Convert IGES file

IGS IGES File

IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) is the initial file format for the data exchange between different systems e.g. CAD, CAM or CAE. As the geometry data are stored in a text file format, you will get bigger file sizes when exporting triangular meshes with thousands of faces using Autoconverter software. The IGES file format supports color per assembly, but without the alpha component, therefore any transparency setting will be lost in the IGES file.


X3D X3D File

X3D (Extensible 3D) is an open source and royalty free XML based file format developed and maintained by the Web3D Consortium to store two or three dimensional models together with the other visualization data e.g. light source, viewport info, camera properties, special effects and more. The X3D file format becomes an advanced extension and actually the replacement for the original VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) file format used mostly by the WEB applications. The Autoconverter and Automesher Application are our X3D file converters which allow you to import and export mesh entities from the X3D file. To optimize file size the binary X3DB file can be used instead of a default text based X3D file. The shapes in X3D files are always defined in meters therefore our X3D converters will make the necessary units conversion if required.
