Our free and fast tool will convert most IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) CAD files to a standard WRL (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) 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 WRL file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the IGES to WRL conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your IGES to WRL.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your IGES file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the IGES to WRL conversion has completed, you can download your WRL file straight away.
We aim to process all IGES to WRL 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 WRL file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our IGES to WRL 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 WRL 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 WRL file format is a 3D based model format originally created in the 1990's which was aimed at website usage. The format is text based and contains 3D geometry data such as vertices, faces, simple shapes and material information and more.
This format when launched was hoped to become a standard 3D format, however due to the large file sizes it didn't see wide spread adoption although it is a supported format within some CAD software applications. It was later superseded by the X3D file format which shares most of the functionality of WRL files.
WRL files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the WRL file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.
