Convert IGES to XYZ File

IGES to XYZ ......

Listed below are additional resources pertaining to the interoperability and exchange of IGES and XYZ files. These will be valuable in guiding you through the IGES to XYZ file conversion.


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.

XYZ Point Cloud File XYZ

The XYZ (Point cloud data) file extension is used for ASCII text files that contain point cloud data. Each row in an XYZ file consists of 3D point coordinates, typically separated by a special character like a TAB. Optionally, the XYZ file may also include 3D normal vector coordinates for each point. Our primary XYZ file converter, Autoconverter software, can automatically reconstruct mesh surfaces from point cloud data. Additionally, Autoshaper software, another one of our XYZ file converters, allows for the reconstruction of smooth NURBS surfaces from scattered points stored in the XYZ file. It’s worth noting that point cloud data may also use alternative file extensions such as ASC or TXT.
