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 :)

wait for the import process to finish
and then save as dxf

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.

Good, but how? I find no menu option to import such files nor equivalent line command. Or do you mean the external app?

Thanks everybody. It seems I'll have to write a converter myself...

Install FreeCAD, it's free, and let it do to him.
