A file with .igs (Initial Graphics Exchange) extension is a 2D-3D design exchange file format that is independent of source or destination file format specifications used by CAD applications. It is used to exchange design information about circuit diagrams, wireframes, the freeform surfaces between two independent systems. IGS files can be opened by applications such as Autodesk, FreeCAD, CADEX CAD Exchanger, and other similar applications.
Enhanced metafile format (EMF) stores graphical images device-independently. Metafiles of EMF comprises of variable-length records in chronological order that can render the stored image after parsing on any output device. These variable-length records can be definitions of enclosed objects, commands for drawing, and graphics properties critical to render the image accurately.
You can also convert IGS into many other file formats. Please see the complete list below.
