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 ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the IGES to GLB conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your IGES to GLB.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your IGES file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the IGES to GLB conversion has completed, you can download your GLB file straight away.
We aim to process all IGES to GLB 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 GLB file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our IGES to GLB 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 GLB 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 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 modelling applications such as Blender and MeshLab. The GLB format is an open standard which is maintained by the Khronos Group.
