the IGES validation service at NIST is available.

Many CAD systems import and export IGES including systems from Parametric Technology Solutions / Computervision.

It is also possible to convert

  • IGES to VRML.
