Learn how to convert PAR to IGES with CAD Exchanger
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).
IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) was among first vendor-neutral CAD formats designed to enable interoperability between different CAD systems. The latest versions of IGES have been approved by ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and published by US PRO (U.S. Product Data Association). The latest officially approved version of the IGES standard is version 5.3 which was published in 1996. Nonetheless, IGES remains a broadly used format (along with STEP) supported by all major CAD/CAM/CAE systems such as CATIA, Autodesk Inventor, Solidworks, Solid Edge, NX, Pro/Engineer, Creo and multiple others. IGES files usually have *.igs or *.iges file name extensions.
Need to work with CAD files in numerous formats? No worries.
