Cad Connectors and Converters

Connector for IGES ()

Connector for IGES imports Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES) data files to leverage it throughout the extended enterprise. After it is imported to the 3DS CGR format, IGES data can be managed with lifecycle controls and accessed during design and other downstream processes.

IGES is a neutral data format that allows the digital exchange of information among CAD systems. Using IGES, a CAD user can exchange product data models in the form of circuit diagrams, wireframe, freeform surface or solid modeling representations. Applications supported by IGES include traditional engineering drawings, models for analysis, and other manufacturing functions.

Connector for IGES enables reuse or migration of IGES data. IGES tessellated representations can be leveraged for design review, digital mockup review, and design in context. When exact IGES geometry is migrated, it can be used with 3DEXPERIENCE® applications for designing and simulating a product and its manufacturing processes.

Connector for IGES speeds innovation and improves quality by enabling users to share IGES files. For example, an OEM may receive a design in IGES files from suppliers and want to share the file with other stakeholders.
