How to save solid catia to .iges file design

By lan dos on 18 Apr 06:22 4 answers 431 views 0 comments

Hye. I'm working on some work with third party (supplier).
I've been given the .iges file. But when i opened with VA One, the part is not solid. The supplier told me the design should be solid.

So, may i know how to save .iges file so that it can be solid part and not just a surface?

    Just click on Save as Menu ( In Both Solidworks & Catia It's located at the upper left side of the Working Interface) > Change File ( Save type ) from .SldProduct or .Sldpart to IGES/Igs & then Save it.

    For that you have to first open the file in solidworks because it is easy to open ijes format in solidworks

    Bro
    IGES and STEP are the widely used neutral CAD formats and accepted in all software. In IGES the output is in surfaces while STEP file keeps the assembly hierarchy and output is a mixture of solids/volumes and surfaces (only solids in most of the cases.

    It’s easy to save in CATIA any format that you want, parts or entire assembly in formats like .stl, .igs, .model, .stp, 3dmap, 3dxml, .cgr, .wrl, etc.
