Hi I also need to convert this file to an IGES file and I do not have AutoCAD Mechanical. Could someone please help me with this? Thank you in advance foryour help.
This program is really helpful and easy to use: http://www.gidhome.com/
You can download the evaluation version for free, but geometry is limited to 25 surfaces and meshes are limited to 1000 nodes.
It worked perfectly for me.
Can anyone help me to transform a .DWG file in IGES please?
I am working in Autocad 2000. A few months ago, I was able to open my drawing with Mechanical Desktop and export it as an IGES file. Why is not working any more I don't know.
Instead of pop up window asking me for the name and path for saving, now he said that IGES processing complete but I can found 2 files: one has an .xlo extension that I never heard of and one has no extension at all.
I've sent those 2 files to vacuum forming people assuming that they can do something but it is not working.
Thank you in advance for your time and help
This is a Mechanical Desktop file, not an AutoCAD Mechanical file.
Someone would need MDT and Inventor to translate.
I recommend you use the ACISOUT command and then post the results over in the Inventor forum for translation to IGES.
try the attached file.
