IAM

An IAM file is an assembly model created with Inventor CAD and engineering software by Autodesk.

The IAM format comprises parts and subassemblies linked through assembly relationships. A subassembly in an IAM file is a self-contained unit with its collection of parts.

The .iam extension of an Autodesk Inventor Assembly Data File can be viewed using the following software: Autodesk Inventor / Inventor View, and Spaceclaim Engineer software. Autodesk Viewer web application and Fusion 360 integrated CAD / CAM / CAE software environment can import and render an assembly model created with Inventor.

IGS

An IGS extension (Initial Graphics Exchange) is a 2D or 3D CAD vector file that can store wireframes, surfaces, solids, etc. IGS is mainly used for exchanging CAD drawings based on the Initial IGES (Graphics Exchange Specification) format.

The IGS file structure is based on the ASCII text-based format, which is used in numerous CAD software applications for delivering high-end graphics.

Among CAD applications that support IGS extension are Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Fusion 360, Dassault Systemes CATIA, and Autodesk Inventor.
