Menu: Files->Export->IGES...

GiD can export the geometry in IGES format (version 5.3).

If the preference 'IGES:B-Rep output style' is set (see Preferences ), then the output file is written in Boundary representation solid model style; otherwise the surfaces are written as separated trimmed surfaces, without topological information, and the volumes are ignored.

The IGES geometric entities generated are:

116 Point

110 Line

102 Composite curve

126 Rational B-spline curve

128 Rational B-spline surface

142 Curve on a parametric surface

144 Trimmed surface

and the topological entities are (B Rep style):

186 Manifold solid B-rep object

502 Vertex

504 Edge

508 Loop

510 Face

514 Shell
