Can not open exported igs file in viewers

Post by battila » Thu Nov 26, 2020 11:21 pm

Hi All,

Our CAD application exports it's current 3D model to igs file format as XML.
Lately I checked it and could not find a viewer that can read this. Unfortunately none of the viewers gave me a clue where the syntax or semantic error is in my example file. It contains only 1 wall.
Any help is appreciated.

Best regards,
Attila

Are you opening it in Indigo? Or some other application?

Thanks for the fast reply and maybe you solved my problem with your question only.
I have just installed Indigo and it opens correctly. I was googling for "free igs viewer" and the three first applications were not opening it. I suppose the file format is different only the extension is the same. I was also mislead by our partner.

Thanks.
Attila

Hi battila!
what do you exactly mean with "our cad application" ?
Are you a user of ArchlineXP or rather a programmer?
I opened your file and I read this:
<mesh>
<uid>8</uid>
<name>ArchLINE Mesh</name>
...

bye
