What is IGS file?

An IGS file is a 2D or 3D vector image stored according to the Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES) standard that is used by many CAD systems to exchange 3D models. A file stores model data in ASCII text format and can be opened in several appropriate programs. In addition to the .IGS extension such files can also have the .IGES extension.

More information

The IGS ( or IGES) format is an ASCII text format that was approved in 1979 by the U.S. National Bureau of Standards as a standard for exporting and importing 3D models from one drawing program to another. One of the unique features of the IGES standard is that it was the first ANSI standard to document itself. Since version 4.0, all technical illustrations for the printed version of the standard were generated from IGES files.
