Does anyone know of a way to import solid files in an IGES format into AutoCad? It appears that they did away with the IGESIN command.

...... did they at some point move the IGES import capability to a separate plugin, module or something related (which of course would have to acquire separately) - or could be I'm remembering it all wrong? Remember sometime way back finding a number of IGES import tools for acad online (when working with some "stitching " problems and was getting desperate), don't know whether they're really an option.

I think they have moved it to some kind of "data applications" package. I know in AC 2002, you needed Mechanical Desktop to import IGES. I haven't been able to find a straight answer for 2000 which is what we use.

I'll take anything right now. I have found a couple but they are a little pricey. I guess I'll keep hunting on line. Thanks Perennial!

If you can import some other version of file, such as parasolid or something, I'd be happy to try and convert it to some other file format for you. We have NX 4.0 which can export parasolid, step, or iges.

EDIT: It also looks like I might be able to export to DXF/DWG, isn't that AutoCAD?

My original assembly is in Pro/E which I can export to pretty much anything, including iges, but AutoCAD doesn't support any of them any longer. If you can export to DWG or DXF that would be a home run! Unfortunately, even though there is nothing classified in it, it is for my work and I don't think it would be looked upon too kindly if I put this out in the open (there is some proprietary items in it). Thanks a ton for the offer though ME.

Was it the "data exchange module"? It's probably bunched with mechanical desktop. Same thing with NX I primarily use nowadays for model construction, have to buy plugins separately . Don't know how reliable those "around $200" plugins are, hope for the best. I often use Femap to do the translations, it supports and converts pretty much anything.
