I need to feed IGES files into AutoCad 2005. Since DXF supports 3-D data (as I've checked myself), I assume it is possible. Any reliable little tool to do this? Thanks a lot.
P.S.: please don't suggest updating to newer AutoCad releases or purchasing any other different CAD suite, it's not possible at this time
I use Autocad 2014 by the way. I just type in igesimport on the commandline and select the desired iges file to be converted/imported.
But, you could Also try this online convertion website.
here is the link http://www.cadforum.cz/cadforum_en/formats.asp?fmt=F3D
Good luck :)

I would type IGES import to autocad.
wait for the import process to finish
and then save as dxf
Good Luck :)
If this helps, Please Don't forget to click 'upvote / it worked'.
Good, but how? I find no menu option to import such files nor equivalent line command. Or do you mean the external app?
Unsuccessful, but thanks anyway!
Thanks everybody. It seems I'll have to write a converter myself...
Install FreeCAD, it's free, and let it do to him.
Grazie, Antonio! I'll try it
I don't think that IGES import/export was available in 2005. I remember having it in the nineties (version 12 or 13), then it went away and required an add-in for extra cost (around $400 US at the time). I could be wrong, but I don't think it was put back into plain AutoCAD.
