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.
PAR is a CAD format that generates 3D object layouts. Solid Edge, a 3D CAD system from Siemens Digital Industries Software, uses the .par extension for its part files, including their geometric forms, appearance, and structural elements.
The PAR file can be combined with other Solid Edge parts to a single assembly (ASM file).
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
