IGES

IGES, the Initial Graphics Exchange Specification, is a vendor-independent CAD/CAM data exchange format published by the U.S. Department of Commerce, National Institute of Science and Technology (formerly the National Bureau of Standards). The goal of the specification is to allow exchange of product definition data between CAD/CAM systems. Specifically: geometric data, annotation, and administrative or product identification data.

Since different systems do not support the same entities in the same way, some visual differences may occur. Even on identical CAD systems, parts from IGES files may differ from their original format because many CAD systems have more functionality than is supported by IGES. For example, GMSWorks supports 16 colors, IGES supports only eight: when saving a part in IGES format, some color information may be lost (in this case the 16 GMSWorks colors are mapped into their nearest IGES equivalents).


DXF

The new release supports AutoCAD 2000, output of solid entities, docmode entities, and much more.

Output options are:

  • ASCII format
  • Binary format
  • AutoCAD release
  • 3-D output
  • Output of dimension type geometry

VDA

There is a VDA to IGES translator available (VDA2IGS). This program converts VDA data after some analysis into standard IGES format.

Brandnew is a IGES to VDA translator (IGS2VDA). This program coverts IGES data into VDA format.

STL

Output can be created from both solid bodies and sheets. Solid bodies and sheets are created as result of STL input.

HPGL

The HPGL data translator creates GMSWorks entities from HPGL plot
files.

EDM

The EDM2DXF batch converter allows to convert edm programs into 2-d dxf data format.
