Learn how to convert IGS to Topsolid with CAD Exchanger
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.
TopSolid is a completely integrated CAD/CAM software which was created by the French company Missler Software. It is based on the geometric kernel ParaSolid. As it is fully integrated, it allows users to design and manufacture parts using the same software. There is a wide range of Topsolid industry solutions: from the more general, mechanically oriented (TopSolid’Design) to specific solutions.
Actually, there is a whole line of CAM products: mechanical machining (TopSolid’Cam), sheet metal (TopSolid’Sheetmetal), wood (TopSolid’WoodCam), wire electroerosion (TopSolid’Wire). TopSolid also incorporates additional modules: a 2D draft module (TopSolid’Draft) and a structural computation one (TopSolid’Fea).
TopSolid'Cam, one of the main products of Topsolid, manages multi axis machining such as 5 axis machining, mill turn operations, twin Spindle and twin turret technology.
TopSolid 7 is claimed to simplify the design and modification of large assemblies in an organized and structured environment.
Need to work with CAD files in numerous formats? No worries.
From IGS to Topsolid, CAD Exchanger gets you covered.
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
