Convert Your IGES CAD Files to DAE

Our free and fast tool will convert most IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) CAD files to a standard DAE (COLLADA - Collaborative Design Activity) 3D model file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing. Our conversion tool can also batch convert multiple IGES files; up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

To convert your IGES file, click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a DAE file and will be ready for download shortly afterwards.

Description

IGES is an open file format used within CAD applications as a means of saving data in a format that can be opened and edited in other CAD applications. Its roots can be traced back to the mid-1970s, when it was used by the United States Air Force.

The format itself is a human-readable text-based format and contains data that can represent many different CAD elements, such as points, lines, arcs, and much more. IGES files can be opened with many modern CAD applications, such as FreeCAD.

Description

The DAE format (also known as COLLADA) is a 3D file format used to describe 3D models, meshes, and 3D worlds using a simple text-based structure. The format was introduced in 2004 by Sony Computer Entertainment and is currently managed by the Khronos Group.

DAE files are a text/XML-based file format containing 3D geometric information used to describe 3D objects and meshes such as vertices, faces, animations, materials, camera/lighting elements, and other related metadata. The format has widespread usage and support, with applications such as Blender and MeshLab being able to read and write to it.

DAE Notes

Our tool will save any texture files separately; these additional files will be included with your final DAE file at the time of download.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Material colors
