Convert 3DM to IGES File

3DM to IGES ......

Below, you'll discover a compendium of resources dedicated to the interoperability and exchange of 3DM and IGES file formats. These will aid in the smooth conversion from 3DM to IGES file.

3DM Rhino File 3DM

The 3DM (Rhino) is a native file format for Rhinoceros software, which allows for the storage of a variety of 3D geometry data types, including smooth NURBS surfaces, triangular meshes, points, and curves. However, our Autoconverter software exports and saves only polygonal meshes in the 3DM files. In contrast, our Autoshaper product enables the export of NURBS solids, providing a precise representation of your 3D model. These invaluable 3DM file converters also offer the flexibility to save Rhino files in various 3DM file versions, ranging from Rhino 2.X to the most recent Rhino 8.X version.


The IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) file format serves as the foundational format for data exchange between various systems, including CAD, CAM, and CAE. Since IGES geometry data is stored in a text format, exporting triangular meshes with thousands or millions of faces using our Autoconverter software may result in larger file sizes. It’s important to note that while the IGES format supports color per assembly, it does not include an alpha component. Consequently, any transparency settings will be lost when saving your stunning 3D design in the IGES format.
