Convert Your IGES CAD Files to GLB

Our free and fast tool will convert most IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) CAD files to a standard GLB (Graphics Language Transmission Format) 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 GLB file and will be ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the IGES to GLB conversion process, see the conversion information section below.

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 GLB file format, which can also have the GLTF file extension depending on whether the content is binary or text/JSON, is a 3D file format used to describe 3D worlds and, as such, contains geometric data such as vertices, faces, normals, animations, and other 3D scene-related data.

The format, described by its creators as the "JPEG of 3D", has gained in popularity and is supported by a wide range of 3D modeling applications such as Blender and MeshLab. The GLB format is an open standard that is maintained by the Khronos Group.

GLB Notes

If your original model file contains texture images and other texture-related data, these will be included in the final GLB file.
