What are the best IGES export settings to use in my CAD system?

If you have problems reading IGES files into FormingSuiteĀ®, try changing the IGES export settings used in your CAD system. In SolidWorks, we find that the NURBS option works best. In CATIA V5, the B-Spline surfaces seem to work most reliably. In other systems, a little experimentation should yield consistent results.

If you continue to have difficulty with IGES, or if you don't have access to CAD and often receive native CAD data, you may also consider adding direct translators to your FormingSuite license. These are available for a variety of CAD systems including CATIA V4 and V5, Pro/E, UG/NX, SolidWorks, Parasolid, Inventor, etc.
