Convert Your IGES CAD Files to X3D

Our free and fast tool will convert most IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) CAD files to a standard X3D (Extensible 3D Graphics) 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 X3D file and will be ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the IGES to X3D 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 X3D file format was introduced in 2002 as a successor to the 3D VRML (WRL) file format. X3D files contain 3D mesh and model information defined using vertices, faces, normals, and material data, making them broadly as capable as the older VRML format.

X3D files are structured XML text-based files that allow full 3D scenes to contain models comprised of 3D mesh data and other simple shapes. There are browser extensions that allow X3D files to be directly embedded within HTML to allow rendering directly to a web page; however, the format has not seen widespread adoption.

X3D Notes

X3D files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information, our tool will attempt to save this in the X3D file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Mesh material colors
  • Vertex colors

Unsupported Features

  • Textures
