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 ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the IGES to DAE conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your IGES to DAE.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your IGES file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the IGES to DAE conversion has completed, you can download your DAE file straight away.
We aim to process all IGES to DAE conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the IGES file you submit to us. The resulting DAE file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our IGES to DAE tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our IGES conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
Yes! Our IGES tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 IGES files at a time. Our tool will convert them all as quickly as possible. Once completed, you can either download the DAE files individually or download them all in a single Zip file.
|Full Name||Initial Graphics Exchange Specification|
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-1970's where is 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, arc's and much more. IGES files can be opened with many modern CAD applications such as FreeCAD.
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 the format.
DAE files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the DAE file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.
