Nurbs

Recommended Posts

I had someone send me a drawing in .igs format so I could get it in 3-D. When I import the .igs it is a bunch of nurbs curves. How can I make this something I can give fill properties to?

You can't.

Iges is supposed to be standardized, but I have had different results importing from different sources. Also separating objects can sometimes be a problem after import.

If you have other 3D programs than VW, maybe you can try one of them as a translator.

If not ask the source to change settings and export again. When it works, it is quite wonderful compared to DXF/DWG.

If you can have the person save two IGS files, one with trimmed and the other with untrimmed nurbs, you may have better luck figuring out where the problem is.
