Convert IGES to OBJ File

IGES to OBJ ......

Find below an assortment of resources that delve into the interoperability and exchange of IGES and OBJ files. These will prove beneficial in the process of converting from IGES to OBJ file.


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.


The OBJ (Alias Wavefront Object) is a text-based file format that is widely used for 3D geometry objects across various 3D software programs. The OBJ file format can store named group objects, surface materials with transparent colors and texture images, and geometry primitives in the form of quads or triangles. However, it’s important to note that during the OBJ file conversion using our Autoconverter software, any quad primitives will be simplified into two triangles, as only triangular facets are supported. Additionally, due to its textual format, OBJ files tend to have larger sizes compared to binary file formats like 3DS (3D Studio) or SKP (SketchUp).
