Exporting XYZ file of solid / surface model in Inventor

I have developed a 3d model of a physical model I have been working with, I now need to export an XYZ table at various point densities.  Could someone please point me in the direction of an internal Inventor function or a suitable 3rd party application which is capable of essentially digitising the surface of the model.


The Inventor model file is in .ipt format and I need XYZ coordinates and to also extract edge lines / breaklines to use in 3rd party CFD software.


Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
