IGES to BricsCAD Conversion

Here is a list of valuable resources, complete with step-by-step instructions and expert advice for converting IGES files to BricsCAD format using our converters. Check them out now to expedite your IGES files conversion later.


IGS Initial Graphics Exchange File

A file format widely used in the fields of CAD (Computer-Aided Design), CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing), and CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering), as it enables to transfer of 3D models and designs across different platforms and applications. It has the following features:

  • Text Format: IGES uses a text format to store geometry data, which means it can be easily readable and editable. However, this also means that IGES files can become very large when exporting complex shapes or meshes with many faces.
  • Color Support: The IGES format supports color per assembly, enhancing the visual appeal of your 3D designs.
  • Transparency Settings: One limitation of the IGES format is the absence of an alpha component. This means that any transparency settings in your 3D design will be lost when saved in the IGES format.
  • IGES Converters: Autoconverter supports IGES format for reading and writing, however it can only work with triangulated mesh geometry. If you need to preserve smooth IGES surfaces you should use Autoshaper instead.

DWG BricsCAD Drawing

Bricsys's BricsCAD is a significant player in the Computer Aided Design (CAD) software landscape. It offers a compelling alternative to other CAD software, with its ability to keep pace with the latest DWG file format. It has the following features:

  • DWG Compatibility: The ability to read and write the latest DWG file format, which is the native format of AutoCAD and supported by many other CAD applications. DWG files can store 2D and 3D geometry data, as well as project metadata, such as layers, blocks, dimensions, etc.
  • BricsCAD Plug-ins: Automesher Application and Automapki Application plug-ins for BricsCAD allow you to import and export 3D and GIS data from various external file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, SHP, KML, etc. This enhances the interoperability of BricsCAD with other design tools and platforms.
  • ObjectBRX Technology: The customization technology for BricsCAD provided by Bricsys, which we use to develop our BricsCAD plug-ins. This ensures optimal integration with the BricsCAD environment and efficient translation of your external file formats, making BricsCAD an even more powerful tool for design professionals.
