IGES Export for AutoCAD is an IGES file export plug-in for AutoCAD. This plug-in gives AutoCAD the ability to export 3D solid objects in AutoCAD to a IGES file. IGES is a neutral file format which is widely used to exchange data between various CAD systems. IGES Export for AutoCAD reads 3D solid objects from the active AutoCAD drawing and exports them to a 3D IGES file which can then be imported into other CAD systems.
IGES Export for AutoCAD is powered by the widely used 3D InterOp technology from Spatial. 3D InterOp is the industry standard for proprietary and neutral CAD file format data exchange and is used in almost all the major CAD systems. Besides data exchange 3D InterOp also offers powerful repairing and healing features which are extensively used in IGES Export for AutoCAD. Repairing involves checking the file for corrupted data and fixing the invalid data. Healing corrects the differences in precision. IGES Export for AutoCAD also creates a detailed log file which is extremely useful in identifying data translation problems and aids in locating and fixing errors.
